CloudOn

Posted: September 25, 2013 in Online Services

A really great service to use as it combines all your online drives (Google Drive, SkyDrive, DropBox, …) in one nice interface. Now we can access it from a browser just not on our tablets. Used this service for a while and really like the ability to edit documents without having another program installed!

Finally got a chance to read over the Bootstrap version 3 documentation. Cannot wait to convert over some sites to this new framework. Makes things much easier to get up and running.Bootstrap.

CSS media types for devices

Posted: June 27, 2013 in CSS, HTML, Web App

Found this a while back and I know this has helped me.

@media (min-width:320px) { /* smartphones, iPhone, portrait 480×320 phones */ }
@media (min-width:481px) { /* portrait e-readers (Nook/Kindle), smaller tablets @ 600 or @ 640 wide. */ }
@media (min-width:641px) { /* portrait tablets, portrait iPad, landscape e-readers, landscape 800×480 or 854×480 phones */ }
@media (min-width:961px) { /* tablet, landscape iPad, lo-res laptops ands desktops */ }
@media (min-width:1025px) { /* big landscape tablets, laptops, and desktops */ }
@media (min-width:1281px) { /* hi-res laptops and desktops */ }

Plenty of great information about mobile development in non-native app creative methods.

Ran across a great explanation for local storage for mobile devices. Helped me understand how I can structure offline or online content collection and recall.

Local Storage – Dive Into HTML5.

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.

Bootstrap Form Builder

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.

iPhone App submitted

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).Apple confirms iPhone app received

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!

 

Google Drive lets developers share hosted websites by storing HTML, JavaScript, and CSS files.

Testing phase

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.
