Opening GoodBarber's bag of tricks

Written by on Wednesday, January 30th 2013

With GoodBarber, everybody can create Beautiful Apps. But, being able to provide a software empowering everybody to create a Beautiful App is a long and ambushed way. 

Our technical team is composed by passionate people. Talented mobile developers, experienced network and system engineers, mighty web developers. To build and run GoodBarber, everyday we have to solve complex problems, mainly due to the industrial trait of our product. GoodBarber powers millions of apps, installed, updated, and used all day long.

We would like to share with you - the geek ones ;) - the solutions we find in order to face the issues we come across every day.

Every article published under the "Engineering" serie will deal with an accurate topic regarding iOS, Android, Python, etc..
It could also talk about a generic process that was set up to maintain GoodBarber's industrial trait.

In this blog, over time, and each time we can do it, we will try to explain what's behind the scene and share GoodBarber's bag of tricks.

Stay tuned!

GoodBarber theme: Blow

Written by on Thursday, January 24th 2013

Bloggers, this theme is for you. Use it to unify your web presence.

It was especially crafted for those publishing a high volume of content : news, videos, photos, podcasts, etc.

Looking at the root view, you see that our designer chose a tab bar for the navigation.  But you notice that Blow has also a sub-navigation, with a "circle band", at the top of the screen. Very useful to offer a clear navigation among a lot of content.

In the detailed view, the tool bar is at the bottom. Select the option you want to propose. In this exemple, comments, sharing, font size and add to faves are enable.

Blow is one of the 50+ themes available in your GoodBarber backend. Use it as a starting point to create your Beautiful App .
