I was browsing the Cocoa Duel site (nice holiday apps for charity) and I found a mention of Hubert (the app that Austin Sarner has been developing).  Some points he makes are as follows:

"There are still a handful of issues with tracking windows (occasionally Hubert will find himself stuck on a window that isn't actually visible), but hey you can always just pretend he can fly. Remember, Hubert can do anything so it's not too much of a stretch."
and
"I've worked on quite a few things over the past 3 or 4 years, most notably some incredibly non controversial apps like Disco and AppZapper. The app I'm working on for this involves a character you might have heard of, and it's going pretty well."

Let's all speculate together...

hmm...

Umm, yeah, I did...Nobody really knew who was developing "Hubert" (we weren't even sure it was an app) and the hint that was thrown in ("Hubert can do anything") is something to point out.

No, no, no. iSled has absolutely nothing to do with Monkey Lover. Look at the movie: you'll see they're two different things.

iSled was just an app that Austin quickly developed for Cocoa Duel, which is an effort to raise money for charities.

haha this probably isn't a mini-heist, just a little bit of information of what the expect from Hubert.

and

@Query: I never mentioned that iSled and Hubert are related (minus the fact that Hubert is behind the sled smile);  He just threw some info about Hubert's app while describing iSled wink

Please don't be offended by this, because I don't know shit about coding and programming, but the apps at cocoaduel are very half-assed. Austin's didn't even have an icon.  I understand that they only had a few days but why is it worth donating to charity?

The answer to this question has nothing to do with the quality of those apps.

Just pretend I have something witty here.

Hubert is the monkey on the sled in ISled! I can't believe you didn't notice that.

by the way hubert is an app in the making: http://tristan.hume.ca/pics/snaps.php
I saw it on the ISled demo video(hint: look in the dock when austin is opening ISled). The app is named "Monkey Lover".

ISled demo video if you think i photoshoped it: http://austinsarner.com/ISled.mp4

Hubert lives on!

That about repeats everything that we have covered (or knew) in this thread.  We're just speculating about the app "Monkey Lover" which is connected to Hubert apparently.  We're not concerned about iSled.
