Ikea for iPhone app

Ikea finally made an app for the iPhone. And it’s free.
That concludes the good news. The bad news is that it sucks in every way possible.
First of all, after you download the app and start it for the first time it says you first need to download a catalogue, which for the Netherlands is almost 60MB. I knew we were off on the wrong foot here. And it went downhill further. What you get is basically a glorified pdf viewer dressed up as an app. But with added functionality, you can click on the + next to products to se product information… yay… except that rarely works and most often you get an error page as demonstrated in the screenshots telling you the product information is not available.
So yeah, epic fail for Ikea, hopefully they’ll learn and eventually make a better version than this heap of crap.

Ikea hacker


We all know case modding, console modding and chip modding, now here’s something new… Ikea hacking or modding;
Ikea Hacker.
A whole website dedicated to chopping Ikea bits of furniture, modifying them and using them in whole new ways. Some things look a bit iffy, but there’s a lot of nice tweaks in there and some pretty creative applications.

Ikea madness

We spend waaaaay too much time there. But it’s fun.
This pic’s from last weekend.

Work in progress... not home!
Trying to get all/most of the new code working before I start on the eyecandy.
