Good Spirits

Good Spirits is a drink tracker for iOS. Ever since learning about the correlation between drinking and various kinds of cancer, I've been meticulous about logging and tracking every drink I consume. Good Spirits makes this process easy: just set a weekly limit, check in your drinks, and the app will let you know when you're in the danger zone. For the craft beer drinkers, you can automatically pull new check-ins from Untappd. Free and soon-to-be open source!

MusicMessages!

MusicMessages! is a collaborative step sequencer for the iMessage App Store (iPhone, iPad). Using the simple and (hopefully) intuitive interface, you can punch in a few chords or a percussion line and send the message off to your friends, who can then make their own changes and send it back. Five instrument layers and over 40 MIDI instruments are available to use. Bonus: if you have an iPhone 7, the note buttons respond to pressure and "pop" like bubble wrap with the help of the Taptic engine!

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]

The Fridge app: save food, save money (with app video)

I've finally released an iPhone app I've been working on for four years: The Fridge. It's made to help you remember about your perishable foods so they don't go to waste. It has some unique UI elements that (I hope) are interesting. And of course, it comes with a demo video, but not a usual one (absolutely no soft ukulele music). [more inside]

Augur: iPhone App That Uses Twitter to Predict the Future

Augur is an iPhone app that displays random Twitter posts, and attempts to provide both advice and prophesy. Pulling from a growing list of keywords, the app ignores any Twitter posts containing links, images, #hashtags, or @mentions. It also parses out any first person mention (I, Me, Myself) and tries to present Twitter posts containing second personal conditionals (You will, You shall, etc). [more inside]

SAMi, the Sleep Activity Monitor

I created SAMi out of a very personal need to monitor my son at night after he was diagnosed with epilepsy. Using a networked IR security camera, I built the first version in 2009. The code was written in python and ran on a dedicated old Dell laptop. Over the years I've refined the design, tweaking the detection algorithm until I had a system that worked reliably for us. With the help of funding from the Epilepsy Foundation (I won their first "Shark Tank" competition) and the support of friends and family I've turned my bespoke python based solution into an iPhone app. www.samialert.com is my new website where we've recently launched SAMi to the public, we are starting to ship cameras worldwide. The response so far has been gratifying.

Breastfeeding & pumping helper app for iPhone

I had a baby this year, and we had a LOT of trouble with breastfeeding and pumping. I used basically every baby app I could find and found most to be frustratingly bad. So I made my own, and after 6 months of development (during naps no less) it went up on the App Store today. It works for nursing, pumping, or bottle-feeding moms, and even supports twins/multiples. And it is designed to be used one-handed. [more inside]

Nametrix: Doctor or Dancer?

Nametrix is an iOS app I created initially for baby naming, but it ended up being way cooler than that. It uses public data on millions of people (US census, US campaign contributions, Wikipedia) to determine what professions, political parties, and other affiliations each name tends toward. For example, Ellen is a disproportionately common name for 1) psychotherapists, 2) librarians, and 3) activists. Ellens also overwhelmingly lean toward the Democrat party and have tended to be most popular in the northeastern part of the US. As far as I know, nobody else has made anything remotely like this... Pretty fascinating stuff, right? What other kinds of metrics would you like to see?

Discover Great Cocktails

I've been participating in the creation of a free iPhone app called BarNotes.

FlagWaver

I decided to quit my programming job at Google, start a small company, and write an app with my best friend Graham Bartram. As he's a top flag expert these days, the result was FlagWaver. Watch his beautiful high quality flag artwork ripple in a virtual breeze as you spin and zoom them, even drag the simulated fabric with your finger. [more inside]

I've just released my first iPhone app. It's called Double Feature, and it's for the kind of film fan who likes knowing who was in what with whom.

If you've ever been watching a movie and found yourself wondering “hey, wasn't that guy in $MOVIE_TITLE” or “say, what's got $PERSON_1 and $PERSON_2 in it”, Double Feature is for you. With its Movie Match feature, you can type in two movies and get back a list of the people that worked on both movies. With Name Search, you can punch in two names and get back all of the films those two people both worked on. That's literally all that Double Feature does. If you'd classify yourself as a movie buff, I think you'll really like it.

Cosmos - the short-term, long-term and everything in between timer

Birthdays belong on calendars. But what about events with more flexible due dates? Things like watering the plants, cleaning the bathroom or replacing the water filter every six months. And what about things you're looking forward to? How many days exactly is it until your cell phone contract expires or your homebrew is ready for quaffing with friends? Cosmos Timer is an iPhone app that can track these kinds of events. It can handle events that are only a few minutes (boiling the perfect egg) or several years (your next tetanus booster shot) - and it shows a nice countdown which you can share with friends.
