Gohan Roadmap

with one comment

For those who are interested…

Upcoming release will include:
– Photos (stay tuned, this is a major change)
– Restaurant information reporting (a more appropriate way to report things like shop-is-closed etc.)
– Hot topics (nothing will go to dark hole, your reviews will be shown up here, don’t worry)
– More (if have time, which is unlikely)

Thanks for everyone who spent your precious time to write review(s). Thanks for those who reported “Shop is Closed!!!”, I will be constantly updating the database. Thanks for those who wrote me email and gave useful feedback. Last but not least, thanks for those who installed this application. Your support is crucial to this application.

Fragile Development

with 2 comments

Gohan and Reading follow closely to fragile development process, which is known for:

– No unit testing
– No continuous integration
– No documentation
– No code comment
– No code style checking
– No pair programming
– No user story
– No stupid story cards (no wasting of natural resources)
– No iteration planning
– No morning stand-up

My thought just works.

Offline Reading. Illegal? Or not?

Quoted from Yahoo! HK user agreement:
“你同意不會把本服務的任何部分(包括你的雅虎帳號),本服務的使用或登陸本服務複制、保留副 本、抄襲、出售、買賣、轉賣或利用作為任何商業用途。”

BUT

“雅虎透過雅虎網絡為用戶提供豐富的線上資源,包括各種通訊工具、線上論壇、購物服務、搜尋 服務、個人化內容及品牌程式設計(「本服務」)”

咁提供新聞內容算係「本服務」定唔係呢?

Yahoo! HK 每頁底部都有 “© 2008 Yahoo! Hong Kong Limited. 版權所有 不得轉載” 我以上既 quotation 又算唔算係轉載?

App Store Deployment Experience So Far

with 2 comments

沮喪、失望、憤怒。

由申請 iPhone Developer Program 到正式獲得批准,足足等左一個月。

由遞交第一個程式,到忍唔住 send email 去追,到最後出現 App Store,前後又等多一個月。

期間一封 confirmation / acknowledgement email 都冇收倒,所有野去晒黑洞。

比 99 蚊美金出嚟,免費為人寫軟件,再換來一堆不滿與無奈。咁傻仔嘅事真係無幾多人去做。

P.S.

Having said that, developing on iPhone is enjoyable.

Gohan 1.0 Released

with one comment

on 16th November 2008, Gohan 1.0 suddenly got approved and available on App Store too! Of my surprise, things just happened.

The name Gohan 御飯情報, is coming from Japanese ご飯情報. The appropriate pronunciation of this name should be somewhat like “哥慳” in Cantonese.

version 1.0 supports most basic searching and information lookup of restaurants, nothing fancy, so stay tuned for the upcoming versions.

Reading 1.0 Released

leave a comment »

on 14th November 2008, Reading 1.0 finally got approved and is available at App Store.

Reading is a very simple Yahoo! HK RSS news reader. I started this project merely out of my own fun. Also because I owned a mac and iphone.

Hope you find it useful.
