Candy Jar Estimator is a creative utility to help you win those guess-the-number-of-candies-in-this-jar competitions. It was developed for the BYU Mobile App competition in Fall 2011, and was the second major app Paperplate Design made to the Google Play store.
The idea is simple. 1) Select your candy, 2) Select your jar, 3) Customize your jar size if needed, 4) get the number of candies in the jar, and lastly (of course), win your competition! The math is complex, yet simple when you break it down, and it was a fun project to undertake. Candy Jar Estimator was developed in connection with Bryce Packard and DevelopingUS.
Cow Tipping is the first Android app that I built. It was a major learning experience and ended up taking probably 80 hours. Learning how to place a button, make it do something, add a simple background, use data structures to track the number of clicks on a cow, animate a cow tip, add audio clips, create a high scores page, and so much more. The most rudimentary tasks that took hours for me figure out resulted in this simple, 20 second game.
Much to my surprise, Cow Tipping has seen a lot of activity. The game consists of a 20 second level where you… you guessed it… tip cows. It’s rather simple, but it’s massed over 16,000 total downloads in the Android Market/Google Play Store. Updated in October 2012, Cow Tipping now features “Frenzy Mode,” where cows tip over with a single shove. It’s pretty cool.
