Site migrated from PicoCMS to PhileCMS

Date: 23rd Jul 2014

English:

I loved PicoCMS but had some problems in finding out how to make the Dev section and the News section being independent Blogs so now this site is running under PhileCMS where the "Templates" Function is more sofisticated (PhileCMS is a fork from PicoCMS)

New Development Section

Date: 23rd Jul 2014

English:

I have just created a new Development section called "Dev" where I will post problems I encounter when developing.

Let there be freedom

Date: 1st Aug 2013

English:

I am migrating all the development of the site to free software. So for some time no new updates will happen in the front but at the background. The first step will be to open source Picasutra so that everybody on the world can modify the source code and participate in the development. Also the site will be created with free software, so changes will happen.

Español:

Estamos migrando todos los sistemas a software libre porque me he cansado de las restricciones absurdas de control de Apple. No puedo mas, cada año hay que adaptarse a los cambios repentinos de Cupertino. En los próximos meses simplemente dedicaré el tiempo a migrar todo a software libre para ser una persona libre.

New Film Section

Date: 30th Jan 2013

This week we move forward integrating a new section called Film dedicated to short films shot on rollerblades and skates. A disfrutar!

New DJ Section

Date: 11th Feb 2012

This week I have opened a new Section on this website called "DJ". This is because I love music and mixing it. I do that since I was 18, but stopped it since I am 25. In these years I have had the chance to listen to new styles of music, and my desire is to mix all of the music types that I like in 45 minute sets. Now this will happen in the next weeks when I am done with sorting out the good music.

Date: 5th Oct 2011

Now I would like to thank Carolina who did a very good job with her graphics in the first version of Picasutra, without her help Picasutra 1.0 would never have existed.

Picasutra on the iPad

Date: 4th Apr 2010

Today I went to San Antonio (from Madrid through Monterrey) to buy the iPad and try our Kamasutra. Because one picture is more valuable than 1000 words, take a look at the following pictures of the event:

The Apple Store in San Antonio still closed:

Thank you

Date: 2nd Apr 2010

I would like to thank to the following people and institutions that contributed that our project is now reality:

  • First of all I would like to thank my parents for their support, I appreciate a lot to not going nuts when I told them I would program a Kamasutra.
  • Pikatxu for doing so nice Graphics! Without her help this would be a old fashioned way Kamasutra!
  • Evil Ely and her friends Mr. Pikos and Lokotron for writing the original text's. Without them the originality of this work would not be possible in this short time.
  • I would like to thank my friends Mayte and Dani for their early support last year for not giving up in learning to write iPhone Code .
  • Mr. Rudig for tips related to doing projects.
  • Kim K. for his marketing tips.

And the following websites gave us a lot of information that was really helpful:

Picasutra is different

Date: 1st Apr 2010

The reason why we programmed Picasutra is because we have seen in the market a lot of Kamasutra Apps but all fail in one thing: They do not encourage your imagination. All the Kamasutra's that we found do the same thing: They show you a explicit image with a objective text description.

We want to inspire your imagination, we want that you feel free when having fun with you partner. We don't want to give you a manual with all the positions, we only want to give you a brief introduction. We think that you are responsible to use your imagination, and that's why our images and our text descriptions lets all open-minded.

In the near future, if our first version of the Kamasutra is successful then we have some nice surprises for you, free downloadable for our first customers.

RIP Steve Jobs

Date: 6th Oct 2011

Rest in Peace Steve, you gave us a lot. We will always remember you and thank you for making the technology more fun!

RIP Steve Jobs

Pica First Day

Date: 10th Feb 2010

Today my partner and I decided to create Pica Creations. It was on this day, Monday the first February of 2010 that I told her that I have a lot of projects in mind in an original-artistic-minded way. She told me that she also had a lot of ideas that she would like to make reality. So we decided to join our forces to begin creating new original projects together.

Later that day I asked her If she would be interested in programming a Kamasutra for the iPhone (later when I read that the iPad was coming we decided to concentrate all our energy to port it to that device). She immediately answered positively because she always liked the Indian Culture. I also told her that the reason of creating a Kamasutra for the iPhone is because some years ago, when I had my Palm 501, the application that I most liked (and that other people always downloaded in these first PDA-Days) was the Palmsutra. I always said in these days that when I had free time and when I would have finished my studies I would like to port the Palmsutra for other devices.

So the following day we started to search new information about the Kamasutra and thought about how we could be different to all the others, because right now a lot of Kamasutras where out there in the iTunes Store. We decided that we would create a minimalistic open minded Kamasutra without using the forbidden words !

In the same afternoon we decided the name Pica Creations. That is because if you put together the first characters of our names it gives you PICA.
