Spooked! 2.3 Now Available!

Just in time for your Halloween party!

After dealing with some issues with iOS 9 and El Capitan, (see this post) I’m happy to announce an update to Spooked for iOS and macOS! Here’s what’s new:

  • Optimized for iOS 10 and macOS Sierra. Spooked was recoded to take advantage of iOS 10 and macOS 10.12.
  • Fixed visual glitches with user interface. A few ‘disappearing’ buttons are now fixed.
  • Fixed bug with lightning. Sometimes the lightning feature would crash Spooked. The lightning algorithms have been recoded, and the bug is no more.
  • Fixed visual glitches with Ghoul. The annoying ‘white box’ that would appear when the Ghoul began to speak no longer displays.
  • Fixed Mimic Mode. Mimic mode now functions correctly.
  • Improved photo scaling. The photos aspect ratio is preserved when scaling to fit the screen.
  • Improved full screen experience on macOS. Just click the little green circle on the window to enter/exit full screen mode.
  • Fixed audio on iPhone to reroute to external speaker.
  • Added Hologram Mode. To create a Pepper’s Ghost effect with a pyramid reflector.

Happy Halloween!


I apologize for neglecting this blog for so long. A lot has been going on since Apple introduced iOS 9, and OS X El Capitan.

I have been working with the awesome people over at on a couple of big projects. I am happy to say that I am one of the co-authors for their new book 2D iOS & tvOS Games by Tutorials. If you’re interested in how to make iOS and tvOS games, you should give it a look!

I’m also a new member of their online video tutorial team. My first series is on beginning native tvOS app development. I’ll post a link here when it becomes available.

And Speaking of tvOS, I’ll be porting several of my apps to the Apple TV very soon! I can’t wait to see Spooked on the big screen!

iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan

I am aware that there are some compatibility issues with most of my apps under Apple’s new operating systems. I will be releasing updates to address these issues very soon.

See my post in the Support Forum for more details.

Have a spooky, but safe Halloween!
