GP Race Fan app - approved today for Apple and Android

Feeling happy today as Apple just approved the update for my GP Race Fan app first time round, which for this app is a first. I also updated the Android version.

Iím particularly proud of the News section. It aggregates news from several places using SimplePie and displays using the RD RS plugin (on ios). On Android I wrote some php/html to achieve something similar. I used to use Yahoo Pipe to combine the feeds and after they closed it down I looked for ages before I could find a tool that could achieve a similar result.

I also found a good 5-day weather feed for the circuits from openweathermap.com, that displays using JavaScript/html. Being part of the BT community has helped me to improve my programming skills, I realise I am doing things that 12 months ago I couldn't.

Mostly, Iím just happy to make it to the app store in time for the F1 season opener.

Have a look, itís a free, http://aq.be/4dfd9f

Cheers, Alan

On my way!

Superb timing and cross platform brother. Remember you doing the F1 a while back.

Wish you all the success in the world with it. Just updated my first app as wel and got approved first time round but need to fix some issues that apple missed before I make it live.

Would like to chat about RSS with you at some stage, maybe a paid chat? Good feeds.

Awesome wee Friday email to start the weekend .

Will drop you a line from home tonight. Had a good play with your app and it does have some really slick screens.

Crazy crash at the weekend, seeing someone walk away from that roll was crazy.
