Below is a partial list of projects I have worked on recently:
Nature’s Nurture enjoys a quarter-million web hits a month and thousands of social media followers. I built the native iOS and Android mobile apps that provided their users with a better user experience and offline capability for their content. The app also integrated with Google Analytics for granular reporting, provided advanced content search and filtering, favorites and social sharing, and live comments integration.
Integrated Bluetooth connectivity with a proprietary heart rate monitoring device. This involved background tasks and storing millions of heart rates per user using Protocol Buffer compression and real-time syncing to the cloud. Populated iOS and Android charts using downsampling algorithms, multi-threading, and caching mechanisms. Enforced data privacy and security measures for safeguarding medical information.
Pray Watch is a popular, 5-star app that provides the Islamic prayer times in an elegant, modern interface. It is completely localized and displays on a single screen with all prayer times right in front of you on the iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad, and Today Widget. Several features of the devices has been incorporated, including GPS, gyroscope, and notifications using energy efficiency techniques.
The business intelligence (BI) software was using deprecated technology not compatible with mobile devices. More enterprise customers requested key business metrics and reports on their iPad which became a problem. I helped phase out the legacy technology with a modern architecture to provide a cross-platform mobile experience for iOS and Android.
The task was to build a modern, scalable platform to deliver up-to-the-minute information to bus riders across several cities in the US. This covered everything from scheduling to fare collection and passenger information systems. Users can view and select transit routes, and track their buses in real-time using onboard GPS sensors.
The Ontario Energy Board launched a new program that lowers electricity bills for low-income households by providing monthly rebates to eligible customers directly on their invoices. This involved integrations with the Ministry of Finance and over a hundred service utility providers across Ontario using various technologies and standards.
The launch of this app was inspired from uncovering the joys, pains, and realities of mobile, web, and software development. Many of the blog posts dissect this very open-source app and other real-world projects. I built the native iOS and Android apps and are completely open-source.

A Swift framework for rapid development using a collection of utility extensions for Foundation and UIKit classes and protocols, along with associated unit tests. Cross-platform targets for iOS, watchOS, and tvOS and were used across various apps for providing a central and extensible API.
