near is an Augmented Reality type mobile app, displaying locations 3 ways: AR view, map and list. It is a Cordova based app, and the code is written in HTML, CSS, jQuery.
We did test the app on Android, and it works very well, I didn’t tested in iOS yet, and that’s why I am selling this as an Android app so far, but as the app is based on Cordova, I don’t think there will be any issues for iOS version.
The price is the starting one, if you would like to support our work in the early stages, you can PURCHASE the app at this point, and you will receive lifetime updates FOR FREE. With each update the price will be increased.
The docs contain a short tutorial on how to setup your computer to use Cordova apps and also how to submit your apps to the market (both iOS and Android).
I am thinking to add:
- custom server solution API + Admin Area / Dashboard
- Location owner submission
– Google Places API instead of Foursquare
- User ratings and reviews / comments
- better design and UI
The app is well documented.
The app uses the FourSquare API to get venues. You can create your own data source on your server if you are familiar with PHP and JSON data. There is no framework involved in production to handle the app look, just plain HTML, CSS and jQuery, easy to use and modify. There is also an easy way to customize the look of the map, only by changing the color codes, everything explained in the docs.
