MakeIcons

MakeIcons is a very simple to use app for macOS that will produce a range of different size icons for Xcode developers to use in their app development. Simply create a large version of your icon using your favorite graphics app, and drop it onto the canvas. You can then either click a button to produce iOS and watchOS icons, or another button for macOS icons. You can also create any size icon you want as Apple introduces new icon sizes, without waiting for the latest version of the app to include these new sizes. It is fast and simple, and I have created an extra bonus whereby you can also create TabBar item icons. iOS icons are produced for more than 10 different sizes, at x1, x2, and x3 resolutions, and watchOS and macOS get x1 and x2 resolutions. You can then simply drag and drop all of the icons into Xcode, and they will all go into their appropriate image slot (you may need to make a few minor additions).

LearnGraphs

This app is great for scholars and parents wishing to understand graphs in mathematics. While there are many graphing calculators that allow you to graph many complex functions, this one focuses on teaching simple grade 10 math graphs in a really simple and visual way. Using sliders to change the values of variables, you can see the impact the variable has on the overall equation or function, as well as other interesting things like x and y intercepts and asymptotes. You will quickly grasp just how simple graphs are by watching them change shape and move around as the value of a variable becomes larger or smaller or goes from positive to negative, or zero. Even parents will wish they had this app when they went to school, as they too will grasp just how easy and fun math is.

Specifically, the following graphs are included:
1. Lines of the form y = mx+c or ax+b
2. Parabolas of the form y = ax^2+bx+c
3. Hyperbolas of the form y = a/(x+b)+c
4. Exponentials of the form y = ab^x+c
5. Trigonometric function (sin, cos, and tan) of the form y = a*sin(bx)+c or a*cos(bx)+c or a*tan(bx)+c

You can also pan around the graphs and pinch to zoom in and out, and just tap the graph to reset the pan and zoom.

Enjoy learning math graphs, and drop me an email if you would like me to include a couple of other graphs that you or or children are struggling with.

Speedometers

Speedometers is a really simple and beautiful speedometer for your truck, car, motorbike, or bicycle. It uses GPS on your iPhone or iPad to establish your speed, and shows this information graphically in a simple user interface. You can change the units from miles per hour to kilometres per hour and back, and change the top speed of the speedometer reading. You can also let your speed guide what the top speed shown should be.
