We already mentioned our decision to build a completly new app for adminstrating the payment system. Have you ever taken a look at the ionic framework? It’s really a cool framework for building hybrid mobile apps. But what’s a hybrid app?
Here’s the definition ionic made themselfes: “Hybrid apps are essentially small websites running in a browser shell in an app that have access to the native platform layer. Hybrid apps have many benefits over pure native apps, specifically in terms of platform support, speed of development, and access to 3rd party code.”
Oliver Krohn’s App was build to run on Android. That’s already a cool way to administrate the payment system, but you still have to get close to the system to establish a blueetooth connection. How cool would it be to run an app on more or less every platform and administrate the payment system from anywhere you like. That’s exactly what our ionic app was made for.
Here we go…
The app is still an early preview. The complete code is available on Github.
