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.”
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.
We spoke with Chris Reckling (Program Manager, Mobile UX at IBM) and Rob Ingram (Manager of Mobile Strategy, Social Business at IBM) to get the inside scoop on what’s new with IBM mobile apps.
Topics we cover included:
Even if you don’t have Connections or Sametime in-house, you can try those apps out against Lotus Greenhouse, and you can also download a version of IBM Worklight that’s free to try (look for a link to the Developer Edition on the Worklight home page). Also, don’t miss the upcoming IBM Connections mobile tech talk on August 15.

YouAtNotes Software has just released a mobile iOS client app for their popular XPagesWiki.com site. The app works on the iPhone and iPad and gives you access to all the great XPages community wiki articles. Not only does it give you native access to the articles but you also synchronize all of the data with the XPagesWiki.com site and stores it locally on your device. This gives you access to the content anytime you need it.
The app costs $4,99 and is well worth the money. Congratulations to Julian Buss and the YouAtNotes team on creating such a great app. The XPagesWiki.com app was built using Appcelerator.
Download XPagesWiki.com from the App Store >
