1. AFCircularGestureRecognizer

    January 4, 2011 by accidentalfish

    For a current project I needed to track a single fingered circular gesture and although iOS provides for tracking of a two fingered rotational gesture it doesn’t have any built in functionality to track a single finger circular gesture. Fortunately you can implement your own gesture tracking by subclassing UIGestureRecognizer.

    I’ve implemented a fairly simple gesture recognizer for this and placed it on GitHub. It’s called AFCircularGestureRecognizer and sample code is included. It’s released under the permissive MIT license.

    I hope it’s useful to someone.

  2. Mocking Pad – Promo Code Giveaway

    November 28, 2010 by accidentalfish

    Looks like all the codes have all gone I’m afraid.

    Fancy a free copy of Mocking Pad for your iPad? Yes? Well give one of these promo codes a go in the US iTunes store:


    First come first served!

    If you try it and like it (or not!) I’d love to hear your feedback: I want Mocking Pad to be hands down the best mocking and wireframing application for the iPad.

    You do need a US iTunes account to redeem promo codes (Apple’s limitation not mine) but if you’re not in the US you can use this sneaky workaround to create an account without a US registered credit card.
