BA Redemption Finder

BA Redemption Finder

Finding opportunities to use your Avios (the air miles scheme used by British Airways and others) is tough. BA like to keep it this way - after all, availability isn't great!

By using a private API from the Avios Flight Finder iOS app, BA redemption finder makes it simple to find ways to use your miles.

Simply enter where you're going from and where you want to go, the fare class and the number of seats and you'll get a full list of dates you can travel. This has never been possible until now!

The site is no longer live as the underlying private API is no longer available, but the app is preserved for posterity here.

Sold Near Me

Sold Near Me

Sold Near Me made it easy to track property prices near you, or where you're interested in purchasing.

Users simply entered their postcode, email and how widely they wanted to search around the location, and then they received regular updates on prices.

The service used open data from the Land Registry, Ordnance Service, Royal Mail and the Office of National Statistics.

Sold Near me is no longer online.

LSE Librarian

LSE Librarian

An app for students at the London School of Economics and Political Science, built when I was studying at the university, for renewing library books on the go.

Originally, I built this app using Phonegap but since then, I re-built it in native Objective-C, with new functionality and a way better experience.

The app is no longer available, with LSE having threatened legal action if I did not take it down.
