Products & Applications
The idea is simple. At the start of your day - upon completion of your first task - create an entry highlighting what you did and whether you feel it was an efficient or inefficient use of your time. Based on several requests, you can also select the priority, apply categories, or even align your time against a project.
For Lotus Notes Client v8.0 and above, you can use the Time Tracker Widget to make this process even easier!
My Configuration-based Rich Text Mail Merge and Emailing Utility, Zephyr allows you to create rich, data-driven emails to support automated workflow - all via Microsoft Word Mail Merge-like architecture. Dear <firstname> allows you to personalize each email message not only to the individual recipient, but also to the individual application workflow event!
xCopy is a simple configurable xCopy client for the Lotus Notes client. By creating and defining xCopy Profiles, you can batch process your file backup or remote upload jobs. With the addition of the xCopy sidebar widget, you can easily kick-off these jobs, and modify both the xCopy Profiles and xCopy itself.

After creating various HTML5 Custom Controls for my IBM XPages application development toolkit, I thought I would showcase two of these controls -- Geolocation and Canvas -- to paint a Google Map of the current user location. Bonus: works great on mobile devices too!

The release of RIM's BlackBerry Mobile Fusion has me honestly thinking that I'm missing out on some evolved platform and device experience since I gave up my BlackBerry Bold for my iPhone 4. And since I'm an amazingly selfish person, I've all but abandoned any BlackBerry platform mobile device development efforts.
... and I was a huge BlackBerry fanboy. Remember Showtime, my BES channel push utility for the IBM Lotus Notes client?! It was even showcased during a WES presentation in 2009!
But today I don't have a BlackBerry device (not counting my v5 OS-running BlackBerry Curve that is now the family extra mobile), be it a BlackBerry Bold, Playbook, or any of the like. Thus, my interest in writing for that platform has waned.
... that is, unless there is a solid need for supporting that platform by you, Constant Reader!
So instead of simply putting out a blog post to get an idea as to what devices you use personally as well as which devices you have to support in your company, I thought I'd have a little fun and try out a survey service...

While building a multi-client (Lotus Notes, Web Browser, and Mobile Device Browser) or hybrid XPages app, there are various techniques that can be used to handle application navigation.
If we're considering the Mail/Calendar/To Dos and the Personal Address Book representative of the typical traditional Lotus Notes Client application, the application navigation has an initial launch screen, and each Form/NotesDocument is launched in a new tab within the client.
If we're considering most Web Browser Client apps, the navigation has an initial launch screen, and each Form/NotesDocument is launched within that same screen instance. In fact, creating new tabs or windows is a deprecated practice, as it often results in the user losing the focus of the intended user experience.
If we're considering most Mobile Device Client apps, the idea of a new tab/window for each Form/NotesDocument will break the application even more. Especially with touchscreen devices, the idea of swiping to move between "screens" but maintaining a same-screen instance is critical to mirroring the native application and operating system user experience...

In this series, you will be creating a multi-platform mobile device user interface and enhanced user experience for a Domino Server-hosted NotesDatabase app using the Personal Address Book Template.
One of the more important but often overlooked phase of a development project is often the inclusion of representation of the target audience -- or most importantly any project champions -- in the "Design" phase.
Involving a user in the process is apparently taboo... and I find that not many developers actually do this. Let's take a look at an example scenario that, sadly, I've seen play out far too many times...

I know, I didn't give you that much advanced notice, and despite another XPages webinar that was scheduled for the same exact time, we had a really decent turn-out.
If you missed my recent webinar on Mobilizing Apps with XPages, have no fear: as with all of GBS Group Talk webinars, we recorded it, and have made it available for playback.
Again, from our much-more-eloquent-than-me Marketing Team:
Learn about creating smartphone and mobile device-friendly User Interfaces and User Experiences for your existing traditional IBM Lotus Notes Client applications. In this 1 hour session we'll discuss development and architectural considerations as well as valuable techniques and code you can use to create a Mobile XPages app.
You can view this webinar, download the slidedeck in PDF format, and even download the example/demo NotesDatabases at gbs.com/en/videos.
