Functional Swift Conference
December 7, 2014

I went to the Functional Swift Conference yesterday; (12/7/14). For those of you who did not attend, videos will be posted soon and I would highly recommend you to check them out when they are posted. Big thanks to the organizers for putting this all together and Kickstarter for hosting the event!

It was quite good. The conference was free of charge, but they surely could have charged a decent amount of money for attendance.

The quality of the speakers was top notch, and each provided great, and unique contributions to a solid central message further convincing me of the fact that functional...

7 Minute Workouts
November 8, 2014

I just released a new app 7 Minute Workouts. The reasons for creating this are similiar to my reasons for Steps+.

In addition to these things I was tired of being asked to upgrade and nickeled and dimed for seperate workouts and buying 'everything' but that doesn't include all workouts. Not chill. And you can't *really* customize in most of these apps.
Mine is 100% free and fully customizable. Download it and let me know what you think!!!

Soulver
May 13, 2014

In case you missed it: Soulver is on sale for 1.99 USD on the Mac App Store.

I've been using this app for a while now and it has become a critical part of my development (and other) workflow.


New Blog!
May 13, 2014

So... I decided to start a blog.

Who am I?

My name is Kenny Ackerson. I am a software developer from Salisbury MD, and I have been programming for iOS for about 4 years. I create software, and do a fair amount of iOS contracting work.

What am I interested in (and potentially will be writing about - most of these are pretty obvious)?

- Programming
- Technology - Fitness software really interests me and I have written multiple pieces of software of that sort.
- General Apple ecosystem topics.
- I love pears.


What do I want (in general) to do from this blog?

- Connect with more developers...

libKPAPedometer
March 27, 2014

I’ve been working on a pet project for the last couple months called libKPAPedometer and it started out as a basic project but has grown to be semi-complex and I decided to finally put a page up about it on my site since I plan on selling licenses to use it because it can be potentially useful for people but not necessarily appropriate as open source.

I put the page up, even though it is not done yet; and is still in early alpha. I figure why not and also I am interested to see what kind of interest, if any, people will show. Maybe if I get some interest and also feedback – it could help shape...

Steps+
December 27, 2013

I made a new app for iOS - Steps+, and I would definitely like to explain why I made it, and some of the decisions I made.

You might be thinking: “Wow that looks just like ‘Pedometer++’”, well…. yes – and it is *not* by accident – a lot about Pedometer++ is done right – but not everything. Even the business model is the same (take ‘tips’) – although my app is a little more subtle asking about it. I hope David Smith is not upset; I can’t imagine he would be. I just improved on his design/implementation.

Pedometer++ is a great app; you can see all the steps you have taken and it saves past days...
