Free trials of IdeaJam and IQJam

Category ideajam iqjam trial evaluation
Just a quick blog entry to let you know that we do offer 14 day trials of IdeaJam and IQJam. Every single feature is available for you to use. You can customize the way it looks, use it in Spanish, French, German or any other languages we offer, you can use the API, and much more. The only thing you don't get with the trial is access to the underlying database design.

And if you decide to purchase either product you won't lose any of your test data. You simply get a new license key and access to the unlocked database template.

Site Update: IQJam Product Pages

Category iqjam solutions xpages learn api

We have just completed updating the product pages for our XPages based IQJam application. The pages now include updated screenshots, pricing, documenation, product brochures and more. One surprising fact about IQJam is that many companies are not only using it to share knowledge but also to learn XPages development. Pretty cool.

Let me know if you have any questions about IQJam or would like to schedule a demonstration. We will also soon be posting a demo page showcasing the IQJam API.



Another Satisfied Customer

Category ios xpages mobile mymusicrx
It's always great to open your mail on a Monday morning to be thanked for a job well done. Here is the text of an email we received today from the CEO of The Children's Cancer Association:

The MyMusicRx app that Bruce, Matt, Ben, Gayle and Elguji developed is a part of a very strategic initiative for the Children's Cancer Association. This app enables music lovers to support and soothe seriously ill kids with the purchase of a song. Bruce and the team were so easy to work with and surpassed our expectations in their ability to execute against our vision. I highly recommend them for their ability to understand their customers needs.

Looking to have an app built for iOS?

Category apps mobile ios ipad iphone ipod touch
Today we added a new page to the Elguji site which covers our iOS native app development offering. It also features three apps that we built which are available in the iTunes App Store. We also want to emphasize that we specialize in integrating IBM Notes and Domino data sources including extensive knowledge of XPages. Not using Notes and Domino - not to worry. Integrating your iOS app with other vendors technolgies is not a problem.



MyMusicRx now available in the App Store

Category ios app iphone xpages community mymusicrx cca
We just completed our second iPhone app that uses IBM XPages to serve up and store content for an iOS app. The first app was TSAzr which was released in January 2011 and our new app is called "MyMusicRx".The MyMusicRx app complements the Children's Cancer Associations MyMusicRx website. MyMusicRx is our fourth app in the App Store.

The app allows you to search and purchase music from iTunes. Up to 5% of each purchase will be donated to the Children's Cancer Association. The app also displays "Music Prescriptions" and "Recommended Playlists" where you can purchase the songs that people subscribed and songs from the recommended playlists. The MyMusicRx prescriptions are pulled from the MyMusicRx Facebook app. IBM XPages stores and manages all of the playlist data. It also uses some nifty SSJS and Java to get song data from iTunes using the iTunes Search API. Appcelerator was used to develop this iOS app.

The app was developed with the help of Ben Poole (Java and SSJS), Matt White (XPages), Gayle Elgort (UI and Testing), the Children's Cancer Association and Bruce Elgort (UI, XPages, Appcelerator). All of the development effort was donated.

Here are some screenshots of the app:

V1.1 is currently being developed which will allow songs to be "prescribed" and shared on Facebook. Some other cool features are also being considered.
