Submitted to the App Store!

After reading an inspirational post over at I decided to introduce the ability to post scores, fixtures, league table data and news stories to facebook using the amazing Facebook graph API!

After many hours of hard work  RL Live 2011 has been submitted to the App store for approval :)


Aside from the Facebook implementation I spent some time improving the GUI  as follows;

News Reader

I changed the way news stories are displayed, the story is now displayed much quicker than previously.

Added the facebook logo to the table cells, I felt this was the most intuitive way to integrate Facebook as touching the cell already opens the article!

Switched the news provider to the BBC :)

League table

Added tam logos

Added click to post to facebook

Fixtures and Live Scores

Added touch to post to facebook


Added branded facebook button for logging in and out of facebook

I will post a run through on what I learned during this process in the next couple of days but heres how the posts look :)

I am really happy with not just the functionality but I think I really managed to make best use of the UIKit controls to simplify and provide an intuitive workflow that requires no instructions for use!

Until next time thanks for reading, and be sure to subscribe!!
