Lately I've been working on new algorave music in the style of drill&bass and I'm playing a set here in New York for the PdCon16 party. It's at a space called Vital Joint in Williamsburg, tonight (Saturday) at midnight.
Although it is an exadgeration to say that app stores are dead it is true that web apps (applications that run in a web browser) and the mobile-device browser platforms have become powerful to the point that it is often not neccessary to build a native app.
There is a gap in the web app paradigm as users don't always realise they can install a web app they use by going to "Add to homescreen".
An interesting way to fill that gap would be to build an "app store" for web apps. That is, a native app that curates and carries out the "add to homescreen" process for the user for a wide variety of quality web applications. So basically like Firefox OS but without the OS - just the installer, and for the native browser of each platform.
Ideas are cheap and execution is everything - you don't need my permission to take this idea and run with it if you're convinced.
Drawing practice in the style of Ben Hatke.
Scout and I finished Zita the Spacegirl recently which was a wonderful adventure.
