Slide Puzzle Application Update

The slide puzzle application is nearly complete, but progress has been slow due to various other projects and responsibilities that hit along with summer this year.

I need to add a few more features for capturing and saving images to use as the puzzle image, but I will start writing up the basics soon. For this application, we’re going to start with a basic OpenGL ES Application template, create the code to manage the slider puzzle, and then add the code to handle image selection and capture on top of it.

We’ll be doing a lot more work in the graphical designer for this project, so there will be a lot more steps involved in setting up and managing our interface. More steps means more pictures, which means larger chapters and a longer tutorial! Although the going will be slow over the summer here, I’ll try to get as much out over the next several weeks as I can.

    Thanks, JoshM! I really want to finish this one too, it got a lot bigger than I had anticipated. I have a first pass of the application nearly complete, then I’ll need to reconstruct the app so I can put together the individual chapters of the tutorial. It’s been slow going because the summer has been so busy. Hopefully, I can get some content out in the next few weeks.
