HipStyles, the iPhone to app that finds your HipstaPrints photos with ease, has been updated to version 1.0.3, and is available on the App Store.
We’ve added the ability to like photos on Instagram straight from inside the app. Just double-tap the photo in the detail screen, or tap once on the cute little heart icon on the right side of the photo (below the tiny Instagram camera logo).
Double-tap an Instagram photo to “like” it.
Please note that if you are updating, you need to sign out of Instagram from the Settings screen, and then log back in to like photos. (Technical explanation: this is because we had to change the scope of the Instagram authentication in v1.0.3 to include the “likes” capability.) Sorry about any inconvenience with that.
Version 1.0.3 also fixes an issue with memory usage when searching for HipstaPrints photos. If you have trouble, see the help page or contact us (go to the Settings screen and select “Send feedback”).
We would appreciate if you told your Hipstamatic-using friends about HipStyles, and rated the app in the App Store. Thanks for purchasing HipStyles, and have fun searching for great fresh sample prints on Instagram, or looking for HipstaPrints on your phone that you shot with an awesome combo.
Les Nombres, the little app that wants to teach you elementary French numbers, has been updated to version 1.5, and is now available on the App Store. The update is free to existing customers.
You are presented with a randomly chosen French number from zero to 100, in writing, and given three alternatives to choose from. You can listen to the number by tapping the Listen button. To get another number, tap Another.
Les Nombres teaches you elementary French numbers.
Version 1.5 introduces a new scoring system: for every right answer you gain a point – but if you answer wrong, you lose a point. You can also get the next number without answering, but then you also lose a point! (Until you have zero points.)
If you have reached a personal high score, you can share it with everyone on Facebook or Twitter.
Les Nombres is available in English, French, Finnish and Swedish. The Windows Phone version of Les Nombres is available on the Windows Phone Marketplace. The Android version is in the works.
We are pleased to announce that HipStyles version 1.0.2 is now available on the App Store! The update is free to existing customers.

Many of you know already that we make a little app called Les Nombres for iPhone and Windows Phone to help you learn French numbers. It was originally created in late 2010 for the iPhone, to help the author who was learning French for the first time. The realization that an algorithmic approach would work in generating textual representations of numbers in French led to a simple but delightful iPhone application. Since its initial publication in the App Store as a free, ad-supported app it has been downloaded a few thousand times.
With version 1.2 the name of the application was changed to a more suitable “Les Nombres”, with the numbers being read by a native French speaker. This update sparked most of those people who had originally downloaded the app to update it to the latest version. Starting with version 1.3 the app costs US $ .99 (0.79 €)—and stay tuned for a nice little update later this year. (EDIT: the update is now available)
We thought it would be interesting to take a closer look at where the app was being downloaded from. The iTunes Connect report data from between late April and mid-July 2012 was used as the basis of this chart (select it to view full-size).
Just a quick service announcement: all systems are running smoothly now, after a period of administrative shuffling.
In February this year Conifer Productions transformed from a sole proprietorship into the Finnish equivalent of a limited liability company (LLC), or the “osakeyhtiö” (Oy). Technically this is not quite a transformation, because according to the Finnish business law the sole proprietorship must be dissolved and a new company established. The trade registry will contain a note about the new company continuing the business of the sole proprietorship, but the two are separate legal entities, with different Finnish business IDs, taxation, bookkeeping etc.
Version 1.3 of the application now costs US $0.99 (EUR 0.79 or equivalent), but it works the same as the previous version. So, if you already have version 1.2, there is no need to buy this version now. However, if you do buy it now, you will get a free update to the next major release of the application.
In other news, Binary Response Unit (B.R.U.) for iOS has been retired. We sincerely thank this little unit for the services rendered, but these were not the droids we were looking for.
