How to Convert Phone Numbers Into Real Business Data with EveryoneAPI

EveryoneAPI by Telo allows to convert a phone number into real business intelligence with a simple API request. The complete reverse phone append product is simple to use, yet powerful and built for developers by developers. As you probably already know, integrating with any 3rd party REST API using the Appery.io Server Code is also simple. In this blog post, I will show you how to invoke a test a script that calls the Everyone API.

To start, create a new Server Code script with the following code:

var telephone = request.get("telephone");
var url = "https://api.everyoneapi.com/v1/phone/"+telephone;
var auth_token  = "AU83e975.....";
var account_sid = "AC659275.....";

var XHRResponse = XHR2.send("GET", url, {
   "parameters": {
      "auth_token": auth_token,
      "account_sid": account_sid,
      "pretty": "true"
   }
});
Apperyio.response.success(XHRResponse.body, "application/json");

The only thing you need to do, is to replace the auth_token and account_sid with values from your account. Sign up for an account here. It’s fast and simple.

The phone number for which you want to get information is passed as a parameter to the script (line 1). To test the script, switch to Script parameter tab (on the right side), enter a parameter called telephone and then set it to a test value. Here is an example testing the API using the Appery.io telephone number:

AnyoneAPI Server Code script

Once you finished and tested the script, you easily import into your app. This video shows how to do that.

Looking for more APIs by Telo? Check out the CallerID Server Code plug-in:

Caller ID Server Code plug-in

This plug-in creates a Server Code script that integrates with OpenCNAM API. The OpenCNAM API allows you to get caller ID information for phone number provided.

Understanding AngularJS Dependency Injection in Appery.io App

Dependency Injection (DI) in AngularJS is one of the core capabilities of the framework. You simply specify on which objects a particular controller depends and AngularJS will automatically (and somewhat magically) inject those objects into your controller without you needing to do anything. In other words, you are going to get a reference to those object that you need without doing any work.

Try New Mobile App Example: Clickable List (Master-detail)

A list is presumably one of the most common UI components used in mobile apps today. Many apps show you a list of items, you click on a particular item and navigate to the details page. In the developer world this example is usually called master-detail. Not surprisingly many Appery.io developers are building their apps with a clickable list feature. Creating a clickable list is simple but to make it even simpler, we published an example app. The example loads a list of items from a database. Once you click on an item, you navigate to a second page and the details for that item are displayed.

How to get this app? When you create a new app, open the From example tab and select the Clickable List Example:

Creating new app based example

Your new app now contains the sample app. As the app uses a database, there is a very minimal setup that you need to do. You need to create a sample database and set the database API key in the app. It’s 5 steps that you find here.

This is an example of the database:

This is how the app looks when running. The first page shows the list:

the second page shows the details:

it’s also very easy to learn how this app is built inside the App Builder:

Building an app with a clickable list is simple, but with the out-of-the-box example, it’s even simpler. Give it a try!

How to Build Enterprise Mobile App Fast with Appery.io – Bay Area Enterprise Mobile App Meetup

I will be at the Bay Area Enterprise Mobile App Development Meetup in Mountain View, CA on Thursday, January 22 showing how to rapidly build mobile apps with Appery.io. Hope you can be there.

What

Gone are the days where you can afford to take months to build an enterprise mobile app. In today’s fast market, you need to be able to prototype the app in a few days, release the first version in a few weeks, get feedback, fix bugs, release the second version. Repeat. In this session you will learn how to use APIs and cloud platform for rapid mobile development. We will use the Appery.io mobile platform to build a real app. This is a live coding session where you will be able to test the app on your phone, and we will package the app for iOS/Android.

I will be at ModevCon in Washington, DC December 11-12 showing how to use cloud tools to build enterprise mobile apps fast with APIs fast.

What (my talk)

Friday, December 12, 11:30am ET.

Gone are the days where you can afford to take months to build an enterprise mobile app. In today’s fast market, you need to be able to prototype the app in a few days, release the first version in a few weeks, get feedback, fix bugs, release the second version. Repeat. In this session you will learn how to build a real HTML5/PhoneGap mobile app that talks to an API backend. You will be able to test the app on your phone. We will use the Appery.io mobile cloud dev. platform to build the app. Appery.io allows building enterprise HTML5/PhoneGap apps connected to any APIs entirely in the cloud, and very fast.

Why designing enterprise software is about more than looks

Gigaom

Design has always been a big deal in the consumer world, but we’ve got reason to believe it’s quickly becoming a huge deal in the enterprise world, explained Kyle Wild, the co-founder and CEO of Keen IO, at Gigaom’s Structure event in San Francisco.

Extrapolating from his company’s experience over the past two years, Wild attributed Keen IO’s rapid growth — without a marketing budget — to his company’s embrace of the ethos of design. “Inside a company, design is the process how you build things,” Wild said.

One of the major trends in terms of enterprise software is the increasing sophistication of enterprise buyers. In short, they’re all swayed by design. Many of these customers use smartphones at home, and on the smartphone platform, users choose apps all the time based on the design of the app. So they might be an enterprise buyer during the day, but when they go…
