Auckland Ferry App
Frustrated with the AT app and the local ferry service website, I built myself an iPhone app to keep track of the ferry timetable. The idea was to create a simple, clean experience that would provide information quickly at a glance. It utilises the device's geo location display the nearest departure point for added usability.
Having no previous experience with app design I found myself having to learn xcode, a new piece of software to me. Even more of a challenge was learning a new programming language ObjectiveC which is significantly different to any other language I have used.
It is always rewarding to see a program 'working' after a long struggle especially one that incorporates real world data and variables such as location and time. What is really nice is being able to see that other people are downloading the app and finding it useful.
