4ZzZfm app in need of an update
The 4ZzZfm app was my first ever mobile app. It was then my first PhoneGap / Cordova app when I ported it.
It’s in desperate need of an update if for no other reason than that the iOS version does not support the iPhone 5 screen size.
I am thinking of trying to consolidate the codebases (currently it is a codebase for each of its two platforms) and maybe even expand it to cover other platforms beyond iOS and Android.
Questions I am going to have to look at over the next couple of weeks:
- Does anyone listening to 4ZzZfm want to do so on WP8, BlackBerry or any of the other platforms supported by PhoneGap / Cordova?
- Do I just use KendoUI and keep it closed source, or do I do a completely custom UI and open source the app? (note: I will only open source it if I can get a real program feed instead of scraping the website like I do now… the current code is embarrassment personified)
- If I am supporting Android 2.3 (and I am sure I will), how will I handle the fact that it does not support html5 audio… and conversely, the media APIs I use for it are no good for streaming radio on iOS?
- Are there other features that would be of use to 4ZzZfm?
I’ll try to keep updating the blog as I go with it (since I haven’t been using the blog for anything else lately with Pixfor’s own update on hold).
