AppHere

AppHere

A friend of mine, Tolu Akinola, contacted me a while ago to help him build at iOS app. I was happy to oblige, it is an excellent idea for an App…

AppHere is an application that helps you find applications specific to the locations around you. Simply launch the app and it will show you more app that makes for where you are.

For example, say you are the MET in NY, AppHere will show you apps that make sense for this place. It might show you an app for finding your way around or maybe an app about local museums.

Development Notes

Developing this app was an interesting experience. Using the location APIs are surprisingly finicky. I think the biggest issue is that the API reports the location of the iOS device over a number of callbacks and you never know if it is going to be the last, most accurate call.
