  • Food Diary App (Xamarin Forms)

    The most recent phone app, currently available in 42 markets, for iPhone, Android, and UWP.

    The app started on Windows Phone, but was migrated to Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS at first. When Xamarin Forms became available, the whole application was ported to that platform.

  • iPad and Windows App

    This application is being used for factory and oil rig inspections; quality, stability, and ease of use are prioritized.

    It was originally developed for iOS only, with Xamarin.iOS. I worked with the company to port the application to Xamarin Forms for use on multiple platforms. We also delivered several extensions and additional modules.
