MeCards Comes To QrCode

My Qr Code generating application QrCode has been updated to version 1.05

New in this version is the ability to generate a MeCard which when scanned should be able to added to an address book.

At the moment I have only implemented Name, Address and phone number, as BASIC’s 256 character limitation causes problems when having more fields, but I am looking at ways around this.

Bug Fix To MPdata+

My application for displaying information about your UK Member of Parliament MPdata+ has been updated to version 1.17

This update is to fix a couple of bugs relating to new MPs who have yet to take part in Parliament, the first bug fix was that the maiden speech button would cause a crash if they had yet to make their first speech in Parliament. The other bug fix was to do with the bedates window in which it showed buttons that did nothing if they had made less than 4 debates and or written questions.
