White Ink – Distraction Free Writing app

The objective was to create a simple web app for distraction free writing in a web browser… the app relies on HTML5 local storage to save the user’s document… we also integrated a MySQL database for user management and backup purposes.

read .mobi files on Android

it’s incredibly easy to open .mobi files on the ipad via dropbox in the kindle app and for some reason that simplicity got lost on Android, as the system doesn’t have to have any file affiliation with said ebook files. anyways, it’s fairly easy as well on android – select the file and go into…

eye-fi and photoshelter

A new client approached pocketrevolution to help out with a photobooth solution for events… the idea was to set up all the photography stuff on location and use an ipad or iphone to take care of the photo transmissions for social media sharing. The client provided an eye-fi card with a compact flash adapter for…

photographer Julio Mitchel approached us to revamp his website sans the existing flash slideshows that won’t display on any iOS (ipad, iphone, ipod) device and many other tablet computers and smartphones. everything was re-coded by hand in plain vanilla html and jquery.

masonry wordpress stacking problem

The other day I intended to create a “pinterest” style wordpress site with a whole bunch of images and a simple “like” button, where I decided to leverage a facebook “like” button for sharing instead of a local wordpress “heart” implementation.

web design for touchscreen mobile devices

In the past couple of years it has become evident that smartphones are gaining support among even non-tech enthusiasts. But only since 2011 have we seen an explosion of mobile sites and mobile-specific templates. The popularity of iPhone and iPad devices along with Android-powered phones means you will have visitors fully interacting with your pages…

responsive design vs. responsible design

most pocketrevolution projects employ automagic image resizing technology to make our customer’s lives easier, especially with self-managed CMS systems… and while many solutions like “timthumb”, “adaptive images” and “tinysrc” come to mind, all are flawed in one way or the other – they may lack in flexibility, or the markup can get messy, or the…

Bonita Labossiere website design

We just finished Bonita Labossiere’s website – she is a voice coach, Feng Shui consultant and also does Breathwork for couples… highly recommended. Bonnie focuses mostly on breath and breathing techniques in either category and our goal was to reflect that in her website design. The website is HTML5 compliant, sports an HTML5/javascript audio player…
