5 X 5 Strength App Updates

0

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…)

Polygon & GetHuman Updates

0

It has been a while since I have worked on these two apps, but they both just received updates. If you are using GetHuman for WP7, this will be the last update this version of the app receives, from now on the app will only be updated for WP8. Both apps received updates to allow for better social sharing and now you can share via SMS/Text message, Email, NFC, or any social networks you have setup on your phone. Also ads have been removed from both apps entirely. Polygon is still listed as a $0.99 and will allow you to “try” the app indefinitely with no ads. If you want to help support development of the app you can choose to purchase the app for the $0.99 listed in the store. (more…)

Learning LINQ to XML

Since releasing the first version of GetHuman app for Windows Phone it has been a while since I have been working on any new apps. I decided to finish up a small app that I had started some time back, namely the APFT (Army Physical Fitness Test) Calculator app. To begin with this app I began to attempt deriving formulas to compute the scores, but soon realized two things:

  1. One: Deriving all the formulas to compute the scores for each event in the APFT would take me longer than writing a quick look up function, and…
  2. Two: I had never used LINQ to XML before and this was an excuse to learn how to use this.

I have finally finished up the last part for the initial release of the GetHuman app for WP7 platform. The WP7 version has many improvements over the WebOS version and also I will be continuing to maintain the WP7 version for the foreseeable future since WP7 applications will continue to be supported in WP8.

Some of the main features I made sure to improve from the WebOS version include:

Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 Announced

0

Today Nokia announced the latest addition to the Lumia series of phones and it sure does look impressive so far. I personally am already a fan of the current generation Windows Phone OS and can hardly wait to get my hands on this new line of phones running WP8.

The new Nokia Lumia 920 is a 4G LTE phone powered by the 1.5GHz Dual Core Snapdragon S4 processor. It comes equipped with a 4.5-inch curved glass display, blur-free scrolling and a super-fast refresh rate courtesy of the PureMotion HD+ technology Nokia has pioneered for these new phones. Another impressive part of this screen is the touch sensitivity. It allows for people to use the touchscreen with their fingers, nails, gloves, or even their keys all while having scratch resistant Gorilla Glass. It also sports an 8.7 megapixel PureView camera that has some impressive optical image stabilization (see the YouTube playlist below to see a demo.) Lastly the battery to power this device is an impressive 2000 mAh battery. (more…)

Android 4.1 vs Windows Phone 7.5

0

Thanks to changing my cellular provider recently, I am now currently using an Android device. To be exact the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. I previously owned a HTC Arrive for Sprint which even though it was a rather large device, the OS easily made up for the hardware’s shortcomings. So now that I am with a better provider than Sprint, I can more easily switch between devices and see how each one stacks up in my day to day use.

To begin with I will start this several part comparison with my initial first impressions of moving from Windows Phone to Android. (more…)
