iPad Pop overs

The iPad interface started off as a resized iPhone one. While it has since  been heavily modified  to take advantage of the new interface elements, I wasn’t using popovers until now.  I am currently looking at additional parts of the UI where a popover might be more be more appropriate. Feel free to make suggestions.

Shiny new icons

In my effort to make Monal look better, I recently stumbled upon the Glyphish free icon set for mobile devices. I now know where most apps get their tabbar and toolbar icons from. The next release will switch from the KDE Crystal theme I’ve used since the beginning to the much more iOS appropriate Glyphish theme.

 

Welcome to the new site

The blogspot blog the served as the home for Monal will continue to exist for historical reasons and also because the article I wrote about the security weaknesses of Facebook chats XMPP implementation still draws a lot of traffic.

Monal has grown significantly since it’s release. I think this site will better serve the needs of the everyone using it.  In particular, I think the help section will answer the most common questions.
