iPhone App training course from Big Wave Media, 1 June 2011, Dublin

Looking to develop an iPhone app for your business? Then check out the forthcoming training course from Big Wave Media.

On the 1 June they have a one day course for marketing professionals, web masters – in fact anyone interested in an overview of iPhone Apps and the related technology as opposed to the in depth coding experience.

If you are looking to design an App, commission one, or simply looking to find out more about how they are built, and what they can do for you or your business, then this programme looks to be a good overview as it covers the different types of Apps, technologies, the key terminology, the designing and building process, and related terminologies, and typical obstacles.

The app brings news, business, sport and entertainment stories from RTÉ.ie to your mobile including the iPhone or iTouch with 7% of the total downloads recorded are on the Android platform.

Users can also access all local and European weather bulletins as well as marine forecasts and a variety of current affairs programmes.

The comment that “the Irish Election 2011 on RTÉ will be covered extensively with news bulletins, live results from all constituencies and count centres and a series of extra programming including a simulcast of Morning Ireland, Ireland’s most popular current affairs radio show.”

Educational social games on iPhone, the web and the iPhone


Have you children who love joining social networks and playing games online?

I know my children often ask to join a new social netowrk that they have seen advertised on TV. And very often they ask to use my iPhone to play games when we are in the car.

Parents and educators alike often look for warys to make learning fun.

This extensive article from InsideSocialGames.com covers a series of games you will find on the iPhone, Facebook and the web. Thankfully my children aren’t on Facebook yet.

What are your children’s favourite games?
