Previously I have also worked with Android development (Java) and PHP-based web development, and have also used a number of other languages and frameworks for prototyping or personal projects, including Vue.js, Ionic & Xamarin.

I am continually looking out for and trying out new technologies, following development newsletters and taking online courses, and have set myself the target to learn a new programming language or framework each quarter.

The following are examples of personal projects which I have worked on in my spare time. Some have been developed as commercial products and others are just for fun and learning new tech.

MyPeaks UK Hills (iOS Application)

First launched on the App Store in 2012, MyPeaks is a 'hill bagging' application useful for hill walkers, featuring lists and a map of the UK's hills and mountains, allowing logging and targeting of hill climbs. At the time of writing the app has an average rating of 4.6 stars and is in the Top 40 paid Navigation apps in the app store charts.

Developed as a native iOS application, initially using an SQLite database and recently updated to use Cloud-Kit enabled Core Data.

World Jigsaw (iOS Application)

Launched in 2015, World Jigsaw is interactive puzzle game in which the user drags movable country shapes into their correct location on a world map.

The free app, which at the time of writing has an average rating of 4.3 stars, uses low-level graphics functionality from the Core Graphics framework to handle the rendering and interaction of shapes. It also features save/resume functionality and scoreboards backed by Core Data.

Map Challenge (Mobile / Web App)

A geographical map quiz game, in which users are presented with a series of locations on a map and asked to identify them by name.

I have recreated the app several times to gain exposure to a new technology - first as a native iOS application, secondly as a Xamarin Forms application, thirdly using the Ionic framework, and finally the Unity game engine. The Ionic version is linked to below.

MyPeaks Ionic (Web App)

A prototype created in order to test the feasibility of using Ionic and Angular to produce a cross-platform version of the MyPeaks iOS application mentioned above. As this is a prototype not all functionality may be implemented or work as expected.

Ultimately I have decided that whilst this is feasible, the native map experience and performance on the iOS platform is superior to the web app alternative, so am sticking to the native application for the time being.

Globe Challenge (Web App)

Simple geography quiz web app also using Ionic and Angular. This project involved using freely available data from a wide range of sources including GeoNames, Natural Earth, and Wikipedia, to produce the data driving the app. The Leaflet.js library has been used to create highlightable country outlines for the user to identify from GeoJSON data.
