Simple Silent Mode Toggle (Android)

As the title suggests, it’s a simple, lightweight application that toggles your devices “ringer” to vibrate or silent and back again.

The reasoning for this app is, we thought there is always that one person whose phone rings right in the middle of a meeting… You don’t want to be that person. With this app, you simply launch, set to vibrate/silent (“shh…” mode), once your meeting is done, toggle it back again (to “ring ring…” mode). So simple!

Service Details

Hosted Solutions

I can offer discounted hosting packaging by the global leader in Web Hosting Services, Go Daddy. For more complex solutions, I recommend a build in AWS.

Web Development

This is one of my specialities, I’ve been writing, designing, and developing web sites for more than 15 years. I always ensure the quality of mark-up and code within my websites is of a compliant W3 Standard – to put simply, I like my code to be ‘clean’.

The benefit of clean code, apart from being easier to read for any other web master who may end up managing the web site, is that computers love to read clean code, and therefore render your website in the end-user’s browser quicker.

I can develop any web requirement, from a simple static website, to robust dynamic online systems with end-user interaction capabilities.  Some technologies and languages I use in my development are: HTML5, CSS, PHP, ASP.NET, JavaScript, MYSQL, MSSQL, C#.

With the capability of writing in multiple languages, it give me the best opportunity to offer my customers the right technology, for the right result.

Database Development

I can help you organise and streamline your data with custom developed database solutions. Built on industry-leading open source technologies such as MySQL, or robust MSSQL, my database development services will allow your business to centralise data on, or off the web.

CMS Development

Take control of your website or your on-line property with a full Content Management System, to control your entire website. I can develop a customised solution tailored to your needs, or build your website on-top of off-the-shelve solutions, such CMS as WordPress.

Business Intelligence Solutions

Through the use of the powerful Microsoft Business Intelligence Development Suite (MSBIDS), I can provide visual access to your data in a way which you may not know is possible. My BI services range include ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) development – this is to get your data clean and ready for some analysis; Reporting solutions and Analysis services.

I prefer to work with Microsoft’s suite of BIDS tools, however if budget are constrained, then I can recommend suitable open source or custom data reporting solutions.
