Some weeks ago, I was pondering if it would be possible to do a native App like the Tagi iPad App (a typical newspaper app) in pure html(5)/CSS/JS (aka Niwea). So I did what a Liiper often does when he wants to explore an idea: Organize a Hackday.
As of today, we officially open source our iPhone/iPad app "Radios". We started Radios as a Liip Hackday project soon after the iPad was announced and it was clear from the beginning, that we will make the code public some day. We used a lot of Open Source code to build it, after all. We publish it under the same license as the underlying software we used. It's the very liberal MIT license and the whole code is available at our github repository. So feel free to do some great new stuff with the code.
Apple finally approved the next iteration of our Radios App. It now not only runs on the iPad, but also on the iPhone. And if you already have iOS 4, you can listen to the radio while using other apps.
Almost two week ago, we released our iPad App Radios. And today the first update, with more features, more radio stations and multilingual interface, was approved and deployed by Apple.
