Paris Air Quality is an app I developed in two weeks.
It simply shows you the current status of air quality in percentage (It is the French standard so don’t ask me what would mean a 100% polluted air!) for Paris and Île-de-France region.

But the cool thing about this app is that first of all it works! (in contrary to the AirParif app with 10m$ budget!! -will write more about that later!-) and secondly the fact that it is based on good UX design, It has a Widget that you can put in your Android home-screen and it will update itself every once in a while without using too much of your cellphone battery! and aesthetically it is very pleasant!

Other features:

  • Native Android app (not web-view based like AirParif).
  • Has a beautiful and battery-efficient widget.
  • beautiful widget designed for your home-screen.
  • resizable widget with different layouts for different widget sizes.
  • It is completely free.
  • It is completely ad-free (No advertising at all).
  • Independent development.
  • No permissions required except of internet connection! (very secure)
  • Available on Google Play, Amazon and other Android Markets.
  • Easy to use (Just drop the widget on home-screen and that’s it!).
  • Open-Source.

So if you live in mentioned area (Paris and Île-de-France) go check this useful (and honestly must to have!) application on Google-market right away!

If you live in US, Canada or Mexico you can use this app (Air Quality USA) instead (an update for this is scheduled).

World Stories! (new project)

After finishing my InDesign Plug-ins (at least the beta version!), while I’m writing my thesis (due in a month!!) I’m planing on my next projects as well.
Although I will definitely work more and update IDTK extensions (both free and paid versions) in future but since I don’t have enough feedback on them yet (it feels pretty much deserted in Adobe Exchange website! although it may be becouse my plug-in targets only CS6 in this version but I was expecting a little bit more hits!), Anyway, I decided to start something more reliable for now! (I should add that I’m very happy with my experience with Adobe, and that I’m an Adobe partner now!)

So! what’s next project?!

It is an application targeting Mobile app-stores!
It is something between an app and a game, or both!
I’ll update you with more of it later, but for now enjoy the first sketch in progress I made for this app, A Cicada! :)
