Howdy folks! It’s burning up here on the East Coast with 103-105 degree temperatures over the next few days (local weather says it feels like 109 degrees outside right now!). To celebrate the hot weather (lol. kidding), we’re creating some “hot” new things for our PinBoard Pinterest clone. We are working on the next set of updates for the PinBoard theme that’ll include a new design as well as a mobile app for the theme.
We have a sneak peek at the new design below. Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
With Dropdown Nav…
Multiple Color Schemes
PinBoard User Profile Page
Our current plan is to charge a nominal fee to current PinBoard theme buyers if they want to use this new theme – something like $25 or so for the theme package. We’re still deciding any added costs though. PinBoard version 2 will include it’s own separate theme folder and will not be interchangeable with the current PinBoard theme design. After the new design is completed all new PinBoard theme buyers will have this theme option within the new theme package downloaded. There will be no extra charge for the new design. We’ll update on it’s progress in the comments below.
We’re Making a Mobile App for PinBoard
We’ll also be updating this blog post once we’re further ahead with the development of a new iOS and Andriod app for PinBoard. But, for now, I wanted to post a few quick notes on this exciting new app development for PinBoard.
We are going to make a Drupal phonegap app that allows full drupal web site content management. Something similar to these two posts discussing mobile mobile HTML5 and Android Apps: Building a jQuery Mobile HTML5 App with Phonegap for Drupal-7 and Android App with Drupal 7 Services Phonegap and jQuery Mobile. Both provide integration with native mobile apps and the Drupal website API. We hope to have this wrapped up in a few weeks and this will allow for a full mobile PinBoard app for PinBoard customers.
More to come… :)
