About Me

I have been enjoying developing native iOS apps since 2009, building a strong understanding of Objective-C, many of Apple’s frameworks, and their design patterns.

Owing to the experience of developing, designing, and marketing multiple successful apps, I have gained a broad and deep knowledge of the end-to-end delivery processes in this space.

Having earned a PhD in mathematics from the University of London, I have a learned understanding of problem solving, algorithm and proof.

Whether you just want to know how to get home, or how many trains are running on the Central line on a saturday afternoon (66, by the way), Tube Tracker will provide everything you need to upgrade your ‘tourist’ status to ‘Commuter’.

Tube Tracker is focused on providing the most current and detailed information about every train and every line on the Tube network. Our servers remain in constant contact with TfL, requesting live information every few seconds. Behind the scenes, we analyse the data and provide more useful information for travellers. For example, not every platform has a departure board, but Tube Tracker is able to create one by examining inbound trains from neighbouring stations.

There are a plethora of features that even work offline. For instance, using just a GPS location, we can guide you to any station by telling you how far away you are, and in which direction you need to walk.

Also, Tube Tracker is the first and only app which allows your friends to track the progress of your journey - simply send them a tracking link before you go underground, or use the platform WiFi.

Tube Tracker is available now worldwide on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, for iOS 5 or later, from the App Store for £1.99.

    Learn about, create and share Latin squares, one of the most fun areas of advanced mathematics, with this interactive resource.
    Show more detail

    A Latin square is an (n x n) grid of cells. Each cell contains exactly one symbol from the set S = {1, 2, ..., n}. If you look down any column, or across any row of the Latin square, you'll see every symbol precisely once. If you've ever completed a Sudoku puzzle, then you've built a Latin square on the symbols {1, 2, ..., 9}.

    This app provides comprehensive coverage of the field of Latin squares, including:

    • Theory,
    • Books,
    • Journal articles,
    • Unsolved Problems,
    • Notable Latin squares

    It also includes a random Latin square generator (using a Markov chain pioneered by [url=http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/(SICI)1520-6610(1996)4:6%3C405::AID-JCD3%3E3.0.CO;2-J/abstract Jacobson and Matthews' Markov chain] in 1996). You can generate Latin squares for any order up to 11. Once you have generated a square, you can then find transversals that lie within it (if there are any).

    The app will be updated with new content as and when it appears in the community.

    It has been built as a universal iOS app, so it will look good on an iPhone, or an iPad. It also demonstrates a custom class that I built: the CUIHorizontalPickerView.

    Additionally, all of the content, and even the navigation structure, is read in via an API, so the app can be updated without having to pass through Apple's approval process.

    All of the source, which is Objective-C++, is available from my github page.
