Over the past few weeks, a Code Camper from this past summer iOS Code Camp session has been bringing it to the App Store. Rick from RSVP Multimedia is a long time reader and Code Camper, an airline point and now an Apple App Developer!
What is really cool about Rick’s story is that he has found a great niche that he is a part of – Airline Pilots. This is great because you don’t really see that many apps for pilots and who better to create an app like that but a pilot. This is a great lesson for your first few apps: find something that you know well and/or are very passionate about. You’ll have a huge leg up on mastering app development and you will outclass our competition.
Here is some more information on Rick’s app ColdCalcPRO
ColdCalcPRO is a Cold Temperature Altitude Correction Calculator that uses the same engine as the ColdCalcMDA app however the “PRO” stands for “Profile”. In addition to the MDA, pilots are also given the HAA, correction and corrected values for the FAF as well as the Missed Approach & FPA ! ColdCalcPro is oriented in landscape mode maximizing the iPhone screen size to clearly visualize your altitudes on the approach profile.
Private pilots to Airline pilots will welcome the ease of use of this much needed utility ! Simply input your Airport Elevation, Charted FAF, MDA, M/A & FPA then simply “slide” in the airport temperature and you immediately have the HAA, correction to be applied as well as the corrected FAF, MDA, M/A & FPA to set ! Move the slider and see the corrections change dynamically in realtime .
Very Simple, Very Clean & Very Accurate !
Congratulations Rick! You can purchase Rick’s app from the Apple App Store by clicking here.
Hear What Rick Had to Say About iOS Code Camp
WHAT CAN I SAY MATT ! JUST LOOK AT MY TWO SUCCESSFUL APPS ON THE APP STORE!
“What can I say Matt ! Just look at my two successful apps on the App store ! Your course was clear, informative and very personal. Helping us along with live answers to our frustrating mess-ups was first class & would have taken days if not weeks to figure out through books.
Your course was worth every penny and then some. After all that, you award us with s “Lifetime Membership” WOW ! Code Camp is a true no brainer !!!!!!!”
