Knit Counter 1.4 released

Knit Counter and Knit Counter Lite 1.4 are now available for download from the App Store.

While superficially it may not seem all that different from Knit Counter 1.3.5, version 1.4 of Knit Counter is the biggest update since its original release in 2009. iPhones have changed a lot over the past 9 years, and with the release of the iPhone X last year, I finally reached a point where keeping Knit Counter updated in its current state was no longer practical. This new version of Knit Counter is a complete rewrite from the ground up; one I’m hopeful will be easier to maintain and update in the future.

There are lots of new features as well:

  • Support for the iPhone X.
  • Improvements for iOS 11.
  • Improvements to accessibility and VoiceOver support.
  • Support for Dynamic Type.
  • Knit Counter’s settings are now accessible from inside the app.
  • Import and export projects to and from Knit Counter.
  • Export your project from Knit Counter Lite to Knit Counter.
  • 3D touch shortcuts for easy access to recent projects.
  • Counters can be reset to their minimum values by holding the minus button down for a few seconds.
  • Multiple counters can now to link to the same counter.

As always, if you run into any problems with the new version, please contact us, either via email at support@cordlessdog.com, on Twitter @cordlessdog, or via the Cordless Dog Users Group on Ravelry.

Support for macOS 10.12 Sierra and iOS 10

With the first public beta releases of macOS 10.12 Sierra and iOS 10 now available, it’s an opportune time to talk about our apps’ compatibility with the new OSs.

From the testing we’ve done so far, there don’t seem to be any major problems with Stay, AirVolume, or Knit Counter on the new versions of macOS and iOS. That said, beta operating systems are subject to frequent change, so we don’t officially support running any of our apps on macOS 10.12 or iOS 10 until both operating systems are out of beta and publicly released.

We have new versions of Stay, AirVolume, and Knit Counter in development, and our aim is to ensure that any compatibility fixes that are required to support the new operating systems are included in these new releases.

If you’re already running any of our apps on a beta OS and you notice problems, please let us know so that we can work on fixes as early as possible. You can contact us by email at support@cordlessdog.com or on Twitter at @cordlessdog.


Stay 1.2.5 released

Version 1.2.5 of Stay is now available and can be downloaded here.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed a bug that prevented hotkeys from working under certain circumstances.
  • Fixed a bug that caused Stay to sometimes automatically restore windows unnecessarily.
  • Fixed a bug causing Stay to correctly resize but not reposition windows under certain conditions.
  • Fixed a bug that made it impossible to edit shell script actions under certain circumstances.
  • Fixed a crash in the window linking interface.
  • Fixed a crash in the preferences interface.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the progress window from being displayed on OS X 10.11.
  • Stay can now store and restore windows when there are multiple copies of an application running simultaneously.

Stay 1.2.5 will only run on versions of OS X from 10.10.5 onwards. Stay 1.2.4 remains available for use on OS X 10.9 and can be downloaded here.


OS X 10.11 El Capitan support

Update 30th September 2015: Stay 1.2.5 has been released

With a new version of OS X on the horizon, we’re starting to finish up work on the next version of Stay. This year though, we thought we’d try something a little different and make beta versions available as we go.

So with that, version 1.2.5b8 of Stay is now available and can be downloaded here.

The usual beta caveats apply:

  • Beta versions aren’t tested as extensively as release versions are, so things may be broken.
  • Make a backup of your Stay configuration (copy the folder at ~/Library/Application Support/Stay) before running the beta, just in case.
  • If you run into any problems, please let us know via email (support@cordlessdog.com), or on Twitter (@cordlessdog).

Here’s the list of changes in Stay 1.2.5b8:

General Changes

  • Beta compatibility with OS X 10.11 El Capitan.
  • Stay can now store and restore windows when there are multiple copies of an application running simultaneously.
  • Stay 1.2.5b8 requires a minimum of OS X 10.10.4.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed a bug that prevented hot keys from working under certain circumstances.
  • Fixed a bug that caused Stay to sometimes automatically restore windows unnecessarily.
  • Fixed a bug causing Stay to correctly resize but not reposition windows when restoring under certain conditions.
  • Fixed a bug that made it impossible to edit shell script actions under certain circumstances.
  • Fixed a crash in the window linking interface.
  • Fixed a crash in the preferences interface.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the progress window from being displayed on OS X 10.11.

AirVolume 1.0 released

Today marks the release of a new Cordless Dog app for OS X called AirVolume.

AirVolume improves the experience of using iTunes with AirPlay, by allowing you to control the volume in iTunes using the volume keys on your Mac’s keyboard.

AirVolume doesn’t take control of your volume keys indiscriminately though: it monitors iTunes and and automatically enables and disables itself as you enable or disable AirPlay, or play and pause music.

And best of all, AirVolume is completely free!

You can download it here:
