TheHackerNextDoor Posted April 27, 2014 Share Posted April 27, 2014 Hi all, I'm going to make this a lot shorter, because I just finished writing this and Google Chrome decided to crash. I want to write an app for the pineapple so people can control it from an iPod, iPhone, or iPad. I have the technical experience to do this. A few questions I have: Hosting. Should I host the server, or should I allow anybody to host it? Note: Encryption will be used on either end, plus an ID system, so no security problems with that. The only problem I can think of is DoSes/DDoses. Price. Free on Cydia, $0.99 on the app store, or free with ads on the app store? Please keep in mind screen space is a luxury. Things it can do. All I have thought of so far is an infusion manager, and LED manager, and a command executer. What else should it do? Of course, some of you will be asking why. Here are a few reasons: - Security. If you're managing your Pineapple over 3G or public WiFi, the web interface can easily be sniffed. - Efficiency: Most 3G plans have a data cap. By rendering it on the client side, and just communicating with the Pineapple for information, you cut down on the amount of data being tossed around. - Ease: As someone who's managed the pineapple from my iPod 5, I can tell you it's not much fun, because the web interface is designed for a computer.
