Wiki on Map: Built with Mobincube, OpenStreetMaps, Wikipedia and Moback
This new feature is great for developing advanced apps, like games, animations, user interaction, calculators, advanced forms, etc. But you don’t necessarilly need to display stuff, you can just use HTML modules to add points of decissions in your app, like open one menu or another depending on the language that the user has set in his device.
There are hundreds of SDKs outthere that you can use to add amazing functionalities to your app. You can also use our partner moback’s solution to have an easy to use server backend for your app, so you just worry about developing your app, not the server.
We want to share with you this app built with Mobincube as a good example of using this new feature:
Wiki map (for Android)
It also uses the Wikipedia API to retrieve articles. One cool thing about Wikipedia is that you can search for articles by entering a GPS location. So it is easy to place them on a map.
And finally, the app uses moback to store user sessions and mainly to store the articles that user mark as their favorites.
It’s a quite simple piece of code, just around 500 lines of code. And the result is quite good!
