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!

Pocket Conspiracies, a group role-playing app

I wrote and programmed a group role-playing app! The gist is everyone playing needs to be in the same room and have the app on their smartphone, and then they perform together a series of challenges. It's for 3-10 players, takes 20-45 min, ages 10+. The app is free, doesn't have ads, and doesn't track your info beyond what is strictly needed to run the game. [more inside]

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]

Shngri - iOS and web app for colour/sound relax

Inspired by the theories of Hans Cousto - the planet tones and the Law of the Octave, I made this iOS app and a web app. Use it for sound healing/meditation/connection with the Eternal/looking at nice colours.

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.

Killer Word

Interesting instant-search dictionary app for iOS and Mac which finds words based on some of the letters they contain irrespective of order. For example you can type KQV and it will find you the only 13 words that contain all those letters (like EQUIVOKE). It's remarkably useful for word games like Letterpress (whose dictionary it is wrapped around) or for checking goes at Scrabble, or for a lot of word-related messing about. [more inside]

Frank: Free, truly private, messaging for iOS

In the wake of the recent wiretapping allegations, I thought this might be of interest. Frank is a fairly unique iOS app which we've developed for secure chat. It permits frictionless, accountless, completely anonymous, end-to-end encrypted conversations, voicemails etc. Free at this point, although we will have to start charging for it sooner or later to cover server costs. Elevator pitch below the fold. [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?

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]

Samvada for iOS

Samvada (currently free in the app store) turns your iPhone/iPad into a set of sympathetic strings, tuned to the notes of a raga. Designed for practicing and performing Indian Classical music, Samvada is also fun to use for everyone - it turns everything the microphone picks up into tuneful sound.

Picture Chat

I made a little free iPad app called Picture Chat. In it, two people (sharing the same iPad) talk not by speaking... but by typing any of the over 500 pictures to form picture sentences. In this video, you can actually see two of the robots (that come with the program) automagically talking to each other -- see robot communication weirdness ensue: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBRmL7YXCZ8
