NO NO NO NO NO, fixed the Mobile App for readability & am learning what things mean in codeland…

So…

Late last night I go to check our new Mobile App I’m so proud of…

Realize…Can’t read a thing…

Icons are pretty but words are microscopic…

ARGH!

Confirm with Joseph…He’s like:”Can’t read it”…

“I know”…

So late last night I’m creating all new Icon assets in high contrast black text on white snowy backdrops with some ice for texture…

Thank God my Mum took that awesome iPhone pic of me with the two swans last week!

I needed some blue light, Northern, sunny, & the look she took was perfect…

Used this for every icon backdrop…! Yay MOMs!

Loaded it all up, republished the APP, went to sleep…

Woke up 6:30 am…OH NO…Have to re-record the contest submission video…Redo whole thing…Resubmit all…

Waaah…

But did it…(I actually stuck it in the APP after…It’s a good video I did…You can see the video within the APP if you do the first QUIZ, click SUBMIT, the page then whisks you to the entry submission video with an awesome SONG(by Ryan Huston, called Do what you love, from the album THIS LIFE)…

The APP is at bwell.mobi/grove

Now if you go to the APP on a desktop you get this page on the internet…

It has a Flash Gordon Icon, it has a description of the APP, it has a screenshot which is buggy & is not showing right now, & it has some weird choices which I am trying to figure out…

Ok first choice is DOWNLOAD the APP…

I got something called an APK file…Couldn’t open it…It was labelled grove.apk

Found out if I just change the apk to ZIP I can open it…

I’m on a Mac snow leopard desktop…10.6.8

So just change the name of the ending of the file from APK to ZIP…

Double click now it opens & you get all the ASSETS of the APP…

Neat…All my custom icons, their custom icons(their is Infinite Monkeys the App creator service I use…)

next choice is…

email link…

That one opens up my email server on my computer & puts a whole message in it…

You can see in the picture what it will say…2nd picture from the top…

The third choice is send link by SMS which means short message service, or something like that…

I don’t use SMS so I am not sure what to put in the box…Their phone number? Their email address? I’m guessing a phone number maybe that this is a text message thingy…

I will update this post when I doublecheck that…(ok, yes…From a desktop computer, just type in the cell phone number of the person you want to send the SMS to…That will send them a text message with a link to this awesome App…)

Last choice is View HTML APP…

That gives you the whole app but you can see it right away, from your Safari or Firefox or whatever browser you are on & it is totally interactive & totally works just like the app will on your iphone or other mobile device like Ipad or tablet or Android like your Samsung Galaxy phone…

So that is neat…

How to put a PayPal button on WordPress.com or in an email, like in a MailChimp mailing…

First you need the EMAIL version of the button code that PayPal spits out when you create your button…It comes out as a link…

(Make sure to click when making your PayPal button the “Save button at Paypal” choice in Step 2 of button creation…)

Then you need the IMAGE code for whatever button you want…I took the Make a Donation button code & used it below…

Then put that image in…The code…

Then in the Visual editor, not html or code editor, LINK that Image with the PayPal button link code you created in the create a button section of Paypal…

It works…Both on WordPress.com & if you send yourself an email…The only thing is you may have to click on “Load Images” for the Image of the button to show up…

Here is the LInk to the original post about how to put a PayPal button on WordPress.com http://en.support.wordpress.com/paypal/

Here is what the code looks like in WordPress.com if I put it in the Visual editor instead of the Text editor…

It also works in an email…(My email provider fastmail.fm has an html or Rich text setting choice-I’m guessing most do)…

<code><a href=”https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&amp;hosted_button_id=63KXJ2SQ44L3E”><img alt=”Make a Donation Button” src=”https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/x-click-but21.gif&#8221; /></a>(if you appreciate being able to read our book online, say so by sending us a monetary thank you!Sari Grove)</code>

Here is the button when I put it in the Text editor…(I hit “code” before adding any code in here)
