Guidebook

Just playing with an iphone or ipad app for the Southern Alberta Guidebook updates I did this summer.

I've just started exploring and still don't have a solid template design.  Plus it's probably going to stretch the images I have.  Transferring layouts to a mobile device is a bit challenging - especially when you're using a wysiwyg editor instead of straight code.  However, since I don't code in objective-c there's not many other option.

I never did get to the Pass this summer to get some better info on Gargoyle, Emerald lake and some of the new stuff Chris Morris has done.  Plus, outside of a single reconnoitre, I've never played on the routes Ralph Eckman and the Medicine Hat club did in the valley just south of the Reservation Slab.

Nov 25 Update

It's been a fair bit of work, but I've got what I think is a fairly decent template going right now.  The menu icons are mainly finished.

Just finishing up a 8h stint to get the content in the Free or Lite version. I'll likely just including Drywood and the Gap for areas with this build.

Still have to whip up all the icons and do all the images. I imagine that should take about 10h for the icons and a good 20h-30h for the images. After that its grunt linkage time.

After that I'll need to figure a good layout for the Classics section. I had wanted to get back up to Wedge, Gargoyle and the new Crag at the Gap, to make sure I gave those routes their fair shake.... Next year perhaps.

This isn't the best place to post this, but the "e-mail me" link doesn't work, so here goes. I'm new to the area and looking for ice climbing partners this winter. If anyone on this site wants to get out, drop me a line and hopefully we'll be able to arrange something!
