Apologies for the quiet blog this week. I am extremely busy ironing out the SlideMagic 2.0 app. This week the focus is on tightening the integration with the Windows and Mac operating systems:
Designing app and file icons that look good and stand out next to other desktop icons (clutter)
Linking those icons with the ‘.magic’ file extension on a computer
Making sure double clicking icons, recent files, recent files in the dock, etc. works
Certifying the app both with Apple and with a certification agency for Windows so that double clicking an installer does not generate scary security warnings
Adding SSL security to file downloads
Accept-cookie banners, and other regulatory issues
To be continued. Beta testers can check in now and then to download a later version of the installer, I am putting a new one up almost every day now.
