Add Apple iBeacon Technology To Your App

  • iBeacon

What is iBeacon?

iBeacon is the Apple solution for location awareness that is integrated with a customers iOS device and opens up a world of mobile business opportunities. It’s relatively new technology and those who can adopt this new standard in mobile advertising can quickly can steal a march on their competitors.

The iBeacon hardware is a low cost, low power bluetooth device that broadcasts a signal that can, when combined with Apple location services, alert an app as you approach to listen out for a iBeacon signal. Once the app receives this signal it can trigger an action.

How can it work for me in my sector?

Museum, Heritage Site or Institution? If you are a museum you could alert your customers as they pass in the street of a new collection that has opened in the last few days. If they are already inside the museum you can alert them to additions to a collection that have been added since their last recorded visit. If you are a heritage site that has recently finished restoring an area you can remind visitors as they drive through the front gates not to miss a newly opened room and provide information on its history and contents direct to the phone.

School or University? Educators can use iBeacons to alert students when entering a specific educational area of the expected behaviour or help new students to navigate around the school. As a student is entering a classroom or lecture theatre, they can have the relevant syllabus materials delivered to the device.

Retail Store? If you are a retailer, you can broadcast an exclusive offer to your app users as they approach the door even if they were initially only planning on passing by. If they are already inside the store you can let them know of new products as they are passing the display unit or if they have a history of being a coffee lover then entice them to try the new exclusive brand available in the cafe.

Health & Safety? For restricted, dangerous or those areas that require PPE an alert could be displayed on the users phone as they approach the area and if they continue a notification could be sent to an authority to alert them of this danger.

There are so many possibilities with this technology. Combine the data collected on customer movements from these devices with buying patterns held in the app this can all provide valuable data on the behaviour of your customers.

App Game Development - Splitty Kitty for iOS and Android

  • Splitty Kitty - iOS and Android app game development

App Game Development

Split them kits, then pop their balls. Splitty Kitty is a cross platform iOS and Android app game development, that features power ups, in-app purchases and its own in-app currency. Swipe to split a kit, then tap to pop. Unpopped balls turn back into kitties, try and clear the screen as more kitties fire on. Furious feline action. Don’t let them ruin your life!

Splitty Kitty is both fun to play but just as importantly the in-app purchases and advertising enables the app to make money. The Splitty Kitty app project also included a social media marketing package, ensuring the app will achieve the downloads required to make the development profitable.

Other features include leaderboards and achievements using iOS Game Center and Android Google Play Games.

Developing An App – Episode 5 – Documenting Your Brief

Before you engage with any potential development partner you need to collate all your thoughts and aspirations for your app coherently ready for presentation. Do not concern yourself with details such as what development language should be used because this is something the developers will manage and provide advice on. Your role at this stage is to provide a concise brief to communicate exactly what you would like to start the ball rolling. You don’t have to be technical to do this, just try to explain what you want your app to do.

Start with a simple requirement and expand on each descriptive within that requirement. For example your initial simple requirement may be;

I wish to develop an app that allows users to share their experiences skydiving.

This, in a nutshell, is a statement of what you would like. Now we need to expand on each of the key points in this statement;

‘app’ – would this be Android or Apple or both? Do you need a website too? Would the website allow anyone to view skydivers and their experiences?

‘users’ – would these users need to be registered? Do we need to allow registration of those users and allow them to create a profile? Then take a selfie?

‘share’ – share with friends and/or other users only? Would this be on social media or just within the app? Could people follow you and get notifications of updates?

‘experiences’ – would this be text only or take/upload pictures? upload video? would be need a blog running up the event?

‘skydiving’ – are they doing this simply or pleasure or is it for charity? do we need to reference a donation site? do we accept donations?

So now we have asked these questions the new updated requirement would look like this with the original text in bold to illustrate how we have expanded it;

I wish to develop an Android and iOS app that allows users to create an account with their main details in it including a photo via the app or a website to share with their friends on social media, via the skydiving website or app with their experiences posted via blog updates leading up to the event containing video and pictures of their  skydiving experience and give then links to their donation page if they are  doing this for charity.

We can see this is a lot more detailed than the original version and you need to carry on like this expanding and refining the detail where you can up to a point where you think you have added as much as you can think of. If we now analyse this last version of the requirement, it is probably one very long sentence with a few grammar issues but it does not matter. You now need to edit this text and you will find you have a clear initial brief of your app that any potential development partner would be pleased to receive as an initial starting point. You will also find that some information is duplicated but that is also fine and expected – remember the software developer will be creating a formal specification, pathways document and wireframes for you.

From our skydiving example you could have something like the following:

I wish to develop an Android and iOS app with accompanying website for the skydiving community to come together and share their experiences.

The app and website will allows users over the age of 16 to create an account with their main details such as Name, Address, email, gender, DOB and personal statement. They could also register using their social media or Google Account. They can assign a profile photo taken by the camera on the phone or uploaded from the Gallery. If they are doing a skydive for a charity they can register this date, give the event a description, enter a donation page link and their financial target. They can search for and follow other app users who could be there on the same date for the same reason and join their event, therefore when creating an event they need an alert if one already exists so they can join it. Once they follow another user or join an event, that users blog updates will be shared with them or followers. The user can also be notified of any other users who log that they are skydiving that same date, the same event and follow them if they wish.

To share their experiences with their friends who are not using the skydiving app, the app will allow connection to their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts either upon account creation or at a later stage. When linking their account to social media, the app will post an update to those accounts saying this user has downloaded the skydiving app to let their friends know they are taking a skydive, what date and if it’s is a charity event the links to the donation page. 

Their experiences can be recorded using the apps own blog containing text, emojis, video and pictures. When a post occurs on the blog this can update other app users who are following them or the event via notifications and an email too. The users who see these posts can also respond once again with text, emojis, video and pictures. Their linked social media accounts can also be updated from a blog post but this could be disabled on a post by post basis.

When leading up to their skydiving date, app users who follow them and social media can be reminded at 7 days and 1 day to give generously for their good cause with links to their donation page if they are doing this for charity. Once they have completed the jump they can flag the charity event as being complete and send a message to all app users who followed them and their social media pages thanking for their support.
