iKatastr2 aktualizace na App Store

175x175bb

iKatastr2  update je na  App Store !  Diky všem, kteří jej používají  a podporují tento projekt. Těší mě, že se aplikace hojně používá – a to byl také hlavní důvod aktualizace aplikace.

Tento update  je  udržovací – obsahuje rekompilaci na nejnovější iOS a zároveň stále podporuje iOS od verze 6.   Byla aktualizovaná knihovna Google Maps SDK a opraveny drobné chybky.  Můžete zde napsat své názory, komentáře a ještě lépe přímo na App Store iKatastr2 ocenit – to je jediná měna, kterou  můžete za aplikaci, která je zdarma “zaplatit” – a věřte, že každý pozitivní ohlas dodává vývojáři palivo, smysl a chuť v tom pokračovat a třeba i něčím novým překvapit :)

iKatastr 25 months statistics

Following graphs shows  more than 2 years overview of project iKatastr on various platforms – web site, iOS, Android. Project iKatastr does simple stuff – shows cadastral map and enables user to tap on map and get information from the parcel registry (e.g. owner) in Czech Republic. Except Android version, all started at the same time 2 years ago for web, iPhone and iPad. All of the users of iKatastr are solely Czech consumers and thus reflect situation in the Czech app stores and web.

first graph shows how monthly sessions have evolved. Original thought that mobile launch of app iKatastr would boost web site visit failed. However after 15 months of runing iKatastr.cz web site and rephrasing some keywords for SEO it started dramatically to gain visits.  Decline of iOS version in last 4 months is caused most likely by new project iKatastr2 that replaces the original one on iOS. iKatastr2 statistics is not yet revealed here.

second graph shows distribution of sessions among all platforms of iKatastr. 75% of all iKatastr sessions comes from mobile devices, while only 25% comes from web.

iKatastr2 on 6th place in Křišťálová lupa 2012

I am excited to announce  that  project I have been working on at Intergraph called ” iKatastr2″  has placed on  6th position in category “Mobile service” in national competition called “Kříšťálová lupa 2012” (Czech Internet Prize)
  • First 3 places has been occupied by popular news applications or national TV app ( hundreds of thousands users).
  • 4th place positioned  AVG antivirus application for Android. (tens of millions users)
  • 5th place took Czech public  transit application. (hundreds of thousands users)
iKatastr2 was the only map/geospatial-related application  nominated
few reasons for success are :
  •  good content provided through  OGC standards  by national mapping agency (CUZK)
  •  great user experience  for getting job done
  •  application quality and stability
  •  focus on local (national)  services rather than global

Awarding ceremony was great fun  ! it was in the spirit of end of the world in 2012 so stage was styled as cemetery and winners received among other gravestones . Each winner had a chance to say something and then they passed into the black tunnel to ‘the other side’ as the end of the world is planned in 3 weeks.

ikatastr2 on AppStore

I have just release iKatastr2 app on AppStore (free) that  might be useful for you to look at as it uses WMS sources and  custom tile loading on top of google.

App does simple stuff – shows cadastral information by tapping on cadastral  map of the Czech Republic.

As all is driven by JSON configuration it is quite easy to render similar information from other sources.
