Mr.Robbo has begun developing a offshoot website for app development. The website can be visited via www.thepegeekapps.com and provides a variety of ways for users to interact and gather assistance surrounding any of the apps for PE teachers.
In the past year Mr. Robbo havs received numerous emails asking the best and easiest way to go about designing ‘apps’ for classes etc. The question varies depending on what type of functionality they desire, however for anyone looking to build an app that links together content from multiple web sources such as RSS Feeds, YouTube videos, twitter accounts etc then he recommends two tools to get this done in a matter of minutes.
1) Web Apps – The benefit of building a web app is the fact that they are designed for multiple devices, meaning that anyone with internet access can access the app by simply visiting the URL while on their device. They also offer some of the basic features of native apps with an increased level of flexibility. For a step by step video guide to building your own app and making it accessible in a matter of minutes. Check out the video below.
2) Native iOS/Android and Windows Phone Apps – If your craving a little more flexibility in your apps and would prefer to follow the official route in terms of submission to the app store and android market, then you might be interested in the “The App Builder”.
Mr. Robbo has had a great idea to come up with such ways to create apps for teachers. This movement has already made great strives to help teachers use technology in the classroom. Most of the apps have seemed to amaze me. I am really looking forward to seeing whats next.
