Hello iOS7: Are you ready for a new mobile experience?

iOS 7 iPhoneWe are sure you’ve noticed the big news coming out of Apple – release of the iOS 7. Apple CEO, Tim Cook has declared that “iOS 7 is the biggest change to iOS since the first iPhone was introduced”. And he is not far off, the new iOS 7 has introduced some major interface changes. What does not mean for those of us who make their living designing and developing applications, these changes make older applications look out of date next to the new iOS 7 applications. Well, it’s time to update our most prized applications for them to maintain their standing in the App marketplace.  Read the rest of this entry »

OneTouchRecycle – OAK submission to Apps4Ottawa

There is a need in Ottawa for a mobile app that makes recycling locally super simple, giving you specific details of where you can recycle and exactly what you can recycle. For a G7 capital, Ottawa’s recycling footprint – and to a huge extent our recycling awareness – is frankly quite appalling. To think of it, you can still not easily find recycling in commercial “ready to go premium beverage” shops and other recycling heavy businesses should/has to change. It is our opinion that a mobile application in this domain will offer environmentally conscious citizens greater choice and empower them to drive change/innovation in this domain and it will help convert those who are still on the edge of jumping on to the “Eco-Friendly Recycling Conscious” bandwagon.

iPhone OS 4.0

Yesterday was a big day at Apple. They finally showed us what they have been working on for past year or so. iPhone, like it or hate it, is a hot platform. With the introduction of iPad, things are just going to get hotter. It will be interesting to see how developers tackle the latest SDK.

So what is in the latest SDK:

  • Multitasking
  • iAd
  • Game Center
  • New API
  • New Development Tools

We at OAK Computing are excited to get our hands on this latest SDK. Our clients have been asking us to start brainstorming the possibilities of using the new SDK.  Apple has opened up a few of the closed APIs that will allow us to really make the experience fun and unique.

Perhaps the most exciting feature is “Multitasking” and along with it the ability to do “offline notifications”. If your application needed to provide real time alerts to the user without the use of push notification the “offline notifications” should really make it easier. Your application can now keep running in the background and when needed be ready for consumption.

We at OAK Computing have already started working on some updates to our existing client applications with latest SDK. If you wish to see how we can help you deliver on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, please get in touch with us.
