iOS 6, Form 1 and a personal update…
I realise I haven’t made a blog post in a while - I’ve been busy working on Snag List and my day job, as an I.T Consultant in London.
For those of you that don’t already know (who haven’t followed me on LinkedIn, Twitter or Facebook, I currently live in London and work as a mobile developer. London’s great, however after being here for two years I’ve felt that I needed a change of scenery, so I’m packing up and moving to Berlin!
Why Berlin? Well, the start up scene there is great, it’s also a very up and coming city and has been in the news lately about the sheer number of people flocking there. I’ll still be working on Snag List, as it’s something I do in my spare time anyway…It might also be nice to start featuring posts about Berlin in this blog, something I would be keen on doing.
So, following the release of iOS 6 and the removal of Google Maps, Snag List has only suffered one bug, the background on the main page is now black instead of the grey cross hatched image. The fix is already submitted to Apple and should be approved shortly.
I also mentioned before that I’d like to make posts regarding cool technology that’s current, so here is the first post: Form 1.
Form 1 is a beautifully designed 3D printer that’s currently being proposed on Kickstarter, a crowd funding platform which aims to bypass the middle-man or publisher.
What I love about Form 1 is that they’re aiming to bring 3D printing to more people by making it really affordable (including the material used to print). Those of you who are familiar with CAD, Blender, 3DS Max, Maya etc would be able to knock up a model, export it to the Form 1 software and print the object straight away.
You could use it for replacement fittings, miniatures to paint, replacing broken toy parts…
