  1. Wake On Lan hits controversy and 1.4

    December 1, 2010 by The Man

    Some people are not happy with me using analytics to see how you use the app and on what devices. Nothing nefarious it was just Google analytics for the iPhone which told me what buttons you pressed most.

    BUT if your not happy then I’m not happy. So I have removed all of it.

    I have also fixed a bug that would crash the app on 3.1.3 and lower devices. As ever should be live in about a week.

  2. iPhone App 1.3 – Forever in Review

    November 6, 2010 by The Man

    Well it’s been a week since v1.2 of the iPhone/iPad version of Wake On Lan was submitted to Apples app store. It’s the one annoying feature of the app store that you never know how long it will take. Thankfully I have been hard at work on 1.3 with more features so once 1.2 goes live I will submit 1.3. Here are a few screen shots to keep you going.

  3. Universal version of iDevice application submitted to the app store.

    November 2, 2010 by The Man

    The status for the following app has changed to Waiting For Review.
    App Name: Depicus Wake On Lan
    App Version Number: 1.2

    Fixed a bug when a user input Mac Address but nothing else and pressed wake up the app would crash. (Thanks Hugh)

    Fixed a scrolling issue with the list of already woken machines that would show overlay text.

    Added a bit of extra help information to the help page.

    Our coding monkey have been working full time and eating their bananas and have managed to convert the iPhone app to a Universal app which will run natively on the iPad.

    Should be live in about a week.

  4. Never rest on your laurels

    Started work on the iPad version….

  5. Depicus Wake On Lan for the iPhone is live

    by The Man

    Depicus Wake on Lan for the iPhone is now live on the Apple App Store. You can purchase via iTunes

    It’s priced at £1.29 or $1.99 which I hope you don’t find to much. This helps cover the cost of the developer licence.

    Enjoy and if you have any comments or suggestions please let me know.

  6. Wireshark and WoL

    October 16, 2010 by The Man

    Well colour me purple, after a few false starts I was working on the iPhone app when I noticed Wireshark flagging WoL packets differently. Seems like it has an inbuilt filter for WoL. Yes….
