Android sample app is released

We have taken the Tic-tac-toc game, a typical Android app example, and have enriched it with a new login screen, enabling users to login using Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIN, Google or Yahoo accounts. This uses OAuth protocol.

Source code of this sample application is open and available for developers to use it as a basis of future and more complex applications.

You can see technical details and code itself clicking below

Wordpress and Android integration to Bachbill

We understand Bachbill is not a standalone product and the integration is a key feature.
Although, APIs available are flexible and easy to use, we are moving a step forward in the integration field, providing pre-built integration components.
We are well ahead in the Wordpress as well as in the Android integration. We will keep you posted on both.
