APP Development for YOU

International development of high quality mobile Applications for YOU.

My goal is always to develop high quality apps and to follow the BlackBerry 10 Flow and UI Guidelines, this is why most of my applications are already certified as ‘Built For BlackBerry’.

Some of my apps are only in-house apps – some are available at BlackBerry World – a short description follows. Looking for my apps in BlackBerry World simply search for ‘ekke’ and you should see the following apps:

OpenDataSpace is a native Cascades Client for OpenDataSpace Cloud. My ODS App uses Invocation Framework heavily to select or view files using ImageViewer, PDF, MediaPlayer, DocsToGo and more. I also integerated an Audio recorder so you can use ODS as a dictaphone and then upload to the cloud. You can also share Links via BBM or eMAil.

ekkes Tea Timer

ekkes TeaTimer – a small utility I’m using by myself: missed a good looking native TeaTimer, so I created my own. Also an example HowTo use Animations, Timer, Image-Transitions and more.

Layout specific to Portrait / Landscape and Q10.

Remember integrated to write a note if Tea becomes empty.

FourSquare integrated if you’re traveling and wanted to get places nearby where you’ll find Tea.

BBM integrated to let your collegues know that fresh Tea is ready.

Runs in the background while minimized and sends notifications to the Hub if Tea is ready.
