Examples of our work
Here are some screenshots and details of the applications we’ve developed :
KashDroid – “Kashflow accounting on the move”
This is designed to allow Kashflow accounts users (of which Pale Purple is one) to use Kashflow on the move – on their mobile phone/tablet. It’s only available on Android. The video below should give you some illustration of it’s capabilities. You can find it on the Google Play store here
The application has a number of interesting features – including :
- Offline support (app will used cached if no network connection is available, ability to create invoices offline)
- Widget support – so you can have a summary/overview on your launch screen/home screen
- Address book sync/integration – it’s likely you’ll have invoicing/contact details for customers within Kashflow.com – so this feature allows you to merge your Kashflow address book with what’s on your phone.
- In app purchase – given the app is free, we thought we’d experiment with charging for invoice creation, widget use and address book sync. Currently the user purchases a 6 month subscription at a time.
- In the background it communicates securely with the published Kashflow.com SOAP API.
ScoresOnTheDoors – Food Hygiene
Recently we’ve rewritten the Android variant to make it native – offering better performance and feel.
Functionally, the apps for either platform are equivalent.
Additional screens not shown include the display of Favourites (e.g. premises the end user wishes to save – perhaps their local establishments) and the ability to “Share the Application” (via email, facebook, twitter and so on).
First up, after launching the application, the user is prompted to search – which allows for a combination of name, use of the users current location (or location of their choice) and business category – allowing (for instance) a query like :
“Find all cafes near me with a name like ‘Coffee’”.
Upon clicking ‘Search’ the application queries a remote server (to ensure up to date results are returned) and returns a results listing – which the user can re-sort instantly :
Alternatively, the user may wish to display the results on a map – such as -
Each map icon is ‘clickable’ – taking the user through to a page showing full details for the specific business.
Now, moving onto another application – here is an example of a simple listing of content (in this case, food supplied by a Butcher).
The user can then select to drill into the detail for a specific item – page transitions were used to provide a ‘native’ feel to the application – even though it’s written in HTML5.
And can also use a ‘cooking calculator’ to help them correctly cook a specific joint/type of meat -
This works by allowing the user to set an alarm/notification once a dynamically computed time has elapsed.
