I think I wrote the first version of Pic-a-POD in 2003 and have been updating and maintaining it ever since, but the time has come to shut it down.
Now that most of my Mac apps have been updated to support macOS Mojave’s dark mode, it was time to turn my attention to this web site.
With the release of macOS Mojave on 24th September 2018, I have started updating my Mac apps, mainly to enable support for dark mode if appropriate.

Its been a long time since the last update to Time In Words for iOS but after prompting by Apple (update or we will remove it from the App Store), I finally did it. I was never really happy with the last design of Time in Words for iOS, particularly for the iPad, so this was a good opportunity to do a complete re-design, bringing the app more into alignment with its Mac counterpart. And it got a new name to match its new direction and is now called World Time in Words.
TL;DR: I don’t track you either on my web site or through my apps. If you want to contact me, please do so but I will not initiate any contacts.
