ANN: Killink's Retirement

Posted by Kirby Turner on August 18, 2015

The time has come to retire Killink CVS Editor. This is not an easy decision for me to make. But with the recent release of Windows 10 and the lack of active development work going into Killink, I feel it is time.


ANN: Peak App Care

Posted by Kirby Turner on August 13, 2015

I’m excited to announce a new service from White Peak Software called Peak App Care. Peak App Care is a monthly subscription service for maintaining your iOS apps. What do I mean by that? Simply put, we monitor your app for crashes and fix them as quickly as possible. Not only that, we perform small jobs such as bug fixes and enhancements to your app at your request, and we even manage the App Store for you, from updating screenshots to submitting new builds on your behalf.


Quickly Post Photos To Facebook

Posted by Kirby Turner on March 25, 2015

Last night a friend of mine was trying to post photos to Facebook. We were at Stowe Cider for their Cider House Rules event, which, by the way, was a lot of fun. Unfortunately for my friend the Facebook app was slow to load and it crashed a few times on her iPhone. The slow Internet connection was the likely cause of the problem, but even if the Internet connection had been better, my friend would still have to wait for the Facebook app to do its thing before she could post the photos. That’s when I showed her my app, Cross Post.


2014 Year In Review

Posted by Kirby Turner on January 01, 2015

Here we are, January 1, 2015. I decided not to write a 2014 Year in Review post, but then this morning I read some 2014 year in reviews from other bootstrappers, which in turned led to me re-read my own reviews from 2009, 2012, and 2013. Actually the 2013 review is more of a 10 years in review, but it still talks about what happened with White Peak Software in 2013. After reading these other posts, I changed my mind about writing a 2014 Year in Review post, so without further ado here is my 2014 Year in Review.


ANN: Cross Post, Sharing Across Social Sites Made Simple

Posted by Kirby Turner on November 20, 2014

image I am thrilled to announce the release of Cross Post, a new app for iPhone and iPad that makes it simple to share your post, photos, and links to Facebook, Twitter, and I talk in detail why I decided to write Cross Post over on my personal blog site, but long story short, I wanted a better way to share my thoughts and photos across different social media sites. And Cross Post is that better way.


iOS Exclusive, Well, Not Really

Posted by Kirby Turner on March 17, 2014

Earlier today I was asked if I’m exclusively iOS with regard to the work I do. My initial response was “yes”, but it occurred to me that I’m not exclusively an iOS developer. Sure, development work on iOS is my primary source of income, but I do work with other programming languages and platforms.


Woohoo! White Peak Software is 10 Years Old

Posted by Kirby Turner on November 27, 2013

On November 23 White Peak Software celebrated 10 years of being in business. This is a huge milestone for me as there have been times, even recently, when I’ve thought about quitting. But despite the rough patches, I can’t image being happier working elsewhere.


ANN: Big Screen Out in the Wild Early

Posted by Kirby Turner on November 17, 2013

Last night I made a teaser tweet about Big Screen being approved by Apple. The idea was to pique interest in the app I plan to release in a few weeks. But silly me, I forgot to set the available date to a date in the future, and soon after my tweet people were downloading Big Screen. As my friend John Brayton said, I need to “think of it as extending a beta to anyone on the app store.” So with that, I’m happy to announce Big Screen is now available to everyone.
