Convert Font Suitcase to TTF in 3 Easy Steps

Fri Mar 10 11:47:00 2017

I came across the problem of converting an old Mac font format recently. The solution was not immediately apparent, so I will share it here.

1. Open terminal using Spotlight or whatever. It's in /Applications/Utilities.

2. Type the following and make sure you have the names of the font right or it will not work.

cat "<fontname>/..namedfork/rsrc" > ~/"Desktop/<fontname>.dfont"

Hit enter and you should see <fontname>.dfont created on your desktop. You can probably tell it worked if you see a preview of the font as the file icon.

3. Download DfontSplitter. It's free and I found it useful.

Follow the instructions in app, selecting your destination folder, and hit 'Convert'. It's pretty self explanatory.

You should find a .ttf file present wherever you chose to save.

Problem solved. Time for tea and biscuits!

Getting around Apple's silly rules for iOS 10

Fri Nov 4 11:43:36 2016

Having problems uploading to iTunes Connect after iOS 10?

Getting either or both of the following messages?

This app attempts to access privacy-sensitive data without a usage description. The app's Info.plist must contain an NSCalendarsUsageDescription key with a string value explaining to the user how the app uses this data.

This app attempts to access privacy-sensitive data without a usage description. The app's Info.plist must contain an NSCameraUsageDescription key with a string value explaining to the user how the app uses this data.

Then add this to your info.plist file and get around this frustrating menace with a middle finger.

<key>NSBluetoothPeripheralUsageDescription</key>
<string>App would like to use bluetooth.</string>

<key>NSCalendarsUsageDescription</key>
<string>App would like to create a calendar event.</string>

<key>NSCameraUsageDescription</key>
<string>App would like to use your camera.</string>

<key>NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescription</key>
<string>App would like to store a photo.</string>

Be done with it, get over it and grab a coffee. Good luck!

Localising App Names for iOS and Android

Mon Aug 1 14:42:00 2016

How to localise your app name on iOS

The follow describes the localisation of the app To Do Today available for iOS and Android. It's completely free to download. Please take a look.

1. In Xcode, right click on your project and choose 'New File'.

2. Under OS X, choose 'Resource' and create a new file of type 'Strings File'.

3. Name your new file 'InfoPlist.strings'.

4. Select your file from the project hierarchy and click the 'Localise' to the right.

5. Select the language you wish to add from the dropdown and press the 'Localise' button. In this case we will be adding Japanese language support. You will see a tick mark next to the languages you add.

6. Press the small triangle icon found to the left of the file InfoPlist.strings. This will drill down and reveal the added localisation files.

7. In each file, insert the following, replace the app name for your localised string name.

English

    
    "CFBundleDisplayName" = "Today";
"CFBundleName" = "Today";

Japanese

    
    "CFBundleDisplayName" = "めもメモ";
"CFBundleName" = "めもメモ";
8. Build your project and test it out by changing the language used by the OS of the device.

How to localise your app name on Android

For Android, it's a little different.

1. Locate the folder called 'res' in your project. For Unity, this is most likely found in Plugins/Android/native_plugins_lib at the time of writing.

2. Once located, create a folder called 'values-xx', replacing the 'xx' with the two letter combination representing the language you wish to add. For Japanese we create the folder 'values-ja'. You will need to add a new folder for each language you wish to support.

3. Inside each folder, you will now need to create a file called 'strings.xml'. You should also create on inside the 'values' folder. This will be the default language file for your application.

4. In strings.xml, type the following markup, of course replacing the localised string name with the one for your app.

Japanese
     
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <resources>
        <string name="app_name">めもメモ</string>
    </resources>
    
    

5. Build your app and test by switching between the languages you've added. If you switch to a language you have not added, the default language added in values will be used.

That's it. Hope this helps. Happy localising!
