Image Tinter has been released on the Mac App Store! Image Tinter allows you to easily add a tint color to your images! All you have to do is drag and drop an image onto the window, select the color you wish to tint your image, and adjust the opacity level of the tint color. Image Tinter will apply the tint color over the opaque regions of your image. Image Tinter allows you to completely change the color of fully opaque icons and/or apply an awesome semi-transparent tint color overlay to your images! Tinting images has never been so easy!

Practically every designer, photographer, and app developer needs to tint images at some point or another. We’ve all been lost in those image editors with thousands of buttons and ambiguous icons and not had the slightest clue what you actually need to do to apply a nice tint color to an image! Isn’t this supposed to be easy?! When you open a clunky image editor to tint an image, you are basically using a chainsaw to cut a steak. It’s not the best tool for the job! So what is the best tool for the job? Image Tinter.

Features:
-Apply a tint color to your images!
-Adjust the opacity level of the tint color by using the slider! Full opacity will completely overlay the opaque regions of your image with your selected tint color! You can use this to change the color of icons! You can also lower the opacity of the color to overlay images with a semi-transparent tint!
-You can save your favorite tint colors in the “Favorite Colors” palette! Working on a project that has a certain color scheme? Save all your favorite colors to use on other images later! You won’t have to play with RGB sliders to get your colors back every time you launch the application!

So what are you waiting for? Get Image Tinter now!

RGB Sliders on iOS with Core Graphics

I’m currently working on an iOS application that needs some UI elements to allow users to choose colors. Basically, by the time I finish I’d like to have an iOS-styled equivalent to what NSColorPanel does for us on the Mac. I figured a good place to start is to make some RGB sliders. The sliders in the view are drawn with Core Graphics. This video is running at 2x speed.

Under Over Free Released on the App Store!

Today, I have released Under Over Free for iOS. Under Over Free is a fun little dice game. The rules are simple, you make a bet that the total value of your dice roll will be under seven, over seven, or exactly seven (you can make multiple bets for a single roll). Under seven and over seven bets pay 1-1, while exactly seven bets pay 4-1.

The app is universal (meaning it is optimized for all iPhone models and iPad) and also supports landscape and portrait orientations.

Under Over Free is a simple and fun little game. I imagine it will pass the time well while your waiting at the bus stop or perhaps to use as a crutch while you are procrastinating.

So get the game! It certainly can’t hurt because well, it’s free.

Tutorial: How to Redeem a Promo Code for a Free Download on the Mac App Store

Sometimes, Mac developers are kind enough to give promo codes out so people can download a copy of their paid applications for free. A promo code is simply a combination of characters you can use on the Mac App Store to get the app for free, but how do you use them? It’s easy. First, open up the Mac App Store application. After the window has finished loading, you will see to your right a link that says Redeem. Click it.

After you click the link a sheet will pop up asking you to log in with your Apple ID to redeem your code, so go ahead and log in!

After you log in, you will be brought to a screen with a title that says “Redeem Code”. At the bottom, you will see a text field where you can enter your redeem code. Enter it and the application will start downloading! That’s it!
