Match 2048

View it on github: https://github.com/jonathanwho/match2048 Think of this game as 2048 + Matching Cards Combined. I thought this would  be a fun app to hack at while trying to learn iOS. *I don’t have an iOS Developer Account so it’s unfortunately not in the app store.

Learning iOS

“I am always doing that which I can not do in order that I may learn how to do it.” – Pablo Picaso A few weeks ago one of my friends wanted to build an iOS app and I was pretty excited about it because I’ve been wanting to dabble in iOS. To start, I […]

Poké Battle Dex

Yes, I still enjoy playing Pokémon. There’s a cool website called pokemonshowdown.com that lets you play pokemon against other people. To help me look up all the pokémon abilities, stats, and weaknesses; I thought I’d build an app that lists all these details.

Quick Reads Challenge (Great Books Under 200 pages)

With work and school, it’s hard to give big books the time of day. I tried reading the first Game of Thrones book, but I found myself losing interest because I couldn’t keep up with all the little details in such a short amount of time. And while I’m not as big of a book […]

MirandaFeedback

I’m in the beginning stages of putting together a very easy-to-create Android feedback form that any app can use called MirandaFeedback. (The name is a bit vain, but it’ll have to do in lieu of a Miranda algorithm I have yet to come up with.) To use MirandaFeedback, you have to add the project as […]
