What is In-app
In-app purchase (IAP) is a convenient way for
developers to offer customers additional content or consumables, for
purchase from within an app. We've set up Trip Boss this way to allow
for combining mulitple travel apps into one complete app so they can
share information and store all trip data in one place. Our
customers can customize the app, adding only content they need or want.
Creative Algorithms is working to add many other "module" options for
Trip Boss. We recently released our first module, Itineraries.
How does it work?
Simply visit the "Store" from within Trip Boss. Our store has a vending
machine design. Tap on an icon to find out more information. A link is
also available to our website for more info and screenshots. You will
see a price button for buying the module, just like in the main
When you are ready to buy, tap on the price. You will be prompted to
confirm, then to enter your iTunes password, just like the
AppStore. Apple receives a message from the app and the purchase
is made, using your iTunes account (all info stays on Apple's servers).
Apple sends the app a message that the purchase was complete and the
module is then activated. You will see the new icons on the main Trip
Purchased modules' main icons will appear at
the bottom of the vending machine.
In-app purchase is good across all iOS
devices on your account, just like the apps. Simply tap "Restore
Modules" to install already purchased modules onto your other devices.
from Itinerary Entries
Did you know you, after adding Itineraries, you can create an expense,
right from an itinerary entry?
Enter your flight into your itinerary, tap the
forward arrow button on the toolbar to add the cost of your
tickets. It's just that easy!

Pro Recipe Cards for iPad supports simple import through copy/paste. If
you are browsing for
recipes on the internet in Safari on iPad, simply highlight the
complete recipe text and copy it. Launch Serving Sizer Recipe
Cards and start a new recipe. Tap on the Directions area and paste the
text into the card. If you don't need to resize the recipe right away,
you can leave the ingredients list right in directions and start
the full screen Cooking Mode. When you are ready to resize the
recipe, read the ingredients from the directions and enter them using
our ingredient entry method and delete their text from
directions. You can also use copy/paste from emails or any
documents on the iPad.
We use Serving Sizer Pro Recipe Cards on a daily basis for our own
cooking. We have lots of ideas for improvements (including
improved import) and are making plans for continued updates to all the
Serving Sizer apps. Please feel free to contact us with
your suggestions--feedback always helps us to improve our products!
