About 8 months ago, we decided that it would be a fun idea to create something that had the potential to be both useful to users and funny. A suggestion from a family member about creating an etiquette guide came to mind and after letting the idea sink in, we decided to build it. We took our time creating content, researching proper etiquette around the world, and compiling a huge database of etiquette tips and tricks.
We also took our time with the build, trying out numerous technologies to get the right fit for our app. Not surprisingly we ended up building the app in Adobe AIR 3.0, it isn’t surprising because we built our last application in Adobe AIR. It is a comfortable environment (Flash Builder), and allows for one code base to be used for both Android and iOS mobile devices.
The Etiquette App is a product of months of work on our part and now available for both Android and iOS devices (including the iPad). We plan to continue updating both the content and the functionality of the application based on our experiences, our plans, and most importantly user feedback. So please check it out and let us know what you think.
We also created a site to go along with the application, theetiquetteapp.com. There is a Twitter account @TheEtiquetteApp and a Facebook page that can all be used to track updates and see what people are sharing online about etiquette.
Above we mentioned that we wanted to have a funny aspect to the app. We have been and are still working on creating fun ways to share the content with those around you. The ability to share anonymously both privately and publicly are built into the app. If you find something that you think applies to a friend, a colleague, or anyone you know you can share it via your Facebook / Twitter accounts or you can share the tip anonymously, tagging another individual alternatively you can send someone a private email either personally or anonymously.
To find the app, in click here for iTunes Canada and click here for the Android Market. The Etiquette App is available globally in both markets and can be found by searching for either Cult Creative or The Etiquette App.
