  • Sidecar13 - for the little guys

    I'm releasing Sidecar13 for Simplify today. It's a smaller version of the original Sidecar jacket, which was designed for my 27" display. I failed to make the original scale on its own, so I had to release this as a separate jacket. It has all of the features and skins of the original, just scaled to fit on my 13" MacBook Air.…

  • Sidecar 2.1 adds positioning

    This is a quick update to Sidecar (2.1) that re-enables dragging so you can get it moved over to a second monitor. Unfortunately I can't set a default point on a secondary monitor, so you'll most likely have to reposition it on every launch. It's a start, though. I'll work to come up with a solution for that.…

  • Sidecar 2.0

    Simplify 2.7 is out and Sidecar has updated to make use of the new API. The biggest improvement you'll notice is that background clicks are now captured perfectly, so clicking anywhere on Sidecar will start and stop your music properly on the first click. Double-clicking advances the track, and Command-clicking seeks to a position in the song based on where you click in the vertical progress meter.…

  • Sidecar 1.5

    Ok, this will be the last update to Sidecar for a little while (no promises). 1.5 seems like a nice number to hold at while I work on some other projects. I've put enough hours into a project with a very limited audience to feel mildly guilty, but I'm having a lot of fun with this. Hey, I respect your life choices.…

  • Sidecar 1.4

    Sidecar 1.4 is up. I really should save these changes up and make larger releases, but this is fun. I'm playing a little more with the controls and color variations, so this does add some fun stuff.…

  • Sidecar 1.3, now in Technicolor

    A quick one... Sidecar 1.3 now comes in four variations: Blue (original), green, black and white. Just for fun, here's a video. Download the update after the stunning performance.…

  • Sidecar 1.2

    It turns out I like Sidecar (my new jacket for Simplify) enough to keep playing with it a little. I present version 1.2 for your review.…

  • Who loves music and 27-inch monitors?

    I had a little fun this morning making a very large theme for the Simplify music controller. I wanted something that made use of the background screen real estate on my Thunderbolt display. "Sidecar" is what I came up with... keep in mind it was pretty early in the morning. Naming things before 6am is not my strong point.…
