While developing the latest version of Emanata Comics for iOS, we needed a way to handle authentication and posting to Tumblr from iOS devices. We decided to build this functionality separate from our application and link it into the app as a Framework (albeit a statically linked framework). This decision has made the code we wrote for Emanata Comics to share with Tumblr modular enough that we have open sourced the library, and the code for the library is available on Emanata’s GitHub page.
For now, the framework only supports authentication, retrieving user information and posting pictures since these are the API calls we currently utilize in the Emanata Comics application, but we intend to expand it as needed and are happy to review any pull requests sent our way. Take a look and let us know if you find this framework useful at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are very happy to announce the beta release of Emanata Comics for Android. The App is available -now- in Google Play. Download it for free here.
Emanata Comics for the Android platform works across a wide range of Android tablets and smartphones running Android 2.2 Froyo and above.
This is a beta release and there’s no In-App Purchase at the moment.
We would love to hear what you think. Please send us a note at email@example.com.
We will be demoing Emanata Comics on Tuesday, 12/11 at APPNATION IV. Stop by Pod F4 from 10.30A to 5.15P to say hi!
Check out this nice profile CBR wrote about Emanata.
With all that’s been happening around the office lately, we neglected to mention how much we enjoyed our time at APE 2012. It was great to meet so many of you in person. We would love to meet more of our users and artists. Which events would you like to see us at? We have a list of possibilities, but we would love to know which conventions are your favorites.
So, what’s been going on with us? We just updated to version 2.1.1! Get your update in the App Store for an even better reading experience on your iPhone / iPad Mini. We also added a new feature for our artists — adjustable preview for paid content. Previously, only 3 pages of a paid story could be previewed by a reader. Now with v.2.1.1, the artist can choose to share as much of the paid story as he or she likes for free.
We’d also like to give major thanks to the following artists for recently joining the Emanata Community: Aaron Whitaker, Erin Mehlos, James Stanton, Brittany Langlois, Emma T. Capps, Thomas Hunter, Jeanette Langmead, Andrew James Christensen, Walter De Leon, Jinru Ong, Richard Dansci, Jon Garza, Angeliki Salamaliki, Mathilde Tollec, Sandra González, Pat Barrett, Alex Murray-Clark, Patt Kelley, Annie Stoll, Sam Sharpe, Kristopher White, Vera Greentea, Nicholas Doan, Doctor Popular, Alfie Gallagher, Matt Sheean, Bob Flynn, Devin Kraft, Erik Taylor, and Jerel Dye.
We love their work, and know that you do too.
