Started developing on an Apple II+ in 1981. Developed PISA, full colour presentation system including slide and print output, utilising Apple Graphics Tablet and Digisolve VGP64 with hi-res monitor. Developed printer drivers for most early colour printers and slide recorders. Developed StudioCraft presentation software for colour Macs. Retired to farm, build and raise children in 1991. Took up developing again in 2010 on iOS when I saw the need for a music player that was more suited to stage performers than iTunes App. Developed OneTrack App and released version 1.0 in 2011. Still have too many things on my plate to develop full time but OneTrack is now at version 2 and going strong. Not a huge market but very loyal customers and loads of positive feedback so I'll keep going. Hope to develop more for iPad in future.

comment How to work around the issue that I can't access some iStore apps of a different country?
This has always been a part of the app store. The only way around it that I know of is to create a separate appleID for the second country. This is a pain when updating apps though as you will need to switch appleIDs when doing it. As to understanding the rationale - if you or anyone else can ever explain Apple's rationale you could make a fortune on chat programmes!

comment How do I delete all Music off my iPhone library so nothing appears?
Sounds like you might have iTunes Match turned on - this will link to your iCloud account.

comment How do I add a cover image to an iBook that lacks one?
You can do this sort of thing in Calibre but it's a PITA. iTunes is a beast and should be broken up... so they hive off the books bit... the new stuff looks pretty but lacks functionality... a few versions later it catches up. We all just need loads of patience!

comment Why does my Mac start up immediately when plugged in, while my iPhone needs to start up?
Your Mac is running off the mains whereas your iPhone is running off its battery. The iPhone's battery needs to reach a particular level of charge before it can boot so that it doesn't die during the boot sequence if the charger is disconnected.

comment Downgrade from Xcode 6.1 to Xcode 5.1.1
Try copying it back in from a backup - compress the new version by right clicking on it then choosing compress - then delete the uncompressed app - then copy the older version into applications folder from your backup. If you don't have a backup I have no suggestions.

comment Itunes Keeps deleting my podcasts
Haven't experienced this particular bug but I'm finding iTunes more and more flakey with every release. Maybe you could right click on the podcast (before it disappears), show it in the finder and make a copy to a backup folder.

comment Headphones unable to plug into my 4s
Sounds like you have something stuck inside. Try turning it off fully, holding it upside down and poking around inside the socket with something like a pin but made out of plastic, wood or something non-conductive.

comment Manually cleaning up a threat detected by Sophos Anti-virus?
The greater threat to your Mac is Sophos Antivirus. A windows program cannot run under OSX and so poses no threat.

comment how do i erase all info on macbook air while still keeping microsoft word
I'd just add that you can delete any old accounts as well which will free up space - as long as you have created a new admin account you're fine deleting any other user accounts.
