Buckeye Sports Reader Makes iTunes “What’s Hot” List

Not sure how or why or for how long, but Buckeye Sports Reader has made the “What’s Hot” list in the iTunes Sports App section.  It was a fluke that I even checked it, but there it was.  I had to take a screen capture to … well… capture the moment:

Not sure what, if anything, this will do to sales.


Buckeye Sports Reader 1.4 in app store

Buckeye Sports Reader version 1.4 got approved today.  Not a big update, but it has a couple of features that I use a lot:

  • New “Quick View” option under the message board login menu.  This strips out a lot to the non-vital message baord info, and makes the font size easier to read.
  • Added a couple of blogs under the “News & Blogs” section

This should also mean that version 1.2.1 of iQueue should be in the store soon (it was submitted one day later)


Some Updates (Buckeye Sports Reader 1.1)

Thanks to one of the few comments I have received on iTunes, I realized that I made a little boo-boo in the “Recruits” section of the app.  After some help from the nice folks at, I was able to recreate and fix the crash.  A little annoying since it worked fine during my debug, just not out of the App store.  Fortunately, the update only took a day to be approved by Apple and the database of recruits form the past 8 years is now working.

In theory, I was going to add some posts between when I started this process and when my first app got accepted into the store.

It didn’t work out that way.

The hardest part about app development seems to be coming up with an idea that 10,000 other people haven’t come up with already.  I certainly had plenty of ideas, and people providing me with their own thoughts.  However, they were either already done, or too technically challenging for my first try.

I had thought about doing something related to Ohio State football.  The initial idea was an Ohio State Football Record Book app.  Straight forward, but not too exciting.  I had also coded up a “Days Since Ohio State lost to Michigan” app to tease some of my wolverine friends, however, I didn’t think it was worth more than a free app, and I didn’t have it ready in time for the big game.

The winning idea came from a message board ( that I frequent (frequent = multiple times a day).  The suggestion (to paraphrase) was to make an app to read the message boards and other OSU info on the site more iPhone friendly.

Long story short… here’s the link to the app:

I use it to read message boards and news everyday, so if nothing else, I like it.
