After the success of The Old Republic Codex (T.O.R Codex) we imediately being brainstorming our next project, and this was it. As with T.O.R. Codex, we’ll continue to update and expand the app up until and past launch.
iGo Toronto was the first iOS app I worked on. I used it to teach myself how to construct interfaces in UIKit (the framework most iOS applications are built out of) … and how not to.
After almost two years of iOS development through Offblast Softworks and professionally, I feel very nostalgic coming back to thinking about the future of iGo Toronto.
Although I’ve known for a while that I wouldn’t have very much time to update iGo Toronto in the future, today I’ve decided I should consider the app retired. As of today, I will no longer charge $1 for the app, but instead have iGo Toronto become free and take iGo Toronto Lite off the iTunes store.
I plan to update the GO schedules this week, after that I cannot commit to updating them again. One of the biggest challenges with the project has been keeping my schedules valid, and it’s been a very monotonous and time consuming process.
I hope people continue to find iGo Toronto to be a useful tool, and if it’s GO Transit information is found to be lacking, I recommend you turn to the excellent (and free) Official GO Transit App.
I (through Offblast Softworks and other development studios) will be concentrating on new projects, and will continue to post here and on my personal blog.
