BitBQ Acquires TouchPad and NumPad

, by Patrick. Filed under Announcements, App Store, NumPad, TouchPad. No Comments

I’m excited to announce that BitBQ has acquired TouchPad and NumPad from Edovia! Luc Vandal at Edovia approached me wanting to find these apps a good home and wondered if I knew anyone who would be interested. I let him know I was interested and we started talking about where the apps are now and where they could go in the future. Luc and I had similar ideas about where to take the apps.

NumPad is the kind of app I’ve thought about writing myself as I love the size of the Apple wireless keyboard, but I really miss the key pad of the extended keyboard at times. Particularly when I’m working with spreadsheets and other financial applications. But I also see a lot of expansion for NumPad to go beyond just being a 10-key. It already supports custom keys for specific applications and I plan on exploring more key sets that power users of different applications would find useful.

TouchPad really helps with home theater setups that include a PC that needs to be remotely controlled. It’s also useful for controlling a machine during a presentation. And on top of that includes Apple Remote support for controlling media playback on your Mac as well. Stopping just short of full on remote desktop client, this app provides all the control you need to stay on the couch and to keep the mouse and keyboard out of the living room. I have a couple of more ideas for things to control with this app.

The apps have already been transferred to BitBQ via a new process within the App Store. That means unlike previous ownership transfers, this time all previous customers don’t need to re-purchase the app to receive updates. Everything transferred over and the apps are now controlled by BitBQ.

Both of these apps are great utilities for iOS and have great followings. I plan to continue building on that and adding new features as well as updates to take better advantage of technologies available in iOS 7. Not to mention the much different iOS 7 visual style.

If you have any questions or feature requests, feel free to get in touch.

The latest update to FitnessTrack has been released. This is a bug fix update that fixes a critical bug in saving set data for cardio workouts.

QueueUp Discontinued

Today, Netflix announced that they have essentially stopped development for the third party API that QueueUp uses to access Netflix. While QueueUp will continue to work for the time being, I can no longer put resources into a product that relies on something that Netflix clearly no longer wants to support.

Many thanks to those of you who have purchased and used QueueUp since its release. It’s a shame it has to come to an end.
