The future of the project.

Apple banned the further use of the name EVEUniverse. I am taking one last attempt. If Apple does not change its position, i would have to change the name of the application. Jim Nastik suggested rename EVEUniverse to New Eden Neocom.
I'm not a designer, so that in this case, i need help designing a logo and application icon 512x512.
P.S. Project is not dead, just have a small problems with the publisher.

  2. Dude, that's a shame. Don't loose heart though, seriously the best and most professional Eve App. Shopping trips with hf just fly by when I can spend the time fitting ships!! Good work, have you contacted CCP, maybe they'd allow the use of the Eve logo?

  3. I'd love to try it, but every time I try to load an API key I keep getting "(NSXMLParserErrorDomain error 65.)".

    Any help would be appreciated (would happily help donate to project).

    1. This error occurs if the server returns the answer is not in XML format.
      The easiest way is to check - is open the following URL
      https://api.eveonline.com/account/Characters.xml.aspx?keyID=your_key_id&vCode=your_vcode
      Simply insert your keyID and vCode.

  4. I've been a fan of this app for year, now. Annoying that Apple is causing problems, now.

    As for that error Anonymous mentioned above, I suddenly started getting it, too, just in the last day or so. I'm assuming CCP changed the API so that your parsing is now broken. But this means that getting an update out that Apple will actually accept has become a critical issue.

  9. Hey, I'm a RL designer and HUGE fan of your app. I would love to help out with designing your app icons and starting screens. Would you like me to just send you suggestions, or do you want to give a more specific brief?

  10. Even if your openning screen were a hand-crayoned smiley face, this would still be a great app!

  12. Спасибо Артем, за то что делаешь такое великолепное приложение для EVE online, из всех что есть оно лучшее.
    Из пожеланий, хотелось бы увидеть в приложении возможность переключения языка, анимированную карту, джамп планер, а так же если это возможно, реализовать почту аналогично тому как она реализована на EVE Gate, то есть с возможностью не только читать но и писать письма.
    По поводу лого и заставки, я конечно не дизайнер, но порывшись в запасниках картинок подобрал несколько картинок которые после небольшой доработки, на мой взгляд подойдут:

    http://postimage.org/image/aj5tr0ddf/

    p.s. Желаю успехов в разработке приложения!

  13. "Neocom" is not used anywhere in the app store. Why not just shorten the above suggestion to that?

    ReplyDelete
  14. The title seems a bit long, why not just "The Neocom?" as for the logo, that's up to someone else. :)

    Thank you or all the effort you've been putting into this!

  15. BTW, if you change the app name, would current users update or have to download the new app?

  17. Apple is notorious for causing problems. I once worked with a developer who was rejected by apple because they developed a piece of hardware that apple wanted rights to. Apple eventually won the case and sold the idea to another that they were involved with. Don't be surprised if you get the runaround more often than you'd like.

  21. If neocon fails for whatever reason I'd suggest the tongue-in-cheek approach:call the app "Adam". Get it? Eve? Adam? .... I'll show myself out.
