Client Side SQL with Movies I want to see!

While playing with all the new web technologies I decided to use Client Side SQL to make a simple web app. Tossing around with ideas I decided to make a simple wish list for movies, I found a great API that would allow me to get info about the movies called TMDb, and started the hard process of setting up a working Client side SQLite database, to store the users wish list.

I started by using this Client Side SQL tutorial and this great TMDb guide it took a bit but I got it working happily in the end. Here’s the link to the App, and after I make it I decided that it would make a great GitHub project (I’ve talked about GitHub before) so here is a link to the GitHub project. If your mouse has crazy stuff happening in the background on the app thats because of a great HTML5 Javascript API here’s that link.

After all that it only works on Chrome and Safari because all the others aren’t up to scratch on supporting the Client Side SQL. I was thinking of ways of getting someone to actually use it so I put it onto the Chrome Web Store, here it is. I actually really liked putting it on the Chrome Web Store because I get way more views than I imagined it would get.

Learner Log Book iOS

Context

I am 16 and in Victoria that means that I can drive a car on a Learners Permit, which is lots of fun for me and very scary for my parents. In Victoria Learner drivers have to keep a Log Book of their driving so that they can prove that they have enough experience when they go for their P’s. After nearly a year of driving practice I have over 100 hours of the 120 hours I need. To Log a trip you have to take a Book they give you to the car and fill out lots of information about the trip then get the supervising driver to sign the log.

What the app does

I have made an iOS App called Learner Log Book to help me record the important information of a Learner Driving trip while I’m on the go, so that I can transfer it to the Physical book later on. I find this especially useful for when I don’t have the Log Book with me. I know of people who use this app with their physical log book at the same time because my app calculates the total time, so they don’t have to.

I have had a very good reviews from this app, a high iTunes rating and lots of people asking me for an Android version I am confident people are happy with the app.

Conclusion

I have thoroughly enjoyed developing this app and have already planned my next app. If you have any good Ideas of changes or apps you want please tell me in the comments.
