iDailyBooth 1.2 sneak peek

I’m so excited to be a part of the beta test/evaluator team for Martin Bowling‘s latest iPhone app iDailyBooth (app store link). The 1.0 release was pushed out to fill a demand and even Martin says he feels it went out a little too early. Well let me tell you that 1.1 had improvements but 1.2 has even more.

The biggest improvement that I love is speed. There’s been some great tweaks to the user interface that were well thought out. For example when submitting a new photo the buttons have been reordered and the speed to get to the camera is almost instantaneous unlike in 1.0 when it took 15+ seconds.

There’s also the addition of the users photo stream. Now you need to understand some of the background on what’s happening. There’s currently no API to allow quick easy queries so iDailyBooth has been completely developed using available web POST queries. The photos are pulled through a little known RSS feed, so it can take some time to load.

Overall the experience of 1.2 is exponentially greater than previous versions. I’ve also been informed the team at DailyBooth.com is also working on an API and told Martin to start working on iDailyBooth 2.0. I’d suggest you get your feature requests in now. Easiest way is to leave them in the comments below and I’ll be sure to pass them on to Martin.

Vegas baby…

Well finally, after all these years I’m off to Las Vegas for a little fun time. Thanks to TravelZoo we found an amazing deal at the MGM Grand and have booked our reservation. We’ll Fly WestJet and save some cash on the airfare component. We thought about Las Vegas Vacation Packages and Deals that we could get thanks to the fact that Travelocity’s Low Fare Alert searches thousands of flights for fares that can save you 20%* or more on your trip. Then we thought about Last minute Vegas values at Expedia.com! We decided the deal was too good to pass up at $79 a night for the room!! So we’ll hit Amazon.ca for some good reading…yeah right! We’ve already hit Apple Store Canada
numerous times and will have the iPhones charged up and probably even an iPod too. Who knows, next time we might have to hit Beaches Family Resorts
if Grandma and Grandpa aren’t available to babysit again.
