  1. Wake on Lan for OSX updated

    January 8, 2011 by The Man

    Just submitted to the App Store.

    Updates are mainly cosmetic but also added the ability to delete bookmarks.

  2. Mac App Rejection….

    January 1, 2011 by The Man

    Bummer just been rejected for “2.30 Apps that do not comply with the Mac OS X File System documentation will be rejected”

    “The application is creating files or writing to ~/Library/Application Support/Depicus/…. Appropriate app-identifiers are ‘WakeOnLan’, ‘com.depicus.osx.wakeonlan’ and your name”

    Well have filed an appeal so lets see how we get on but looks like I won’t make it into the App Store for launch.

    UPDATE WE WON – Wake on Lan will be in the Mac App Store wheeeeeeeheeee

  3. Wake On Lan – iPhone Speech Recognition !!!

    December 22, 2010 by The Man

    Well have been working on this today. Not sure if it’s a feature I would add to the finished product but it does work.

    If you (don’t) want to see it in the next version let me know in the comments.

  4. WoL Monitor a hit ?

    December 4, 2010 by The Man

    Well the numbers are in for the first two days. To say I am a bit shocked would be an understatement as it seems 199 people thought it was an app they needed. This is strange as my WoL sender app gets about 6 downloads a day and has been live a month, clocking up 239 downloads so far.

    Looks like people want to monitor WoL more than they want to send WoL magic packets 🙂

  5. WoL Monitor for iPad and iPhone

    December 2, 2010 by The Man

    Well I has to make a video for Apple so you might as well see it as well.

    Just a short video of my Wake On Lan monitor in action. No Oscars for this one.

  6. 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.
