Some time ago I was looking for an HTML5 spinner to include in my project CanvaMap.
I found some interesting tools such as CanvasLoader, but as usual I wanted to create a custom one. Something barebones, simple and lightweight.
A very basic example is shown below. Double clicking on any of the leftmost buildings, zooms in and shows the floor plans. Zoom can also be achieved using the mouse wheel.
Recently I’ve started to develop a few Android applications with some friends, and as soon as I started to make updates I faced a problem: how can I tell my beta testers to update the application to the latest test version?
I could email them all every time, but I’d need to have all their email addresses. I could use a service such as Zubhium (by the way, they have a very good user support), but for a small application such as mine that’s an overkill.
So what could I do? I had to write a custom updater, of course.
