MSK view, for iOS and Android

I’ve been work­ing on an app for a French sport hos­pi­tal, designed to browse its msk image library. It’s called “MSK view” and it is avail­able for free in iTunes (iPhone and iPad ver­sion) and in the Android Mar­ket.

Pretty tech­ni­cal stuff in it, not sure every­one will want to install it but hey, there may be some doc­tors out there!

The hos­pi­tal is French but the app is both in French and Eng­lish. Built in Flash Builder with Flex Mobile, Robot­legs and AMFPHP, UI design by Jumo.

Now go show off brows­ing images of “Scapho­trapezial Syn­os­to­sis” or “Rec­tus Femoris intra­mus­cu­lar Haematoma”, what­ever it may be!

Hey, 2011 is here folks! Go grab you favorite QR Code reader and decrypt this tag, fool. QR Reader links on the greet­ing card page.

Paper

Intro­duc­ing my lat­est project: TW Paper, a sim­ple iPhone/iPod touch wall­pa­per gallery+collection.

paper-blog-post

A lit­tle bit of JavaScript and some Photoshop/CSS trick­ery to present a grow­ing col­lec­tion of images designed for your favorite piece of technology!

The page also works on iPhone/iPod touch but looks a lit­tle dif­fer­ent for bet­ter usabil­ity. Just tap+hold on the image to save it.

Paper on iPhone

Expect the gallery to evolve, with new images and quotes!

Flash+iPhone!

Quick news, good news. Devel­op­ing for the Apple iPhone using Flash is now pos­si­ble, hell! Read more here and there.

Expect me to build stuff with it!

eduMonkey

My first iPhone app is finally online!

eduMonkey

edu­Mon­key is an iPhone ver­sion of an old toy that we (at edu­Me­dia) love and first con­verted to a Flash sim­u­la­tion

The (free) app is both an addi­tion and a mul­ti­pli­ca­tion table ; giv­ing you (in the hands of the mon­key) the result of the oper­a­tion between 2 num­bers (under the feet). Sim­ply drag the feet and see the result. Noth­ing too crazy but hey, it’s my first app!

Go get it, fool!

eduMonkey Credits

Show it to your teacher, talk about it to your pals, have fun with it and share thoughts… Because I love feedback.

By the way, I dis­cov­ered this toy via Cuarto Derecha, thanks buddies!

Kwot

A new project is online! It’s called Kwot, and it allows you to share and store your favorite quotes.

The UI is quite min­i­mal­is­tic, with focus on sim­plic­ity. Nav­i­gate through quotes with your mouse wheel, your keyboard’s left and right arrow or the mini time­line at the bot­tom. Add a quote by click­ing on the plus but­ton at the bot­tom right hand cor­ner. If you don’t pick any color they’ll be auto­mat­i­cally cho­sen via a magic algo­rithm! Another magic algo­rithm will rotate your quote in 3D space. But don’t worry you will pre­view that in real-time, ha!

I might add user (login) sup­port, lan­guage tag­ging, an RSS feed and stuff like that but don’t expect that too soon, hol­i­days are coming!

If you don’t have the Flash plu­gin or if you visit the site on an iPhone the site will look quite dif­fer­ent but every­thing will remain!

A few things I used in case you won­der: swfad­dress (you will love deep-linking!), GTween, FlashDe­velop, AMFPHP, the view­port width attribute… Oh, and by the way, the font face is called Neu­tra.

Add some quotes and drop feedback!

Apple Touch icon

I’m home, sick, so I’ve had time to do some­thing I should have done ear­lier: add an Apple Touch icon to the site. So here’s what it looks like!

Despite what the offi­cial docs say, I’ve fol­lowed Play­ground Blues’ advice. So my apple-touch-icon.png is 158x158 pixels.

Geeky post? True.

MobileMe UI chops

As you prob­a­bly know, MobileMe (by Apple) is online, and for you UI design freaks here’s food! The URL might change so I stored it

The file is a huge PNG file (32×6042) with UI ele­ment chops. Enjoy a (remas­tered) preview:

iPhoned

Guess what. I got an iPhone. Thanks edu­Me­dia.

I might write some Web Apps, or even native ones… If I feel creative!

iPhone

Syn­chro­niz­ing Gmail con­tacts, adding a Google Apps mail account and Palm cal­en­dar events was not that easy (on Win­dows), in case you won­der how to do: read on!

For some of these steps you’ll need a Yahoo account and Microsoft Out­look… I know.

Gmail con­tacts

  1. Go to Gmail
  2. Switch to Con­tacts view
  3. Export them (tiny link on the bottom-left cor­ner of the page), choose the “Out­look CSV” option
  4. Store the .csv file on your hard drive
  5. Go to Yahoo Mail (I used the “Clas­sic” UI)
  6. Switch to the Con­tacts tab
  7. Go to Import/Export (top-right corner)
  8. Choose “Out­look CSV” as the import pro­gram and browse to select the .csv, then import
  9. Now go to iTunes, make sure your iPhone is plugged in and selected the left pane
  10. Go to the Info tab
  11. Check the “Sync con­tacts with” and select “Yahoo address book”, you’ll be asked for your login and password
  12. Now apply set­tings and sync…
  13. Here you are!

You might notice that some char­ac­ters (like French or Span­ish ones) are replaced by ugly things. That’s because Gmail doesn’t out­put an UTF-8 CSV…

Adding a Google Apps mail account

This one is quite sim­ple, as you’ll notice.

  1. In the iPhone set­tings, go to “Mail”
  2. Add an account
  3. A Gmail one
  4. Enter your set­tings but spec­ify the entire e-mail address (user@my-company.com)
  5. That’s it!

Import Palm cal­en­dar events

Once again, make sure you have a Yahoo account. And for this one you’ll also need Microsoft Out­look. Sorry.

  1. Open Palm Desktop
  2. Switch to Cal­en­dar view
  3. File > Export, save the .dba file on your hard drive
  4. Go to Yahoo Mail, and select the Cal­en­dar tab
  5. Go to Options, and “Import/Export”
  6. Browse to your .dba file in the “Import from Palm Desk­top” section
  7. When done, go back to that “Import/Export page” and scroll to the “Export to Out­look” section
  8. Export
  9. Open Out­look (you can use the trial ver­sion for free)
  10. File > Import and Export > Out­look > Import from another pro­gram or file > Next > Comma Sep­a­rated Val­ues (Win­dows) > Next > Browse to your .csv > Next > Select “Cal­en­dar” > Next
  11. Events should now be imported, make sure every­thing is OK, espe­cially the dates because they might have slided a bit. You might also see extra com­mas at the end of some event names…
  12. Now open iTunes, make sure your iPhone is plugged in and selected the left pane
  13. Check “Sync cal­en­dars with” and select “Outlook”
  14. Apply set­tings and sync…
  15. That should be it!

You’ll also notice some UTF-8 odd­ness… Damn!
Wow, could have been easier!
