• iOS Contact ListView for Android

    It has been a long time since I wrote some open source projects. Just finish writing this small UI project for Android in these few days which simulates the look and feel of iOS Phone Contacts View. It is not exactly the same though. I have taken most of the code from IndexScroller in IndexableListView project and rewritten it so that it is more customizable and easier to use. The main features include:

    • Alphabet section headers with auto-sorting
    • Search bar
    • Customizable Indexed sideview. The rounded background container can be hidden as...

  • Platform as a service (OpenShift & Appfog) future

    Having used both OpenShift and Appfog in the scope of various small projects, I like both of them. The services enables developers to quickly start developing apps without worrying about time consuming server configurations. They also promise to be able to scale your app which I tend to not agree :)
