New York City Citi Bikes are now available.

New York City has launched the first phase of its bikeshare programme 10 months after it was scheduled to start.

The scheme placed 6,000 bikes at 333 stations in the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn.

It is supposed to grow to 10,000 “Citi bikes” at 600 stations and could become one of the largest of its kind.

And we have a new app coming out to help you find your station, and keep track of your time. We have just submitted it to Apple, and are waiting for them to approve it. Check back here in a few days.

And always remember its “a flat 40-40-40 flip flop and flap fee”.

Manually managing mp3, books or movies on your iPad or iPhone

I have often got stuck when adding new books or movies to iTunes. I would hunt around, trying to find the magic button which lets me add in files manually, which is how I prefer manage it.

The button I am looking for, but often forget what it is called is “on this iPad”. Which is fine when I see it, but often this button gets hidden if the iTunes window is too small. There is no menu option that I could find, and no other way to get to the manual addition of files. To this right you can see what the screen looks like if the window is too small. No message, no indication that there are more buttons, nothing. This is minimization, Apple style.

The fix is just make the width of the screen a bit longer.

Some things are clear, for example crunchy peanut butter over smooth peanut butter (peanut butter without peanuts, why?), cycling over running (although I do run a lot these days), some things however are not so clear. Like checking to see it an NSObject is empty. That is why I used this little ditty:

static inline BOOL isEmpty(id thing) {
return thing == nil
|| [thing isKindOfClass:[NSNull class]]
|| ([thing respondsToSelector:@selector(length)]
&& [(NSData *)thing length] == 0)
|| ([thing respondsToSelector:@selector(count)]
&& [(NSArray *)thing count] == 0);

How to use the UITextField

This is what I commonly use as a search bar in my apps, it looks nicely, fits on the iPad screen (portrait), and works really well.

    searchLabel=[[[UITextField alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(50, 110, 648, 40)] autorelease];
searchLabel.textColor = [UIColor blackColor];
[searchLabel addTarget:self action:@selector(textFieldDidChange:) forControlEvents:UIControlEventEditingChanged];
[searchLabel setFont: [UIFont fontWithName:@”Helvetica” size:26]];
[self.view addSubview:searchLabel];

Whenever a key is pressed, -(void)textFieldDidChange:(id)sel is called, so I can respond straight away. The iPad and iPhone is fast enough to search through 1000s of entries and display them instantly. The clearButtonMode puts up an x at the end of the text field, so you can delete all the text. Sometimes you may want UIKeyboardTypeNumberPad, or some other variation, but I have commented it out here, so it goes with the default keyboard.
