    Had a really good time building this the last three weeks!

  • Posted to Braun BN0032 Watch Screen Saver, Mar 12, 2014

    Just a little open source screensaver I've been working on. I recreated the Braun BN0032 (the watch I wear everyday) entirely in code.

    It was a fun little project. I did the hands one morning this weekend and the rest of it last night.

    There's a light and dark style and you can toggle on and off all of the interface elements. Drawing that little arrow for the date in code took the most time, but it wasn't too bad. It's worth nothing, this is all vector and is exactly proportioned to the actual watch.

    I was thinking about implementing the rest of their watches and having a model selector. There's some neat challenges in their higher end watches.

    Download here. Enjoy!

    Cool! Ya I'm working with the Layer Vault folks to get some sort of push going. Probably won't make it into 1.0, but definitely at some point.

    I like the MOTD flinking idea :)

    We answered a few questions and talked about what we're building. Here's a few minute video of all of it:

    I thought that was funny too. He said the developers he hired for Cheddar told him it was good.

    We're spending a lot of time on this to make it really great. If we made it cheaper, we'd have to spend less time on it. Making so, so content is pointless, so we decided to make good stuff.

    We'll try to post some stuff today. Not sure I'll have time to edit it since we're shooting all day, but I'll try!

    It's not really how-to format. It's filming me explaining things to Josh and building an app.

    Treehouse is great. Nothing bad to say about them. Execute iOS is designed for someone with no programming experience that wants to jump in. If you want to get tutorials on specific things, Treehouse is great.

    We're going from 0 to a real app.
