JoyDrop: Give • Get • Share

This evening Apple approved the JoyDrop app that I developed for the Children’s Cancer Association.

“JoyDrop offers a place to share spontaneous moments of joy.Your “drops” of joy, collected with others, can create a sea of joy. At the Children’s Cancer Association we like to call it the Joy Effect.We invite you to share your found joy, moment by moment, drop by drop by using the JoyDrop app.Please share often.”

JoyDrop for iOS

The app allows you to share your words of joy and post them to Facebook if you want. Not only can JoyDrops be seen in the app, they can also be added and viewed on the Children’s Cancer Association Facebook “JoyDrop” Fan Page app:

For you geeks out there the iOS app was built with Appcelerator and stores data in an IBM Domino database. There are no more than 400 lines of code for the Appcelerator portion of the app. The app utilizes an XPages “XAgent” to post data and a Domino Access Services view to send JSON data back to the app to display JoyDrops. It literally took only minutes to develop the app interfaces in XPages. The Facebook app was built with XPages and the Facebook Graph API. It’s pretty cool how easy it is to utilize the Graph API within XPages.

The next version of the app will incorporate photo sharing from the iPhone and some other goodies. After that I will work on getting an Android version of the app developed.

A big thanks to my friends Matt White, Jeremy Hodge, Serdar Basegmez, Julian Robichaux, Niklas Heidloff, Mark Hughes, Per Henrik Lausten and Thomas Gumz for their support.
Stay tuned for a NotesIn9 video on how this app was put together.

  1. Thank you Bruce for the work you are doing for the Children’s Cancer Center. We lost our son to cancer last year. We know so many people who have been touched by this horrible disease. God Bless.
