The ramblings of a developer

WeaverPix 3 a.k.a The tale of this coffee addicted developers quest for brilliant slideshows without frustrating the h*ll out of the user

In 2009, my coffee hardened veins and I produced WeaverPix v1.0. The very firstslideshow plugin that ran without Adobe Flash.This meant that, unlike the built in Slideshow, WeaverPix ran on the (then) new iPhones!It was welcomed in the RapidWeaver community with open arms and empty mugs. Proud? Yes. Satisfied? Never! In my caffeine rage of perfection, I shipped v2 aas a free upgrade a mere 6 months later. Version 2 featured an entirely new drag and dropUI that made managing Photos even easier. Also included in version 2 was support for variousPhoto sharing services such as Flickr and Picasa. Never before this easy to turn photos intostunning slideshows.

For over 2 years I continued to pour cup after cup into maintaining and improvingv2. Then, on one faithful day last Fall, I quit my job and began working full time onRapidWeaver related goodies.

Since leaving my job I have made friends with the indigenous Starbucks population and now Iam set to unveil WeaverPix v3! Version 3 takes the product you already own to a whole newlevel and it could be yours for free!
