Automatic incremental build number in xCode 4.3


I have always wondered how to get a better build number in my projects, instead of having to change is manually. So, I finally googled it and found a solution. Or better yet, found several… but none working for xCode 4.3.

In xCode 4.3 you can actually change the build number manually in the project settings. I have not found a solution yet to activate an automatic build number update, however I have not search so much for that either.

An open letter to…

… all whom are or thinking of parsing the City Bikes data for Stockholm.

I felt I needed to write this post since I have been thinking about a “twitter” conversation I had a few weeks ago with some Spanish dude.

Since I have the sole right to the Clear Channel API’s for the Citybikes in Stockholm, I choose not to share these publicly with 3rd parties. This (off course) seems to annoy some people. Shortly after I received a question from an other developer regarding why I don’t want to share these publicly.

iOS iPhone 4.3.1: Reclaim “other” space..


This is something that has been bothering me for quite some time. I have an iPhone 4 32gb. I chose this model due to that I have quite a lot of pictures which I want to take with me. So, I sync my iPhone with iPhoto and copy about 9000 pics to my device. Still… this isn’t that much space.. only about 5-6gb. BUT… now the other day I got the error message from iTunes stating that “some pictures could not be copied due lack of space” (My translation from Swedish). So I checked the disk usage in iTunes and I have over 10gb used in “Other”. The biggest space users was the category “Application” which was about 9.2gb.
