The learning application – Lovur

To learn more about HTML5/JS and understanding how things fit together I’ve decided to implement a trivial application in Cordova using the Ionic framework.

The application is a port of a simple game we used to play when I was a kid, where the goal is to calculate the Love between two people based on their name (or probabilityLoves of success in a relationship or whatever.. I don’t quite remember). Anyhow, the application is simple enough for me not spending time on the algorithm (even though I’ve of course improved it to utilize some of the computing power available) and to learn a thing or two on HTML5/JS Mobile Application development, more specifically:

  • The Cordova Environment
  • MVC pattern of angular.js
  • Plugins in cordova
  • Using Google Analytics in a Cordova application
  • Using AdMob in a Cordova application
  • Customizing the look and feel of Ionic
  • Localization support
  • Sharing to Facebook/Twitter with Cordova
  • Releasing an application on Play Store

I guess these are reasonable goals for a first application.. I will report back here on the progress
