How Margaret got her app live & how you can do it too!

Hearing about our students stories, accomplishments and the projects that they have delivered since attending our courses is a very rewarding time and provides us with inspiration and pride in the work that we do here at Amsys training.

Back in 2012m, Margaret, a graphic designer from Essex, took the Amsys Objective-C for Beginners and iOS App Development course. Following her training, Margaret left feeling that the course had met her objectives and had given her a good understanding of the Objective C language, therefore enabling her to pursue her own app development project.

The App is called “Unibookworm” and seeks to solve the problem with “what to do with your uni books, once your degree has finished.” Many other providers, such as Amazon, take a percentage from each sale, which is something that Margaret wanted to avoid.

After a year in the making, the App was accepted onto the AppStore, and is available to download for 69p.

Once UniBookWorm is downloaded, students can enter the book’s details, by using the quick ISBN feature which recognises the number and fills in the details for them (they can add a photo using the camera function).

Students looking for particular books can also search the Unibookworm database by author, subject, ISBN or keyword. The students can then send messages to each other to arrange payment, delivery etc.

Included within the app is a link (by clicking on the Purchase button) for the Barclays Pingit App, which can be downloaded and used for easy payment. You don’t have to have a Barclays account in order to use this facility.

Richard Mallion, author of our iOS app development courses, has downloaded the app and said that, Margaret had “done a fantastic job.”
