Selector iOS Update

Selector icon progression.

Ooh, new flat icon style. So modern…


I’ve updated my iOS app, Selector, and you can get it now on the iTunes store. Years ago, I made this simple little iOS app where a number of people touch the screen and it selects one. That’s it. Oh, it also has a clock, a compass, and lets you draw because … reasons.

It’s a modest app, getting a couple downloads a week, but I hadn’t updated it in years and people were getting notices that it would stop working on future versions of iOS. Surprisingly, I even got a few emails about it. So this past weekend, I decided to do something about it. I mean, how long could it possible take?

11 hours later…

Well, okay, that took a little longer than I thought. Here’s what it entailed:

  • Downloaded the latest Xcode and updated all the provisioning stuff.
  • Fixed aspect ratio by updating the launch image with a storyboard.
  • Updated NIB files.
  • Created a new icon.
  • Switched from deprecated UIAccelerometer to CMMotionManager.
  • Replaced deprecated AudioSessionGetProperty() function calls.
  • Updated screenshots.
