Get Mobile Updates with New Antiwar.com iPhone App

We are pleased to announce that web developer Doug Sparling has created the first iPhone app for Antiwar.com! Approached by Angela Keaton a few months ago about the possibility of developing the app, Sparling “who consumes most his daily news on the iPhone and iPad” accepted and has been volunteering his time.

“Since Antiwar.com isn’t optimized for mobile browsers [editor’s note: see here],” he said, “I had always wanted to build a mobile app for my own use and as an iPhone user, that’s the direction I went.”

“Initially, I wasn’t 100% sure if Apple would accept the Antiwar.com app to the App store, so I began by putting together a simple antiwar quotes app using quotes from the site. Once that was approved, I wrote a simple Antiwar.com RSS-reader type app for the iPhone, which is the version that’s currently in the App store.”

Sparling has already submitted version 1.1 and is fast at work on version 1.2 “which will rely more on the feeds instead of the site, so the stories will be easier to read on the iPhone.” He plans to add share features, improve the audio and video, and create versions for iPad and Android. Compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad, the Antiwar.com app requires iOS 4.2 or later.

Sparling’s tag line, “Will Code for Peace,” says a lot as he also contributes volunteer work to FreeGaza.org. For more information, please download the app or visit Sparling’s website.

    Do you really want to build an iPhone app? This might sound like a daft question at first. But I want to make sure that you have fully explored your target audience and considered whether it would be more suitable to launch an app on the Blackberry or Android platform.
