HAMMessanger

The HAMMessanger has been around for a little time now, but why is an iOS version missing?

Seriously, first announced at the Hamradio 2018, the HAMMessanger has since been updated to Version 2. And while I really like the idea of an Messager for Amateurradio, going unencrypted over the Hamnet. There was something that bugged me. As a member of the ÖVSV (Austrias Amateurradio club). I was at the Hamradio since 2013 (Well, I wasn't a member at that time but certainly the rest of my family).

HAMMessanger, but only for Windows and Android

As the HAMMessanger were announced 2018, I was really looking forward to the fact that they are thinking of not just Windows. But only an Android version besides the Windows version was lame. I talked with some of the guys and they said that they patch me up with all the informations that I need. Nothing happened, but time has passed and version 2 of the HAMMessanger were announced at HamRadio 2019. GREAT! Still no iOS version.

I asked again. This time with success.

Infact they didn't even wait for a week. They patched me up with enough information on the second day or something.

Updates

So I decided that I'm gonna mention all the updates for people who are waiting for it (In fact I got an E-Mail that someone in Portugal is interested in it).

Update: July 6th, 2019

Developement began, finally. We are getting somewhere!

Update: September 23rd, 2019: I don't just think it, I'm actually online.

I restructered parts of the code in order to make the code less ugly. In the meantime I managed to send enough data so the system marks me as online! Good!

Update: September 26th, 2019: I'm able to receive messages too.

I managed to receive messages from the system. Which is great. I also managed to set to prepare my app for the new dark mode added in iOS 13!

Update: October 16th, 2019: I managed to send broadcast messages!

With broadcast messages working and more importantly, me know how they work. I am hitting a turning point. I need to take a look into the design and prepare that for more functionallity. Messages got sent and were received on the Windows version

Update: October 31st, 2019: Design for the "Online" Section is done.

And of course, a screenshot is included! The design. Normally nothing that I like to do but that doesn't look half bad. (Darkmode)
