An updated version of the Scan2Web (v1.1) was just released today to the App store. Some minor tweaks to enhance the usability. If anyone has an iPhone an is interested in testing this app contact me by clicking here.
Working on an iPad version of this app. Any suggestions for improvement is always welcome.
For those of us just learning or would like a simpler way to create forms this tool is great! Drag and drop what you need in the order you need. Edit the attributes and view the code. I have already used it a couple times and it has saved me plenty of time.

After a couple of weeks working on the interface, graphics, and final touches tonight I have submitted the app. Now it’s just a waiting game to see if they accept the app. Simple app but will sure put it to good use very soon. After a few months of planning and research I can say it has been worth it all even if it’s not approved (fingers crossed).
While looking for a simple solution for placing demo websites online I came across the below article. I had no idea that this actually was available to users of Google Drive. This makes it so easy as I can edit the files right from the Google Drive app on my iPad. Thanks Google!

This week I entered the testing phase for the app I created for the iPhone. Though a simple idea, making sure it truly is easy to use is main concern. Also making sure others will understand what they can do with the app is another very close concern. After a few more days I will be finalizing my app and prepping for submission to Apple. Hope that they see as much as I do that it meets the basic requirements of an app. It’s exciting and scary at the same time. Overall Xcode is not that bad its just I dove right in versus walking through examples. Thank goodness for youtube and all that I found on the internet.

While working through my first app for the iPhone I came across this article.
iPhone SDK Tip: Firing custom events when a link is clicked in a UIWebView | dBlog.com.au.
It helped me devise a better method of handling unique URL protocols.
Hope to have my first app in stores by April 15th.

Searching for unique ways to include all devices that would view a particular website with a background image I came across this tip. Contain vs. Cover as an option for the background-size CSS attribute helped me out.

While working on an idea for a web application I came across this graphic that explains the dimensions and file size of an iOS enabled devices. It was helpful for me to understand why certain tasks were taking a while on my iPhone 4S and not on the iPad 2.
Over the weekend I was researching various existing sliders and how these jQuery and CSS plugins worked and what features they had. I was looking for something that was very simple and easy to use in any area on a page. I ended up spending some time creating my own. This is my very first plugin. The very nice think about this plugin is that we can use it in other pages besides those with extensions .html. I recently used this same code in a clients website. Along with creating this plugin I wanted to learn more about github. Look forward to comments on ways to improve.

Came across this link when I was working with jQuery. I will sure use this information more as it has become a trend from the source code I have seen.
