WHA App Update
Hi everyone! I’m Cody, the developer behind WHA and I’ll be here giving occasional updates as our iOS app progresses.
I’ll just dive straight into an overview of the app, and feel free to comment on this post with any advice or suggestions. The design of the app isn’t final yet either, WYSIWYMNG (what you see is what you may not get). This is the main map view, which defaults to your current location:
Some features that still need to be added are location hours, filters, reviews, check-ins, and bookmarking locations. Unfortunately, location hours from Foursquare API can only be fetched one location at a time, so we’ll need to cache this in our database first and occasionally refresh the data from Foursquare. I’ll get a bit more technical on this in a future short post.
Sorry Android users, we don’t have plans set for the Android app yet (but we will definitely be working on it in the near future!) That’s the update for now, I’m currently working hard at Caffe Amouri in Vienna, VA. The wifi’s slightly on the fast end here (7.5MBps download, 8MBps upload). There’s about 13 tables, 7 of them with access to outlets, and all full on Monday afternoon (I kind of like it a bit lively!). It’s got a small parking lot, but there’s street parking too, all free.
To be the first to try our app, please apply to become a pioneer.
See you next time!
