I'm a web-loving, webapp maker kinda guy. Here are a few things I have created for my employers, my freelancing projects and my own personal projects

My Phở app is now available for all mobile devices

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 Google Android users, download the app in the Google Play store here and install for free,

For Apple iPhone users, use the Safari browser to access the web app here,

This app was developed using Sencha Touch 2.0.   Sencha Touch 2.0 is a javascript framework using HTML5/javascript technologies.  The data is taken from Yelp’s Webservice API.  I added Google’s geolocation APIs to plot the restaurants on the map.  The images for the Pho toppings were taken with my Canon t2i and photoshopped by me.

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.

My mobile app on the iPhone, iPad, Chrome, Android, Safari.

Task list mobile app on the iPhone, iPad, Safari, Chrome.

Realization is ready to enter the smart phone app world.  Luckily, I’ve been experimenting with it for a while already.  The company now needs to put the task list module of our web-based project management application on the all smartphone devices; iPhones, iPads, Androids, Blackberries, etc.

To get this started, I created a working prototype of our task list with Sencha Touch. Sencha Touch is an HTML5 framework, which makes it possible to use the same code to work on all mobile devices with a webkit browser. This prototype works on the iPhone, iPad, Google Chrome, Android and Safari. The app looks and feels more like a native app than a mobile website.

This app accesses a webservice API.  I created the webservice API with ASP.Net (asmx file). The webservice returns data in json format and then takes this json data and puts the it in a store to display the list.

*update: I see great potential using Sencha Touch as the programming framework of choice when creating mobile apps for all the mobile devices.
