That App Is So Yesterday

Todays focus has been on finishing off one or two conditional compilation steps and adding in the code to perform the checking for available updates.

The back end for the update check is a small PHP based web application which does nothing more than send out the current version information for StrokePlay Pro.

Within the application itself, I’ve added code to check the pull the current version information from the application database and to retrieve the latest release version information from the PHP server application across and HTTP connection.

All of the update processing in StrokePlay Pro sits within some conditional compile directives which just completely removes the code from the Free Trial edition.

Testing locally is simple enough since the PHP server application is running on an Apache installation which runs on my Netgear ReadyNAS NV+ (a fantastic device).
