A Mobile Phone App Specification

The following cards define the specification for a simple taxi cab trip tracking application for a mobile phone platform. This is the sort of thing we could implement easily across multiple platforms (iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Symbian, and Palm WebOS) using custom code and tools like Rhomobile's Rhodes framework.

Look at these cards from two perspectives. First, what do you think of the idea? If a lot of people like it, we might make it. Second, consider that this is typical of the detail we need before we start working with a client to begin an engagement. We would take diagrams like these, break them into small, prioritized user stories and features, then start development that same afternoon.

This is the main screen for the application.

Google's Nexus One Android smartphone may be the turning point for Android in its battle for respect from the otherwise iPhone-carrying set of consumers.

Smartphone Applications

Do you have any experience of developing smartphone apps?


Adam Blum
CEO, Rhomobile
We have a mobile platform development team. We develop for iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Symbian, and Palm WebOS. Our iPhone team has particular strength in geo-location and mapping applications. We have also been selected by Palm, Inc. as a recommended phone application developer.

We can create iPhone apps directly in native Objective C. See Abbott Labs' Similac Mom application on the Apple App Store.

Our current preference is to develop apps using the HTML5 oriented Phonegap system. This allows us to continue to use our full set of strong Behaviour Driven Development (BDD) and Test Driven Development (TDD) practices to create while developing for iPhone and other mobile...
