The Cage Cricket application is my first cross-platform mobile application built using Trigger.io and Parse, and works on iOS and Android.
My first app at Wonga.com was the Hearts FC Football App, to promote Hearts FC getting to the final of the Scottish Cup Final against Hibernian FC (Hibs).
I created a second Facebook app for the Financial Times that scrapes a number of RSS feeds to bring in editorial content into Facebook. The app uses XML for flat-file storage and caching to speed up loading.
The LOVEFiLM Android Application was my first project as Development Manager, responsible for a team of four.
I created a simple application for the Financial Times Facebook Fan Page, using PHP and a XML flat-file store. The application had a CMS backend to allow an administrator to customise the images, URLs and text for each of the boxes (up to 6 supported).
The Facebook API lets you post to Pages you administrate via the API. With the release of Graph API v2.x and the new Facebook PHP SDK v4.0.x, I’m updating my old tutorial to show how to achieve the same functionality using the newer Graph API and PHP SDK.
Facebook has updated the Graph API to version v2.1, making significant changes to how some of the API calls work while deprecating other features. The current Facebook PHP SDK stable version is still v4.0.9 and uses Graph API v2.0, but PHP SDK v4.1 will eventually make use of Graph API v2.1.
If you’re like me in reusing entire application code bases to create new apps, you will run into this issue often: deleting .svn or .git directories from old applications so you can commit them to a new repository. These command lines will help you out.
Parse has released an official PHP SDK, and as usual it’s not very well documented. I’ve created this handy tutorial to help you get started.
This tutorial covers how to create a basic version of TestFlight that works with both iOS and Android. It will allow you to distribute your development / debug apps to clients, beta-testers or users easily.
