You have great ideas for mobile Apps? …but you don’t code?

You have great ideas for mobile Apps? You’d like to develop those ideas but don’t know how to program?

Now you can do it!!

Transform your ideas into real Apps for your Android phone, with Google App Inventor: http://appinventor.googlelabs.com.

I haven’t tried it yet but I think that for us, developers,it can be a very interesting tool because it allows us to sketch our Apps more faster. And it can be even better, if it allows us to take that sketch App code, and put it in the traditional pipeline, using Eclipse or other IDE to develop more advanced features.

Share your ideas with me, write a comment here…

New Project… New iPhone…

That’s it! New project…

I’m working against the clock trying to implement an iPhone App dedicated to the 2010 Football World Cup in South Africa.

I have a friend who promissed to help me with the graphics, let’s wait I can arrange the time (in my little spare time!) to make a functional prototype! If I can do it, then my friend will do the graphics, we’ll polish ant test the App and try to launch it in the App Store!

Unfortunately I only had this idea a few days ago (it didn’t existed on the App Store, now I can see some similar Apps), but I think that it will be nice to try hard to achieve it, so that I/we can at least gain some more experience on iPhone development.

I hope luck is on our side!

Now, the new iPhone…

Today, Apple announced the new iPhone 4 (powered by the new Apple A4 processor) and featuring quite a lot of new interesting features, like:

  • Multitasking
  • Retina Display, an incredible 960×640 resolution, glass display with a
  • 5 MegaPixel Camera with a LED Flash
  • FaceTime (video calls)
  • 720p HD Video Recording (up to 30fps)
  • Improved Battery Time and so on…

Apple, also announced the new iOS4 that will be available through a free software update. Unfortunately it will be compatible with all previous iPhone versions, except my 2G! :-/

You can see the new iOS4 features on the following page: “http://www.apple.com/iphone/softwareupdate/“.

With so much Apps on my iPhone, the Folders new feature would be very welcome!

I’m also curious and interesting in exploring 2 new features:

  • Gift Apps and
  • Apple’s iAds.

Well, now I have some code to type…
