Finally Lodgeo V2 is coming to the Apple store

 

phone3Yes. Finally. Lodgeo V2 is coming. This is not advertisement but after months of developing that almost new product and literally tons of testing we will finally publish that major Lodgeo release that I have been mentioning in previous posts. For months and months and months we have been balancing between adding the freshness of a new user experience and maintaining the solidity that we had in the past to get an application that is both edgy and robust. Now it has been accomplished even though still perfectible, we will aim at bringing more sexy features very soon.

I cannot discuss those incoming features but good things are definitely coming and the Lodgegoers are already working on those. Here is a little video to get you waiting until the release.

 

Shapeshifting in progress

A couple month ago I told myself I would write my next blog about some personal project I was working on, but then life kinda got sucked into work and since then that project got stuck into development hell. So it will be in another blog, if I write today it’s about the acquisition of an elliptical trainer I made yesterday. I thought it would be nice to just be fit again as back in the days I was playing football. I’m only 24 and don’t feel out of shape in everyday’s life, but I can feel it when I play football with friends and collegues, like I run everywhere for 10-15 minutes and I’m toasted. So I went to get that so I can enjoy playing the trickster on sundays mornings again. By the way this thing was heavy as hell to transport, I was convinced I could easily lift a wide 50+ kilos and carry it over a double kilometer back to my apartment (which ultimately I did but that was excruciating, considering). So today I decided to start the official return of JD to sports by watching a Game of Thrones episode that I started watching yesterday (5th from 5th season, just because), so just trained 40mn with 10 kilometer traveled which is nice for a first (for those that want to try that, don’t forget to constantly hydrate or the stop will be painful). So quite proud of myself and it feels fresh, just feels fresh. Bringing back that kind of activity is quite a good thing not just to enhance as a person but also as an engineer as it will help me broaden my reflexion or even clear my head when I’m stuck on an issue. Video games are good for that but online games can be frustrating sometimes and I will not mention a certain MOBA that I left the Hellish tier a couple of days ago thanks to a friend and some epic games but I’m digressing here. Also, my company Lodgeo released a new version of our app so check it out on both Google Play and the App Store. And I promise next post will be more development related and won’t be in too long. Cheers!

Lodgeo lives !!!

Yes, my very first post on that blog is kinda corporate. But it’s very exciting to see a project I’ve been working on for months be released to the world. Our iPhone app is finally available to the public. What it does ? Mainly meta-search, the goal is to allow the user to find a hotel room, compare between different providers, such as Booking.com or Agoda to quote only those ones, in order to get the best price, book directly in the app and all of this in less than one minute. Of course, we have a lot of surprises coming for the next version we’re already working on. You can download the iPhone version here. Thanks to that app you can get the same hotel, for less.
