Inventing My Own iPad Application for Maxis

What would I want most with my iPad? I want it to be my one stop centre for my Movie experience. For the iPhone, there’s already and app that shows you all the cinemas in Malaysia together with its scheduled screening. It also show the place on Maps so if I’m new in town and I’m driving, I just tap on the map and Maps app will show me how to get there myself. Further more, I could buy the ticket straight away. I want it to be more than that on my iPad.

Say that I want to know more about the film I’m going to watch. Having just a synopsis and who’s acting in it or recommendation on what movies it resemble to just won’t cut it. It has to be link to the Internet Movie Database a.k.a. IMDB. I want to know more about the actors too. Connecting with IMDB would have me access to what was the actors previous movies. Pretty important for someone who are sometimes forgetful.

I would also want my peeps know what I’m watching. It has to have a function like Gomiso where all of my friends know what I’m watching and get rewarded with badges and stuff. Maybe these badges could also earn me a free popcorn or soda or maybe discounted ticket and maybe, just maybe free movie ticket on my birthday. Movie rating is also crucial. I could enter ratings and review where it matters for all movie buff.

Movie apps would not be complete if it does not have online booking in it. If I like the movie then definitely I want to watch it. Having to book online saves time. I would be even better to buy it online, especially those box office movie where it is quickly sold out fast! Payment method? PayPal would be good, but why stop there? Why not having you ticket paid via our local banks? Convenience at your fingertip, it literally is!

Lastly, I should be able to save what I want to watch onto my calendar, without having to type it in again. With Calendar, I could also invite friends and family to watch it together with me, and yes, book or buy their ticket together with mine.

Wouldn’t that be great?

The Geek

A so called geek who resides at North Borneo, in a not so little city anymore, formerly known as Api-Api to the locals, Jesselton to the colonialist. This geek is a Civil Engineer by profession, who have lots of ideas popping up while traveling, who will write whatever popped up in his mind and hopping the reader would not be so judgmental toward his writings. This geek is also a computer & internet junkie who love outdoor, which is pretty much contradicting to each other doesn’t it? This geek is good at almost everything but a master of none (read about this somewhere). People may perceive him as a very quiet, describe as phlegmatic person, yet he is quite a chatterbox to those whom he is really close or comfortable with. This geek thinks anime chicks are way cooler than a real chick hence why he also likes to watch it (not the chicks, but the anime). Not to be mistaken as watching a cartoon, anime to this geek and to most of anime follower are animation that are created and produce by the Japanese.
