Download Mine-1-1 from the iPhone App Store

Mine-1-1

Mine-1-1 is a location enabled application. It is designed to obtain the user's current location and then generate an email and/SMS message to a predetermined list of recipients. See the App Store Description for more information on its purpose and use.

Technology:

  • Core Location services for user location determination and retrieval of longitude and latitude coordinates.
  • Offers the ability to "track" the user's location and send the messages on a user-determined interval even while the phone's screen is in sleep mode.
  • Database storage of user preferences and other information using apple's latest Core Data technology in iPhone OS 3.
  • Multi-Lingual support. Currently available in English and German.
  • Supports smooth upgrade to new versions with preservation of all user data.
  • Web-based Contact form as well as User Guide. This allows updates to the user guide/contact form without the need of submitting a new application update to Apple and going through the review process.
  • Web-based Email generation. This allows ZERO email configuration on the part of the user in setting up the App (The user will not have to know their email account information, or even have to have one, in order to use the application.). In addition the user has the option of fully editing the message prior to delivery using an existing email account currently set up on the phone.

 

Download Yo Barkeep from the iPhone App Store

Yo... Barkeep!

Yo... Barkeep! was conceived while working on another project one day. I saw a TV commercial of a guy typing a message on his phone, in a crowded bar of course, and then holding the phone up to get the bartender's attention. I thought "hey that would be easy"! But of course I had to make it better! After reading reviews of similar Apps in the App Store, I added what I thought the users would like. This was the first App I published under my own name (although it was the 4th or 5th I had completed).

Technology:

  • Available in both free (ad-supported - integrated with Greystripe's platform) and paid versions.
  • Database storage of user preferences and other information using Apple's latest Core Data technology in iPhone OS 3.
  • Integrates HTML and CSS (cascading style sheets) for displaying the messages allowing easy modification of fonts, colors, etc.
  • Web-based Contact form as well as User Guide. This allows updates to the user guide/contact form without the need of submitting a new application update to Apple and going through the review process.

iPhone Templates

Are you a budding iPhone developer? Are you a corporate IT person recently tasked with creating an iPhone app for your company? You know programming and maybe you have figured out how to jump through Apple's hoops to get an application actually running on the phone, but you have discovered that Apple's sample code and templates leave a LOT to be desired (You really like the Utility App template but you need it to work with Core Data and persist your data between screens seamlessly? How do I post data to our existing web site? How do I not destroy my user's data every time I submit an update?).

How much is your time worth?

Save yourself (and your company) time and money by using a template based on my experience. These are fully functional templates geared to actually being usable in real world scenarios. They are also fully documented/commented so that you will understand what is going on inside the code.

  • Core Data
  • Location Services
  • Multiple Language Ready
  • Communicating with existing web sites
  • User Settings persistence
  • Upgrade data persistence

These are still being finalized by me as time permits. (Clients always come first) If you have a specific need please feel free to contact me.
