PhoneGap Geo Demo App in Ripple

We finally have our first of many demo videos! For this first introduction demo we elected to show the PhoneGap training application showing off how we manage Geo Location enabled mobile applications. Rather then talk about it here, I’ll just let the video do the talking :-)

If you’d like to take The Ripple Mobile Environment Emulator for a spin, please visit our product site at http://ripple.tinyhippos.com

The PhoneGap Start application can be found here: http://github.com/phonegap/phonegap-start

We have enhanced the PhoneGap Start application to gracefully handle a GPS time out, for that source code, please visit: https://github.com/tinyhippos/ripple_demo/tree/master/public/phonegap

Awesome Turnout!

If you didn’t get a chance to swing by @chainsawsalon last night for the first KW Start-ups Recruitment and Information Session – you missed out!

A big thanks to Ernst & Young and Communitech for sponsoring the event and supplying all the beer and all-you-can eat poutine buffet.  Another Big thanks goes out to Redwoods Media for hosting this event and making it a huge success!   There were 9 start-ups present last night and over 160 local students from the University of WaterlooWilfrid Laurier, and Conestoga College.

Love for Community involvement

A big part of why the tinyHippos team is so successful is our love for community involvement.  Whether it is contributing to open source projects, speaking at conference or just demoing our product Ripple, the team loves to give back and spread the word on multi-platform mobile development!

Please join us to listen to our CTO, Dan Silivestru speak at Communitech’s new Mobile Peer2Peer series on February 23rd at the Communitech Hub at noon.  Sign up is free!

Topic: The native app…is it dying? With all the fragmentation in the mobile marketplace, building mobile apps largely means 1 app per platform… will the native app survive?  Are HTML5 Mobile apps the answer? With frameworks such as PhoneGap, Appcelerator,  and browser/cloud based development, testing and deployment tools… They just might be.

Hope to see you there!
