Electronic Toolbox data update 1.15 available

A new data update V 1.15 is available

This is just a small data update with the following content:

  • IP-Ratings added in the tables tool

The following ICs were added:

  • CC2570, CS2570 (ANT RF Network Processors)
  • DS18B20 (Programmable 1 – Wire Digital Thermometer)
  • UDN298x and ULN200x (8-channel drivers)

And finally:

  • Improved formula images throughout the whole app
  • Some corrections in the 40xx and 74xx IC section

Another data update and app update is already under development but I thought I should send already out an update with the above.

Thanks again for your support, help and suggestions.

Have a great weekend,

kind regards,

A few words about cracked versions of Electronic Toolbox – update

Update to „A few words about cracked versions of Electronic Toolbox“

As I concentrated on improving and extending Electronic Toolbox during the last weeks and months, I lost track about the number of cracked versions of ETB circulating on various platforms.

Last week, I found I should check and was quite surprised that again, various versions of my App are available for free again. Those versions have been downloaded and installed about hundred thousand times and the installation base of those cracked versions is higher than the installation base of the version from the AppStore.

I even found two cracked versions that were not just cracked but also contained some additional code. As far as I was able to see, this code accesses the address book and creates a lot of network traffic. Also, some iOS system files (etc/hosts and some others) are being modified. Very strange though.

I still can’t understand why people are not willing to pay a few bucks (the same amount they pay for a BigMac) for an app that is being supported and extended now over years whereas a BigMac just lasts for a few minutes.

Moreover, some of those people even asked for support and submitted change requests.

Have a great weekend,
