Take Me Home was a good “Hello, World!” iOS app, but its time has come. I’ve pulled Take Me Home from the App Store. Goodnight, sweet prince.
Take Me Home is an ancient, buggy iPhone app that was my “Hello, World!” in the App Store. Its sale rate has plummeted to only a couple of buyers a week and, with the prevalence of real, honest-to-God GPS apps in the store these days, its usefulness is questionable. So from here on out, it’s free. I can’t promise to continue supporting it—especially for new devices and APIs—so the best I can do may be to remove it from the store in the event that some update breaks it.
I’ve just sent in version 1.1.1 of Take Me Home. It’s a minor fix with the following updates:
-Progress bar now updates more accurately
-Current location accuracy now displayed to user
Well, due to an App Store snafu, Take Me Home’s version number is wrong—1.0.1 instead of 1.1—but the new version is now available via iTunes. This release fixes problems people with the original iPhone and iPod Touch were having; there is now a progress bar that fills up as your iPhone has a better lock on your current location.
