Fantasy Demon 2011
Ok… Well I haven’t had any time yet to work on this, and with the recent debate as to whether or not there would even BE a 2011-2012 season, I got myself sidetracked.
Here is what I’m planning on doing in the coming weeks:
First, I need to move my server operations to something more stable, hosted using PHP and mySQL. Right now the services supporting the app are all in .NET running against SQL Server which is far too expensive.
Second, with far more development experience under my belt on the iOS platform, I want to bring a native iPad application to the table. In particular, the application needs better support for draft guides and drafting your team. Last year it was super helpful to have a ranked list and just remove players as they came off the board. I always knew then who was the best based on rank and possible combination of position (best available RB, for example).
I want to integrate the player images into their profile. This will be especially true on the large screen of the iPad.
I want to integrate more sources of fantasy news ala-Pulse style interface. It’s a great general news app, and that was easily the most used feature throughout the year.
I want to start integrating social elements into the application. This extends the Start This Guy concept to add user profiles (linked via Facebook, no registration please) and to hookup with other players, post on your walls, etc. A general forum would be useful as well…
