Other Web Applications

This is a collection of web applications I've developed over the last two years, mostly built on the open source platform Drupal:

  • TextTheMob.com enables users to create polls and message boards for live events. Anyone in the audience can submit their choice by sending a text message or on a mobile web page. Results are displayed in real-time.

  • RE-Text.Info enables Realtors and Landlords to communicate with passerbys at their properties 24/7. It lets users create text messages that are sent to prospective buyers upon request with a summary of their listing and a link to a mobile web page that provides more in-depth information and images. Cell phone numbers of text message requests are saved as reports and provide unique leads and opportunities to follow-up with potential clients.

  • iCommunity.TV was envisioned as a collaborative platform for local news with the intention to promote video as a media for citizen reporting. As an aggregation platform iCommunity.TV ties into the popular video-sharing service Youtube.com, extends its offering by letting a broad audience georeference and sort video clips in news categories and offers multiple convenient ways to watch and subscribe to these custom channels (e.g. “Politics in Berlin, Germany”).
