Got QR?

BustedAppZ! QR Code
Scan this with your iPhone or Android Phone

We do!  QR codes are becoming more and more popular.  Their typical use is directing traffic to a website.  If you run a website and want people to be able to view it using their mobile devices (mainly iPhone and Android devices), add a QR code to your link and let people scan it.  Most of the current “smart” phones have free (and paid) barcode or QR code scanning apps available for them.  To take advantage of them you must post a QR image, like this!  (It sounds like Windows Phone Series 7)

It’s actually very simple to setup, there are websites out there that have eveything you need to set one up.  It takes less than a minute.  We used Kaywa and their free QR-Code Generator, they allow you to set the code to link to a URL, MMS, Phone Number or Text message.  Give it a shot and let us know how it goes.

Very Cool Multi-Player, Mulit-Platform Game

We stumbled upon this great game for Android and iPhone.  Bet thing about it, you can play multi-player against friends on both Android phones and iPhones!

There’s a free version (Homerun Battle 3D Free), a paid version Homerun Battle 3D and now a second free version named Homerun Battle 3D Free +100GB.  I’ve played 2 ou of three of them and both great.  Not only are they cross platform but you can play free against paid and so on.

Download it on iTunes here.

or Go to Android Marketplace on your device and search Homerun Battle!

Are We Developing The Next HALO Game?

Visit The Halo Website

We all know the HALO series and the guys at Bungie, wouldn’t it be great if you had that same success? 

BustedAppZ! is currently working on our first game launch.  Right now we are in early development and the first line of code is yet to be written but we have high hopes.  We spent more time studying the current hits on the Android, iPhone and even BlackBerry markets, hours, days, weeks! (not really weeks but that sounded impressive).  Our goal it to figure out what you want, feel convinced you’ll play it and hope that you enjoy it for a long time.  Currently our plan includes a complete series covering all ages.  Simple, addictive and fun; sound like a good game?  You’ll just have to wait and see.

BustedAppZ! will be attending the digiday:MOBILE show the week of March 8th, in Los Angeles and the E3 show later this year, also in Los Angeles.  Working hard to get it right!

Android, iPhone and now Windows Phone 7 – What will you develop for?

As an app development company we will have to make a choice of what (who) to develop apps for.  At some point there has to be a judgement call made, will it be cost effective for us to develop for all 3 platforms?  Here’s just a couple of items we will consider when making these decisions:

Is the UI the same?  Will controlling our app be similar on all 3 platforms? (remember KISS)
Can we use the same graphics files on all systems?
Do all 3 platforms have the same user type? (gamers, day to day, enterprise, kids)
How will the Microsoft team regulate app deployment?
Can the application be profitable? 
Only time will tell, at this time next year will BustedAppZ! be as excited about building for Windows Phone 7 as we are to build for Android today?

Building You A Secure App

We are currently working on a couple of new apps that require us to secure them.  At first thought it didn’t seem like much of a concern because it would be password protected but we really want the user to be reassured.  Keeping secure information in your mobile device is inevitable but is it really secure?

Just like any security if someone wants it bad enough odds are there’s a way to get it whether it is a car stereo or your personal information.  At BustedAppZ! we are committed to fun, simple and safe mobile applications.  Our programmers are highly skilled and our management team is thorough.  You can bet that any app from us can be trusted.  Unlike many other applications that collect your personal information our apps don’t, we earn our money from the sale of advertising or the app itself.

We hope you continue to enjoy our products whether educational, entertaining or a utility!
