Today I am publishing a new app on the AppStore: This time I combined two of my passions: My passion for climbing & bouldering and my passion for iOS development. iRedpoint iRedpoint is a fitness tracker for bouldering and climbing that uses the built-in sensors form the Apple Watch. While I developed this app I discovered how amazing and well-thought watchOS and the actual Apple Watch hardware already are – providing computing power for real-time machine learning analysis of accelerometer and gyroscope samples, the heart rate and the barometer. iRedpoint features an iPhone companion app as well that analyzes and visualizes the training data. This includes personalized training feedback and detailed charts. You can download the app for free on[…]

Evernote organized an AppleWatch hackathon in Zürich. I met there with Arik, whom I know from previous WWDCs.   We developed an Apple Watch app which helps to learn vocabulary on the go. We use different sensors to determine when the user is idling, for example waiting at a red traffic light. We then push a little exercise notification which includes one vocabulary. This can help to learn a new language on the go without a big effort. We received the second price for this project.
