New App in the App Store

I've just released my first solo iOS app to the app store. Go get it! See the sidebar and the projects page for additional details.

Authenticated Libraries

I've added the ability to associate a library with a gmail (or OAuth) account, which is part of the App Engine API. These libraries will require that the user be logged in to view them.
I've added my own library in an authenticated and a demo version to demonstrate.

Multiperson Capabilities

I've added the ability for multiple people to access their libraries through the music app. A client app runs on their computer and hosts the actual library and the AppEngine site just redirects the requests for playlists, etc.

This resolves some of the issues with search, since the music library isn't in App Engine's DB

Note on Music Search

Search works now, but only for properly capitalized and complete search terms. It must be the full name of an album, artist, or song. In other words, to find all songs by Miike Snow, one must type that exactly. Typing "miike snow" or "Miike" would not return anything. This is because of some limitations in the the google app engine database, which oddly doesn't handle searches very well.

Regressions in the Music App

I'm migrating the music app to use a database on the backend. Previously it was just keeping all the information in memory which meant that it often needed to be reloaded, which was slow. I've got playlists working (mostly) but other things, like search, don't work anymore.

I just finished adding some code to allow for a basic blog on the homepage. I'll post updates to the site here.
