Yes, I know. It's been a long time. There was much personal craziness since the last time I posted, but that's long since taken care of and things are great once again.
In development news... there is a new Windows Phone app on the horizon! During my break I had plenty of time to reacquaint myself with my gaming hobby, and found Diablo 3 along the way. Well Blizzard just released their public API for Diablo 3 data and I thought it would be a fun project.
It is tentatively titled D3 Gear - yeah I know... If you have better name suggestions drop them in the comments below. D3 Gear will allow you to pull career and hero data for any battle.net account provided you have the full BattleTag (this means the name and the id#. If you play Diablo 3, this should not be a surprise). You can see all kinds of interesting statistics, as well as the complete stats and equipment loadout for individual heroes. Here are some images of the work currently in progress...
The more observant of you may have noticed the placeholder ads. Those are there because this app will be released for FREE! Aren't I nice?
If you are interested in beta testing D3 Gear, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (yup, thats a shiny new email address too!) and leave me your Live ID/Microsoft Account. It is imperative you send the ID used to sign in with your phone, or the beta download link I'll send you WILL NOT WORK. Be on the lookout for a site redesign as well in the coming weeks.
It's good to be back! If you are reading this - Thanks for sticking with me!
