BackOfficeScheduler

http://backofficescheduler.com
I built this app suite featuring a pair of iOS and Android apps, a bot accessible via Alexa and text messaging, and a .NET core website. I've upgraded it from .NET MVC to .NET Core 2 and 3 and finally to .NET 5, and successfully published the apps and the Alexa bot. I'm rewriting the web and apps to use Blazor (hosted by MAUI Blazor Hybrid) to increase code sharing and speed up development time for a hard launch after beta testing with a few key users.

MAUI Blazor Hybrid Website and App to Manage Guard Services

https://apps.apple.com/us/app/protos-mobile/id1610768348
A Blazor website hosted natively on iOS and Android via MAUI Blazor Hybrid to let guards log in and out of shifts, report incidents, receive pertinent alerts, and conduct building tours by scanning NFC tags, barcodes, or QR codes. It is based on an existing responsive web app but explicitly designed for mobile and equally capable on a web browser or mobile phone except for platform-specific functions like NFC tag scanning.

Video Streaming App and Website

A .NET-based website and accompanying ASP.NET Core app to allow users to stream live video for sports events, including labeling participants, keeping score, and allowing users to tag clips as highlights with the tag type and the player. Other users following that player can watch the games live or reply and view the accumulated highlights for that player or game on the website or app.
