Attending “A day of REST”

Attending “A day of REST”

On January 28th 2016, we’re attending a conference called A Day of REST, where people who made the WP REST API and people who use it are going to talk about the next great thing the Internet will see (or is already seeing).

Our CTO and iOS developer Marcel Schmitz is going to London to collect inspiration from all the people around this project and WordPress altogether. We can’t go past the fact that the mobile and the web are close enough for them depend from each other, so we’re hoping to come back to hellodev full with valuable information for our fellow web and mobile developers.

New CodaCanyon release: WPAPP – Full WordPress News App for iOS

New CodaCanyon release: WPAPP – Full WordPress News App for iOS

We have launched several products in CodeCanyon from Envato, exclusively for WooCommerce®, but today we present a product released for iOS which also involves WordPress.

WPAPP is a full native iOS application for the iPhone or iPod touch that has been built to easily connect to a WordPress Blog / Magazine for people who want to offer their users a professional iPhone App for reading the posts.

This app is very easy to understand and to tweak, it’s written in Swift 2.0 and compatible with iOS 8 / 9. It uses an universal plugin called WP REST API that is going to merge into WordPress core this December and that is available for now for free on the WordPress Plugin Directory. This app allows you to show posts, images and information about the author. Support for other type of information will be gradually added. It also uses two open source libraries called Alamofire (to handle the communication with your server) and ObjectMapper (that helps to get the WordPress models translated to their Swift equivalents) added through pods included in the zip file.

Features:

– Load posts from any WordPress blog (version 4.0 or newer)
– Loads images asynchronously in different sizes and stores them in a simple cache system built in for faster loading
– Gets content and excerpt correctly from WordPress by stripping more complicated HTML tags and keeping line tags
– Extensions to easily configure the look and feel of the app
– A communications layer that is easy to understand and to expand
– Very easy to expand and integrate with existing apps

We’re very proud to announce our first project on Kickstarter, SafeCloud Photos, a carefully engineered platform for secure data storage and data sharing. It relies on innovative and astonishingly elegant mechanisms to provide proven, perfect data privacy. A beautifully crafted photo app that allows you to privately store your photos in your favorite cloud providers.

SafeCloud has a diverse team with people from both the industry and the academia and most of them hold a PhD. We’re partners at University of Minho in Portugal and with a team in Switzerland, contributing to the first stage with our expertise in developing photography related mobile apps.

Take a look at the project’s detail at Kickstarter to get more information. Help us out to take this project to the next level. Oh, and if you have any questions about it please feel free to contact us!
