Text Groups for the iPhone

Do you send text messages to a group of people over and over again? Maybe you have a group of friends or colleagues that you usually text/SMS all at the same time? Or maybe you usually send the same message to a person or group of persons? Then Text Groups is the application for you.
Text Groups allows you to create groups from your contacts, and you can easily access these groups to send a text message, without adding each contact again and again. You specify a group name, a default message, and even a group icon so that you can differentiate between groups. You can then add, edit and remove contacts easily, and even define new phone numbers not coming from your phone's address book.

Text Groups uses in-app SMS, which allows you to send the group text message without leaving the application, making the experience easy and seamless.

Yes folks, it's my new iPhone app. Download it from here.

iPhone Apps Featured on TV and in Print

Credit: ANC
It is with great pride that I share with you two articles that came out in print and online about the iPhone apps that I've built. I was contacted by a major daily (Businessworld) and they interviewed me about my iPhone apps. Coincidentally, a news TV channel (ANC) also contacted me to appear in a live TV interview.
Suffice to say, the experience has encouraged me to work harder on my iPhone apps. They may not be bringing in the revenue that I expect, but I am sure that somewhere in the world, I have helped someone with one or two of my apps.

I'm sharing with you the two articles that were written about me:

Entreprenews - Digital Diversions

ABS-CBN News: Extra Raket Anyone?

I would also like to invite everyone to buy the August issue of Sense and Style magazine. I have a review article on the iPhone 4.

Ping.fm's problem with any app with the word Ping

It all started April 9, 2010, when Apple sent me a message from Ping.fm:

So apparently, Ping.fm thinks that my app's icon/logo QuickPing, looks like Ping.fm's logo.

My app's logo:

Ping.fm's logo:

The font of my Ping logo is Helvetica, the most common font in the whole world. I like Helvetica, and I use it for most of my work. They were telling me that I copied Ping.fm's logo. Ludicrous.

Since I am just an individual, independent developer, I agreed and changed the app logo from Ping to a simple P, as shown below:

And submitted the change to Apple, both for QuickPing and QuickPing Free.

I thought everything was fine, until I received a new note from Ping.fm:

Dear Sir or Madam,
Thank you for your e-mail below.
We noticed that changes were made to the app entitled "QuickPing Free" (see, e.g., the logo).
We would very much appreciate it if you can inform the developer that if similar changes were to be made to the app entitled "QuickPing" and also using a lower-case "p" to read "Quickping" in the name and the description for both apps then that would be in the right direction to help resolve this matter.

Now Ping.fm wants me to change the NAME OF MY APPLICATION to Quickping from QuickPing. Not a big change, I know, but it looks like Ping.fm is now claiming that every word that has the word Ping in it is theirs. What the hell?

If that's the case, did Ping.fm also complain to the Apple about these following apps? Why haven't they changed their names?

Ping! Lite
Network Ping Lite
Network Ping
Ping For Fun
Ping Later

This is really stupid. I'm a fan of Ping.fm and all (and that's why I made the app), but this is ridiculous.

Encrypt SMS - Send Secret Text Messages

Hello all,

My new application, Encrypt SMS, is now available at the AppStore!

Encrypt SMS is a tool that allows you to encrypt messages that you send out with a password, and only those that have the same password can successfully decrypt and read the messages. (Recipient must have the same application on their iPhone.)

Encrypt SMS uses AES-256 encryption, a military-grade encryption composed of a 256 bit key to ensure that it will not be easily broken. The US government itself uses AES encryption to secure classified information! You too can have access to this high level of security with Encrypt SMS.

Available only in the US and Canada for $0.99.

The app download link is http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=349861478&mt=8

I have promo codes available, first come, first served!


Check it out!
