QuakeFeed Now Available in the App Store
QuakeFeed is now available in the App Store! This is a free app that I've created using the Esri ArcGIS API for iOS.
Download Now: QuakeFeed in the iTunes Store
The app displays all earthquakes from the past 7 days with a magnitude > 2.5 on a map or in list. Six beautiful base maps are provided by Esri. A variety of filter and sort options are available. The app is location aware so you can find quakes that are closest to you. It has an intuitive user interface and features Twitter, Facebook, and email integration.
Esri ArcGIS for iOS Webinar Archive
Earlier this month I participated in a Directions Media Webinar in which I shared some tips & tricks and lessons learned while developing QuakeFeed and working on another ArcGIS API for iOS integration project for our client CitySourced. The archive of this webinar is now available on the Directions site.

Esri ArcGIS For iOS White Paper
For this event, myself and Kurt Daradics of CitySourced also collaborated on a technical white paper.
The paper begins with an overview of the CitySourced app and the reasons why they migrated to the ArcGIS API for iOS.
A technical discussion follows, with code samples that show:
Base map options available through the API.
Waiting for the map to load before drawing graphics.
How to perform WGS84 to Web Mercator transformation on the device.
Tips for drawing pins on the map for improved usability.
