Teesnap

Mediafly

I created the UI and internal logic for the video and audio playback, PDF documents, and image presentation. I developed a drawing instrument used for creating annotations, and implemented an algorithm for making the drawn line smoother. I also secured user data and downloaded content, anti-piracy protection. I also implemented interaction with a second screen, minor UI changes, and a custom URL protocol for interaction with stored HTML packages. This project allowed me to acquire experience working with RESTful services.

Shiftme.to

This is a universal application that did not use xibs. I optimized the data caching and retrieving, map view, map annotations, and overall UI interaction performance. I also handled authentication, registration, and the user info editing mechanism in the application, as well as the UI and server interaction.

Alcohoot

I implemented part of the UI and interactions with Google Places API and Yelp API. Due to issues with places providers, I implemented custom map view controllers with the same interface so that native maps and Google Maps could be easily interchanged.

Finance Control

This was one of the first projects in which I participated. Many things have changed since then, but I learned a lot during its creation.
