When Fitbit purchased Pebble in early 2017, I had a feeling it was to woo pebble developers to a potentially new Fitbit smartwatch. I worked with me. I bought the new smartwatch, Fitbit Ionic, on the first day of its retail release.
I wanted to create a sports-related website with a custom-made WordPress plugin and show game schedules for my timezone. So, I created Gamewinner.tv . It is a fully automated sports streaming website showing live streaming games ranging from football games to soccer games to even Ultimate Frisbee games.
What helps is there are niche sport leagues hoping to get more exposure through streaming their games live for free. If you’re looking to watch athletes dive for a frisbee, this website is your you!
UPDATE (2017): planning to sell this site
I have experience in WordPress and thought I add some experience in another Content Management System – Drupal.
Drupal doesn’t have as many plugins as WordPress, but Drupal was easier to port to other web accounts. And the Drupal admin dashboard was also a bit more intuitive.
I created several Drupal websites for my own personal knowledge. With my love of sports, I created a website of an NFL quarterback, http://www.MarcusMariotaMania.com
UPDATE(2016): I have stopped renewing the MarcusMariotaMania.com domain name.
Here’s a Live Wallpaper for your Android smartphone. It’s an animated video of the Bellagio water fountains in Las Vegas. The video runs in the background on your phone’s home screen.
The video used for the live wallpaper was taken by myself with my Canon DSLR. Then edited in Apple’s iMovie.

I have been buying a lot of apps from the AppStore and Google Play Market for my young son. Then I thought, “Hey, why don’t I make my own app?!”
In my spare time, I developed an app to teach my 2-year old son the names of his family members and favorite cartoon characters.
There are apps to teach your toddler animal names, colors, shapes, vehicles… but what about apps to teach your toddler the names of friends and loved ones? This app can teach your toddler the names of his/her family and friends in a fun and easy to play game.
Download the game from Google Play or Play the game online
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

Everything you need for the delicious Vietnamese noodle soup, Phở, is in this app. Quickly get a list of all the Pho restaurants near you and plot them all on a map. Or enter in a city name to get all the Pho places in that city. Also included is a recipe to make your own Pho. View the photo gallery of all the Pho toppings you usually get in a restaurant – brisket, steak, fatty brisket, tai, chin, gau, pho ga, etc. Finally, an app my parents would use.

For Apple iPhone users, use the Safari browser to access the web app here,
update: There are some pros and cons to using Sencha Touch over other mobile-specific frameworks like jQueryMobile. I’m currently working on another smartphone app using jQuery Mobile and will have it available soon.
