Updated ABC rage app in the Australian app store

It's been a great pleasure working with the ABC TV rage team, a wonderful graphic designer and producers to do an update of the popular rage app.

The design is pretty wild but from a software developer's perspective I've focussed on minimising internet traffic by doing HEAD requests and only pulling down playlist data, artist images and bios as required.

Playlists are cached in a local core data store so that opening the app is fast and memory use is minimised.

It's amazing that this TV show has been on air since 1987.

Please check out the app and if you like it, give us a rating and review. (If you don't like it, I hope you'll contact us).
