Welcome to the App World

Today I made my Meetup Search available on the BlackBerry App World.  It is really rough right now and I am very eager to try it out on the BlackBerry PlayBook.  And why do I say I am “eager”, well it is because I will be getting a free PlayBook!  After going through the struggles of trying to create an application and getting the software, I got my app in before the deadline and now it is signed and ready for download.  And because it was in before the deadline and accepted, I qualified for the free PlayBook offer.  Rumors has it, that they will be shipping tomorrow, which would be awesome!

Where do I go from here?  Well, I would like to clean up the Meetup Search:

  • Adjust item layouts and fonts to make sure they work well on the device
  • Add GPS location search option : get the GPS latitude and longitude location and use that instead of zip.  “Meetups near me”
  • Add City Upcoming Events : The City Meetup pages is a nice feature that shows upcoming events, this might be useful
  • Add Map of Meetups search option :  show a map and have Meetups pop up on the map based on search options

I will probably try to add as many search possibilities as possible from the Meetup API and try to keep it up to date.  After that, I need to get OAuth working and start developing the Meetup user and Organizer applications.  In the mean time, I still have a movie to finish editing.
