I have stumbled across a quite nice introductory course on iphone programming on iTunesU. Its from the university of Utah and they got a nice video podcast along with slides and some sample code. Definitely a good way to start developing for the iPhone.
Another course can be found at
However, I havent had time to check that one out yet.
If you are an audiobook fan like I am, then you probably often wondered how to create nice audiobooks with chapters and all. I am such a guy and have been using Audiobook Maker for a while since its open source and free. However, it has a few shortcomings that made me want some modifications. Unfortunately, it seems that the author has stopped maintaining the app and thus I went to work and made the changes I needed.
- added warning when file > 350MB or > 14h since usually then ChapterTool bombs out
- added support to process m4a and mp4 files (however, no bitrate transcoding yet)
- fixed issues with files containing special characters like spaces, quotes, …
I will ask the developer to integrate the changes, if not, I will post the sources here.
A big thanks to the guys at
which tools I have used in order to process mp4 files.
