London Titanium Meetup – July 2012

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

In Just over a week we will have another Titanium London meetup, we have some exciting talks and demos for you. I hope you can make it.

Titanium Mobile Tip 1

Saturday, July 21st, 2012

Android Development Tip – for Titanium Mobile Developers.

This is, what I guess will be, the first of many byte-sized tips, tricks, hints, whatever you want to call it, that can help speed up and optimise Titanium Mobile development. I will most likely post these up as and when I come across them, in the hope they will be of use.

When working with the android emulator and a device, you may be testing on both simultaneously. If, like me, you jump between command line and Titanium Studio you may find it easy to build for emulator via the command line or create builds with unit tests in mind (eg. jasmine-titanium / jasmine-node).

In this case you can easily install the apk to your device using the command:

adb -d install -r /path/to/app.apk

Quite often, Studio will not be able to do this as it sees more than one device. the “-d” flag will look for an attached device connected via USB.

London Titanium oAuth Presentation

I spoke at the London Titanium Meetup last month on how you can incorporate and build a Twitter app using oAuth libraries into a Titanium Mobile project.

The talk  went well and I’m sharing the slides with you here:

Surrey Police

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

I’ve been working hard on a Titanium Mobile project this year for Multizone Ltd.

A series of apps really, a utility app in essence to help bridge public engagement with local policing activities.

Utilising Public API data sources and open information networks, the app which will be available through the app store soon, we are waiting for approval from Apple.
Key features include:
  • Nearest Police Station Finder
  • Local Call to your Police Station
  • Vote on Local priorities
  • Reply to Police Tweets from your local area
  • Realtime Map of Police interventions
  • Charts and Graphs of Crime Statistics
  • List and Bios for all local Safety Neighbourhood Teams
The key to this app is that it is part of a pair, the other half was developed and deployed to the police officers on the beat in Runnymede, who end up  sending an update at the time of an incident, their app is an easy to use single click solution, which helps populate the data within this app.
This version and release has been targeted specifically to the Runnymede area within Surrey, although some aspects will work wherever you are in the country.
We intend to release android and blackberry verisons soon too.
The app was built using the Titanium Appcelerator Mobile Development Platform a javascript driven set of API’s that talk to the devices native sensors and User Interface. The main benefit of using this platform is the ability to deploy to android and iOS and soon blackberry, all without the hassle of having to learn specific languages for each platform.
