Send push notification to iPhone with PHP and pushme.to
August 11, 2010 @ 13:15:14

In a new post to his blog Giulio Pons talks about how to send push notifications to an iPhone using the pushme.to application installed on the user's phone.

Push service is a technology that allows you to send alerts/notifications to a mobile device. Blackberry has its own push service, iPhone has its own, and also Android devices has their own push services. [...] I want to send push to my iPhone, but I'm not able to develop an iPhone application that receive push alerts, and I don't want to send only email alerts.

You set up the application on your phone and make a widget on their site for your application to use. Included in the post is also the PHP you can use to connect to the pushme.to service (using a curl POST request to send form encoded info to their servers).

Dougal Campbell's Blog:
Geolocation Plugin for WordPress
May 06, 2010 @ 08:52:10

In a recent post to his blog Dougal Campbell has posted about a geolocation plugin for WordPress that will let you automatically tag your posts based on here you are.

This Geolocation Plugin will be a nice addition for people who do travel blogging or who write about things in a particular area (restaurant and business reviews, hyperlocal news, etc).

The power of this plugin comes when you're using a device with a GPS in it (like an iPhone) that can feed the information into the plugin. The result is a link that users can hover over and get a map of the location.

Phil Sturgeon's Blog:
Send iPhone notifications from CodeIgniter
November 23, 2009 @ 15:19:56

Phil Sturgeon has posted a fun little script CodeIgniter users can use to connect their application with Prowl.

Most web-applications currently use automated e-mail's to let an administrator know someting is going on and some applications use Twitter. Why not use iPhone Push Notifications to get an alert to you immediately without having to check a thing?

He threw together a quick library that only requires a username, password and application name to set the messages. You can download the sample library directly from Github

Evan Sims' Blog:
Automattic releases WordPress for iPhone
July 22, 2008 @ 11:13:04

AS Evan Sims mentions on his blog today, Automattic has released a version of WordPress for the iPhone (a client to connect to your remote blogging system).

There are a least a half dozen plugins for creating a more hospitable environment for managing your content on the iPhone, but quite honestly the quality of the ones I'd tried left a lot to be desired.

He noes that the application is "polished, official and completely native" and includes features that allow you to take a picture with the phone's camera and embed it directly into the post you're writing. Check out the sample video of it in action on an iPhone. You can download it from the App Store for free.

CSS Tricks:
Create a Slick iPhone/Mobile Interface from any RSS Feed
July 17, 2008 @ 10:22:55

On the CSS Tricks blog there's a recent article showing how to combine the jQuery Javascript library and the SimplePie PHP feed aggregator to create a iPhone/mobile interface to any RSS feed.

We are going to create a web page that is formatted specifically for the iPhone (but would presumably be good for other mobile devices as well). This web page will dynamically fill itself with content from any RSS feed that you give it. The interface is going to be built to be easy to use on a mobile device, with large "touchable" areas and nice (jQuery) animations that whisk you between articles.

They work through the process - five simple steps:

  • Create the iPhone Environment
  • Pull in the RSS Feed
  • Creating the Front Page: Headlines Only
  • Creating the Article Pages: jQuery Slider Style
  • Adding Some Flair

All code and images needed are included (as well as a demo if you'd like to try it out).

Symfony Blog:
How to create an optimized version of your website for the iPhone in symfony 1.1
June 12, 2008 @ 14:24:10

With the recent stir caused by the new iPhone, it's only natural that developers are looking for easy ways to make their sites as compatible as possible with the mobile platform. The Symfony project has posted a guide to helping you make your apps optimized for mobile use.

symfony 1.1 introduces native support for different formats and mime-types. This means that the same model and controller can have different templates based on the requested format. The default format is still HTML but symfony supports several other formats out of the box as defined in the factories.yml file.

Using this system, it's easy to add new output formats by adding to the default layouts the framework comes equipped with. The Content-Type can be changed and layouts can be disabled as needed. This lets you make a custom definition just for use with the iPhone without a lot of hassle.

They also include an example of how to make one of these optimized layouts, including some iPhone "screenshots" of the resulting pages.

The Bakery:
PremierMarinas.com, ScienceHack.com and an iPhone App
July 06, 2007 @ 14:15:19

On The Bakery today, there's three new examples of how the CakePHP framework was used to create three very different types of sites - PremierMarinas.com, ScienceHack.com and a simple iPhone-compatible application.

  • In the first article they describe how they built a "powerful, full featured CMS" to allow their customers to login and work with their personal information. It included the use of JSON messaging and the use of dynamic libraries.
  • The article for the second site talks about the creation of a search engine for science videos to provide a more reliable resource for fellow video enthusiasts. He talks about what all he learned in the process and the design of the application. Check out the end result here.
  • Finally, the third article talks about the creation of an application for the iPhone - "an app that would allow other users to add RSS feeds and I could go look for some and add them to my collection". He details the process he went through to create the application and the modules that he used to accomplish it.

Check out the rest of The Bakery for more great CakePHP-related articles and tutorials.
