I took two months off between my resignation and graduate school, and I used most of that time learning Swift and Android’s SDK by re-implementing Plates. This was back in June, and even though I (almost) completed the work on both of them in August, I’ve been procrastinating the release. Until now (for iOS, at least).
The new iOS Plates is much snappier, smoother, and comes with offline synchronization. I am still struggling with iTune Connect to delete the old version (for some reason I’m getting an error) and also trying to convince Apple to upgrade my seller account to Burkan Labs rather than my name.
Anyway, check it out here.
