Hi, I'm having trouble getting to work a couple of MAX7219. I tested the circuit on a breadboard and it worked perfectly, then I soldered all the anodes and cathodes to the MAX7219's to a perfboard and tested them connecting the Data In, Load, Clock, 5+ and Gnd to the Arduino with alligator cables and worked fine but then I soldered them and nothing lights up. I've checked everything for an hour but all seems to be ok. I really have no idea what's gone wrong. The arduino is powering the circuit and the drivers are receiving the voltage they need.
This is the code I'm using to test the matrix. I'm using 2 drivers but for testing purposes I'm just trying to control one. It's pretty basic. #include <LedControl.h>
I don't know if it matters that I didn't use the capacitors though when testing on the breadboard it worked well without them. Do you have any suggestions where I should check the circuit? I think I just broke my brain or something trying to figure out what's wrong but I can't find anything. Thanks in advance.
I'm attaching a picture of the back of the circuit. Maybe it helps. This is the first time I've soldered so perhaps something is not soldered correctly. I just don't know. There's also the diagram I'm using from the Arduino page.
Hi, I want to control my project through an iPhone. I am thinking about using the following guide to do it. It says it's not confirmed its support for iOS 5 which I have but I think the guide hasn't been updated in a while.

I get a notification that dismisses itself very quickly at startup I can't read.
The code is:
Anyone know what's going wrong? I could compile successfully until I replaced the files in the library for the exact same files plus the keywords.txt file.
