Solved: Blog Banner Rotator Script Generator

Recently a friend of mine was in need of a solution to rotate banners on his website. He already had the images but needed a way to make them rotate while users were on the site.  His request inspired me to build this application that he and others can use. I would like to introduce Blog Banner Rotator.

Blog or website owners can use Blog Banner Rotator to generate script for installation on their blog which will randomly rotate the specified banner images at a given interval.
It is easy to use: Specify the banner captions, image URLs, link URLs, and other settings such as height and width.  Then click the button to generate the script. Finally, copy the script into an HTML/JavaScript widget on the blog or on an area of the website that allows JavaScript to run.
The trial version allows users to manage one rotator which can contain up to 50 banners.
The paid subscription allows users to manage up to 15 rotators with up to 50 banners each.
Download it for Windows or Mac at the Chrome Web St…

Amazing fire and water effects in Unreal Engine 4

Introducing Brick Juggle Game for iPhone

Image
I am happy to announce Brick Juggle, my recently published game that I built using Unity.

The point of the game is to keep all three bricks in the air as long as you can. The timer starts once you have all three in the air. Don't let them fall or you'll break the glass. Good luck!

Lightning List for iPhone - Made using Titanium Studio and InkPad

Image
I created another app for the iPhone called Lightning List. The app went live on the App Store two days ago.

Lightning List allows you to create lists very quickly. You can also add a sublist to an item by double-tapping that item. Sublists can go multiple levels deep. Add icons to list items by using the Emoji keyboard available on your iPhone.

I programmed the app using Titanium Studio; and I created the icon using InkPad.

See Lightning List on the App Store.
