Just put together a demo of the iPhone application I've been working on for the past week. Not 100% yet, but I'm close. Mobile development is a lot different than what I'm used to. There's some memory leaks somewhere in there I have to nail down, and have to hook up the settings but hey, we're close :D

Hoping to have a stable version in the coming weeks. Not sure what to do with it yet, though. I'd like to offer it for free on the app store, but might have to end up charging a bit to recoup the costs for a developer license which is required to submit and I don't yet have. What do you guys think a fair price would be if it came down to it? I'm not sure of the demand for something like this, and not really in it for a profit. What do you guys think?

If/When I ever get an android device, I definitely will. Want to donate one to me for testing? :D

Since reef keeping is an expensive hobby, you can probably charge whatever you want. My preference though would be $1 :)

App looks good. Hopefully it will be out when I purchase a Reef Angel.

(suggestion: reduce the number of typeface / color / size combinations for cleaner look)

This type of functionality already exists inside the Client Suite that Dave created. I know he's going to be working on porting his app to run on Mac OS.

If one were to create a web app for this, then there would have to be some way to install it on a users personal web server or something in order for it to work properly.

Well, this sort of already exists if you have the wifi adapter. You can browse to http://wifiurl:2000/wifi and control the first outlet box and view temps - exactly what I do now on the app

Thanks, this is the kind of stuff I'm looking for. I never had a good eye for design stuff. I only see the functionality and data, so hearing how to make it look better is hugely helpful to me.

Sure thing, when I get the memory leak figured out, I'll post the source code to github where you can pull it and test it out.
