Just to keep people informed. I fixed up and added some improvements to the app:
  • Displays the main relay
  • Toggles the relay status for each port
  • Added Feeding Mode, Water Change Mode and Exit Mode buttons at the bottom
  • Fixed up the display issue/artifacts with the icon
  • Changed the black/carbon background to white
I have not released it to the app store yet because I do not have my iPad with me (side note: in order to release an app to the app store, it must be compiled/built on an actual device and not just on the computer). When I get home tonight, I will try to get it submitted to the store for updating.

Also, please bear in mind, the app will be changing its appearance over time. This one long screen layout is only temporary in order to get the app out and released. The app will eventually allow for tab switching and swiping screens much like with the Android app. That functionality is being worked on but like I've said before, requires learning and some time. Anyways, hopefully this will get things functioning better for you guys.

Here are 2 screenshots of the app. They are taken on a 3.5" device (so the larger devices will display more on the screen at once). This one just displays the status.

This one shows the relay status. When the relays are in the overridden state, the light blue triangle with the exclamation point is displayed indicating that the port is overridden. To remove the override status, just tap on that blue triangle and it will reset the port.

I will update the original post with the status once I get it submitted to the app store for update.

it will be changing as well... I'm thinking of shifting from using storyboards to programmatically creating the interface to get it to do what I want.

Programmatically creating the interface would be much better for long term maintenance and enhancements.

yeah, that's what I was thinking as well. I have already started working on it and learning how to do it.

Newest version just release! It's live. Update your apps folks and now be able to control your main relay plus the couple modes.
