Apps not Opening on iPhone 4

Filed under Uncategorized
Tagged as , ,

I upgraded the software on my iPhone 4 recently which appeared to work as expected.  When I tried using any of the Applications installed on the phone after the update, I found that the apps were not opening.  I tried opening a number of the apps, but the same issue was happening with all of them, where they would start opening, but then close straight away, returning to the home screen.

I did a bit of a search, and found the following article which explained a similar issue and a solution that fixed the problem with my Apps not opening on iPhone 4.

iPhone 4 Apps Not Opening (Closing Straight Away)

The solution that fixed this problem allowing apps to open again was to download a new App from the store.  I selected a free app to dowload, which worked fine.  Once it had installed, all other apps were then opening without closing straight away.

Tutorial: Create a Custom Atom and RSS Feed using Php

Filed under Php
Tagged as , ,

I found a tutorial explaining how to create custom feeds for your website with Php.  The tutorial walks though the process of building a feed in step by step instructions.  Once created, the feed can be displayed from your website in multiple formats, including Atom 1.0, RSS 2.0 and RSS 1.0.

Tutorial to Create a Custom Atom and RSS Feed using Php

A free class library is utilized to create the feed, which can be up and running on your site in minutes. Links to download the class are also provided as part of the tutorial.

Main Steps:

  • Create a new (empty) feed using the free class
  • Associate information with the feed channel (Optional)
  • Add Items to the feed
  • Output the feed in on of the supported formats

You only need to configure the custom feed once regardless of the output format.  This allows users to select their preferred format which significantly increases compatibility with feed readers.  Formats as old as RSS 0.91 are also supported, although the amount of meta information that can be associated with the feed and specific items is limited.  When you have included information that is not supported by a particular format, it is ignored when producing the XML output to ensure that the feed structure is valid.

Other useful functionality provided by the class includes the ability to customize the supported formats to suit your needs.
