xn--qeiaa.ws: Emoji Domain Registration

Domains can be more than just letters and numbers. Most people have no idea they can just type a bunch of hearts in their address bar and go to a domain... and yet, it works!

Fake app review detector

I've spent the past 18 months or so slogging away at apprecs.com, an app search engine that can detect review manipulation. You can see the worst offenders here. I posted this back when this was iOS-only, and I'd like to share some major new features I've added. [more inside]

Gramma' Ma English Grammar

I recently became interested in coding and wanted to provide my students with a way to study on the go, so I made this Android app. It is four hundred grammar questions in sixteen different categories and five exams of forty questions each. All the questions are modeled after the TOEFL PBT or ITP exams, which almost no one takes anymore so the study materials are limited and this will hopefully help them. [more inside]

Android app - Shortcuts for Waze 2.0

Unlike google maps, Waze has no way of creating shortcuts to destinations. So a while back I created a simple app to create shortcuts and released it into the wild. It got moderately popular, but people kept asking for features. [more inside]

App search engine that filters out fake reviews

While developing mobile apps, I realized how rife the App Store is with rating/review manipulation. So, I created apprecs.com, a facade for the store that allows you to filter out many of the fake, coerced, or otherwise manipulated reviews. You can also filter by other criteria such as how recently the app was last updated and age/gender of the typical user. What do you think? I'm getting started on adding Android (Google Play) support today. [more inside]

Android App - Shortcuts for Waze

For some unfathomable reason Waze does not provide a built in way to add shortcuts to places (at least not that I could find, except maybe the home/work widget that doesn't work on my system). So I wrote this app to provide them. [more inside]

NumbersRound - Countdown-style number problem solver/app

I made a web-app that generates and efficiently solves Countdown-style number problems. Then I turned it into an android app (free of charge and also free of advertising). The javascript powering both is open-sourced under the MIT license.

Name That Student: An app to help teachers learn students' names

Name That Student is a free Android app to help teachers (post-secondary or K12) learn the names of their students. The app uses pictures of each student to create study flashcards and then to create quizzes: flashcard, multiple choice (one picture: 3-5 names), and reverse multiple choice (one name: four pictures).

I wrote my first app!

I've been teaching myself programming, and this is the first app I've ever completed. (Android-only for now -- it's available through the Google Play Store - and I'm open to any suggestions/feedback/encouragement anyone wants to give.) It's free - with no advertising - so it's not meant to make any money. Just wanted to prove to myself that I really could do it, so the whole project stayed simple and positive. [more inside]

Scrablet (Pro) Scrabble Trainer App

My husband and I wrote this Android app for serious Scrabble players to train their anagramming ability. Unlike similar apps it allows the player to choose between various scrabble competition dictionaries (SOWPODS, TWL, etc), to choose to get a rack that includes J, Z, Q or Z, to require that at least one 7-letter word is available and to specify whether or not blanks should be allowed. Word definitions are available, although in my experience most Scrabble players don't really care about those! There's also a free version people can try out that doesn't have some of these "professional" features. [more inside]

Android App to Learn Spanish

I joined a language learning company recently and just released this Spanish app for Android devices called Bueno... entonces (which means great, so... and is a common "filler" phrase in Spanish). If you're a non-ios owner and a non-spanish speaker, and you don't mind mildly ribald humor, you will genuinely like this app. It had already been written for iOS but I partnered w/the original owner to release for Android so it's a bit of personal labor of love for me.

Savings planner

The thing started with a simple question: I have a savings plan without a fixed interest rate I regularly put money in. I even put extra money in it if there is something left at the end of the month or if my bank advisor tells me so. But when it came to examining the result I was left alone. All I could see was the actual balance. No one would tell me if my savings run well or not. So how do I find out the performance of my savings? What is the "real" interest rate I have got?

I made a WWII Shoot 'em Up for Android

A friend and I decided we wanted to get some Android development under our belt. What better way than to make a retro-themed videogame that harkened back to one of the favorites from my youth? Droidius: 1945 is a short, vertical shooter with old-school graphics and a kickin' rad soundtrack to match. Only a daring ace with skills to match can defeat Hitler and the Nazi Menace. Will you deliver victory? Or defeat? It's at your skillful fingertips!
