It’s been awhile since I posted something I’ve done. I’ve been doing amazing things at Apple Inc, which has kept me busy. Awhile back, I did begin a project to help me learn all of HTML5 features. I decided to make a Jeremy Lin app that incorporates all of the new and cool HTML5 features. I also wanted this app/website to be responsive. This app should work and look nice on all devices – desktop, smartphone, tablet. Here is my excerpt from the Google Play store,
This is the Jeremy Lin Linsanity Video Game. You decide which play to make and watch your stats increase. Watch hundreds with highlight clips of Jeremy Lin’s NBA career. This app also includes Jeremy Lin’s twitter feed, real-time stats, youtube highlight clips, the Houston Rocket’s schedule, fan photos, news, biography, etc.
Play the Jeremy Lin video game from your desktop, smartphone, or tablet here
