Version 1.3 of ScopeTool submitted to Apple for verification today, hopefully they'll be as speedy doing their stuff as they were last time.

No major changes in it. We've fixed a couple of text display issues for iOS9 that didn't show up until the final drop, and tweaked the interface a bit to give users a bit more of a hint on how to set their location.

Bigger changes are coming, mind!

ScopeTool v1.2 is live! Get it here.

Don't know if we were just lucky with the timings, but the app made it through validation at Cupertino in super fast time - thanks, Apple!

So, we just need to know how it's working out for you all. Let us know if things are going well or if the app's giving you any problems - you can get us on twitter or email, or leave a comment below.

We've just uploaded v1.2 of ScopeTool for validation on the App Store - fingers crossed it'll get the green light and be released in the next week or so.

Changes in it are:
  • As requested, we've added brightness boost and screen lock to the light tool
  • The compass now shows magnetic north and a warning if the device can't determine true north 
  • We've fixed a number of bugs, including the one that was causing audio playback to be interrupted on app launch
  • iOS9 compatibility fixes
  • And lastly, we've updated the new app icon

As ever, we'd love to hear what changes (or fixes!) you'd like to see in the app, so tweet us (@KrydoDev), mail us (scopetool@krydo.com) or drop us a comment below, thanks!

  • Updates for iOS8 compatibility
  • Bug fixes

Get it here: ScopeTool on App Store

Good news, everyone! ScopeTool v1.0 has been approved and is now available in the App Store.

You can get it here: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/scopetool/id826428287?mt=8

At last, ScopeTool v1.0 has been uploaded to those nice people at Apple.

There's been a bit of a delay in getting it off to them as time has been sucked by a whole host of non-app calls on our time, but the feeling of satisfaction is there all the same; let's just hope it survives the testing process!

Hopefully in a week or so the app will be live on the App Store. Before then we'll be putting up a page about the app, giving a quick overview of the screens. We'll also be sharing thoughts about the first tools that'll be added, and would love your input on this.

Also, if anyone out there can help with translation of the app text, we'd love to provide a localised version so more people can use ScopeTool in their native language. We've got some languages covered, but would appreciate any offers of help with:

  • Italian
  • Polish
  • Russian

Let us know if you can assist!
