An app that allows you to reconnect with people you met the night before but in all the excitement forgot to get their detaiuls.
Whatifi co-founder Ken Fitzgerald write
We are a Dublin based Events Reconnection Dating App called Whatifi What we offer is something new in the Dating App space…
We are a next day app. We are the only app that reconnects people that
attended the same events the day after the event. We actually want people
to go out and enjoy themselves and not have their heads buried in their
Whatifi remembers all the places you visit on a night out. The next day your
timeline screen refreshes and shows you all the places you visited the
previous day. Users can then tap on a venue they attended and view all the
other users that were there at the same time.
The user timeline screen is completely private to each user. Only fellow users that attended the same events can contact each other….
Next Train Ireland is a strikingly simple app that will quickly show you train times for any station in Ireland.
Incorporating lovely graphics and a “modern UI that follows the Material Design guidelines” the app’s features include journey planner and realtime station ‘lookup’.
App maker Stephen McBride writes:
Next Train Ireland (formerly called Next DART under the old Android Market store) is one of the earliest Irish-made Android apps, having been released in late 2009 before Android phones were even offered by phone operators in Ireland.
It has gone through a number of iterations since then but has been a bit neglected in the last two years. I finally got around to working on an update a few months ago and, having looked at the mess that was the codebase, decided to re-write it completely from scratch.
Compared to the official Irish Rail app this new app is much cleaner, more intuitive and gets you the information you need in fewer steps.
Feedback from new and existing users is most welcome.
A primary reason why people don’t switch is confusion in selecting the right plan.KillBiller is a mobile application that analyses users’ actual phone usage against all of the plans available from Irish operators.
The app takes details of the calls, messages and data used by you on your phone and, based on this, calculates how much you would have spent on each plan.
Having found the right plan, KillBiller offers users the convenience of switching networks within the app.
Years ago I wrote some scripts to do something similar and the end result was a horrid mess that just about worked. In comparison, what the KillBiller guys have done is slick and actually useful to normal humans.
When I started using dublinbikes more frequently, I couldn’t really find an app that ticked all the boxes for me. Some were focused on showing me a map, others wanted to show me a big long list of really small text that didn’t really make it clear what the situation was in terms of bikes or stands. And forget trying to use the website on your phone when you’re running around town looking for a bike.
Frustrated, I decided to just build my own. I focused on what I find to be the most common situations
It shows you the important details about a station in a giant numbers – How many bikes, how many stands? The list is sorted according to my current location, so I get the more relevant stations at the top. I can mark stations as favourites and show just those ones, again, with the important information highlighted.
If a station gets closed for maintenance (which happens more often than you might think), then I instantly get a notification to let me know and I can plan accordingly.
We saw in the media that Childline were in trouble regarding funding so we thought that we might be able to help somehow. Based on the success of our 99 Finder app, we decided to alter that product and turn it into a “Santa Finder”.
Users can locate the nearest Santa’s Grotto, rate it by giving Santa candy canes, and add Santa Snaps which they can then share through social media.
The main function of the app, however, is to encourage donations to a good cause. Users can easily donate through the app via SMS. We had fun creating the product and we hope plenty of people have fun using it, but most importantly that it helps to raise a good bit of money for Childline.
I’m a self employed Irish app developer and noticed you sometimes feature apps. I’ve made an Irish Lotto app for Android that provides the latest results and notifies you when they’re available, as well as letting you check and re-check your numbers. I’m working on an update but the current version is out now and available to download from the Play store
Released yesterday, ShipAntics – The Legend of the Kiki Beast is the latest puzzle game from Dublin based StoryToys.
They describe it as
ShipAntics stars a madcap crew of seafaring adventurers: Captain Fred, the warm-hearted skipper of the Barnacle, Amanda his precocious, wild and wide-eyed daughter, and Otto, a cheeky young tall-tale touting Octopus. Your orders are to help Amanda and Otto as they venture into the wild blue yonder, solving mysteries and puzzles with Fred and the rest of the crew of the Barnacle.
Which actually boils down to it being a nice little point-and-click type adventure game that reminds me of the glory days of Monkey Island.
It’s a cute little game and the obviously high production values make it a delight to play.
