Edit: We’ve moved into an even larger, less expensive office located at 507 1/2 W Hays St in Boise. I’ve updated the post below so there’s no confusion.

I’m proud to announce the opening of our office in downtown Boise for mobile app development. It’s located at 507 1/2 W Hays St. 512 W Idaho St between the Flying M and Java in downtown Boise. We’re also located right next to the web and software development company known as Nerdy Dragon and DTX Creative.

From this office, we’ll be creating iOS applications for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch as well as developing applications for Android phones and tablets. Stop by with your iOS device and we’ll give you free copies of some of our apps. We have created over 15 successful applications and would love to share them with you.

You can also stop by our new website dedicated to the education, development and consulting on mobile application development. We’re still creating our app portfolio, but if you’re here, you probably already know about some the mobile apps I’ve created (hint: see the right sidebar).

I also started teaching mobile application development class at Boise State University in order to create developers with the experience to create their own apps. Hopefully these students will go on to start and develop their own mobile apps and increase the mobile app industry in Boise and make Idaho an authority on mobile app development.

I’m super excited about the new office space, the new website and the future of mobile app development in Boise.

As part of our trip to Thailand, we stayed on a small island for 3 full days. They had rock climbing, snorkeling, kayaking and lots of relaxation. We did a lot of rock climbing in the afternoons since it was too hot to climb during the day. Probably the most memorable part of the trip.

As part of our much belated honeymoon, we ventured to Thailand with two goals in mind: rock climbing and scuba.

The first night we were there, we found a tiny rock climbing shop down from our hotel, the Haleeva (which I’d recommend, though a bit up from the beach, but we didn’t care). They took us on their boat to Railay Beach, a peninsula accessible only by  boat since the top is bordered by large mountains. We climbed for the first half of the day, ate lunch on the beach with two girls from Germany (we met so many Germans on this trip) that we met rock climbing and walked over to West Railay Beach where it was filled with people enjoying the beach.

Our goal however was to find a cave that was recommended to us. A bit of a ways up the beach, we found more rock climbers and eventually found a cave with fixed ropes and ladders inside. A flashlight was definitely needed (one was lent to us by a local climbing shop) as we traversed back and up inside this cave. It eventually came out 50 feet above the rock climbers we had previously encountered with a gorgeous view of one of the beaches.

NetRef is our latest iPhone app, published through LTZ. With NetRef, you can look up all default passwords and IP addresses for those new or old routers. Once you set up your router, you can use the built-in Ping feature to ping and test the connectivity of the router. The Ping feature also includes DNS resolution so you can ping a web address as well as a IP address.

We developed the app with the help of Jonathan Cost who has a strong expertise in networks and network hardware. Check out http://netrefapp.com to download the app. We’re always adding more routers and features, but if you have any feedback, we’d love to hear from you!

We visited the City of Rocks National Reserve in southern Idaho and camped there for two days. We also got our first real rock climbing experience.
