I was able to publish the first version of the 5×5 Strength app for WP8 devices a few months back and am glad to hear about all the feedback. I already published two updates to resolve minor bug issues with the workout progress being lost when the screen locks. Up next I am excited to add support for kilograms, progress charts, and maybe even a between lift timer.
Make sure to go checkout the current version out there and feel free to leave comments here or submit a review of what you think so far: (more…)
So yet again, as you can probably see, I have decided to update this site again. As I start to spend more time developing mobile apps I plan to use this site to help post updates and links to the apps I publish. I am working on making a page for the WebOS version of GetHuman on this site until I finish the version for WP7. Development has slowed down considerably recently, but hopefully will get back on track soon.
I also started a second side project of making an Army Physical Fitness Calculator for WP7. If your interested in this, feel free to check out the screen shots below and let me know if you have any suggestions for it.
So it has been a while since I last posted, but I am still working on porting GetHuman app to the Windows Phone 7 platform. Sadly due to my combination of being easily distracted and also being legitimately busy (at least sometimes) it has been taking me a while to get this finished. I do have some screen shots of the progress so far. By no means are these finished, but just a sign that I am making some progress… As always I’m open to any design comments or suggestions.
So I got in touch with Brandon Watson and have already worked on developing GetHuman for Windows Phone 7 and also a few other apps. The real reason I am writing this article is to express how impressed I am with Windows Phone 7 after switching from WebOS.
I have been a pretty loyal fan of Palm and now HP in WebOS’s dying days. I have gone from a Palm Pre, to a Sprint Franken Pre+, and lastly a Sprint Franken Pre 2. If you are still a die hard fan of WebOS and still have your Palm Pre do yourself a favor and switch to Windows Phone 7. After just playing with the HTC Mazaa development device I got from Microsoft, I have already gone out and bought myself a Sprint HTC Arrive to replace my aging Palm Pre 2. I must admit though, Sprint yet again desperately needs to support better phones. I love Windows Phone 7, but one device is hardly a selection.
With the latest news that HP is planning on discontinuing production of WebOS devices all together I have decided to stop working on any WebOS projects until a future device would surface or become viable. However if you are looking to purchase a HP Touchpad for a super price, make sure to check out the fire sale pricing going on at pretty much every store until they sell out.
