Projects

PowerLV

This project is the largest app that i've written so far, it can be thought of as a social media / weightlifting companion. I first created the app to help track my progress in the gym but have expanded it to support user authentication, follower/following system, content management, media storage, audio/video playback and over-the-air (OTA) updates to name a few. The progress that I've made with this app actually encouraged me to formally create my own name to develop apps under, Notso Software.

BlogsVille

This is the first app that I've designed, developed and published, its also where I spent a lot of my time in the early days of my development journey. The inspiration behind the app is pretty simple, I spent so much time listening to podcasts I went ahead and built my own media streaming app. The app is my idea of what a personal blog / podcast would look like, it features a user authentication, a custom dashboard and supports over the air updates.
