View Full Version : A twitter App using Sencha Touch

8 Mar 2011, 3:52 AM
I want to make an android or an iphone app which uses the geolocation and the twitter api.
I want to search the tweets based on some keywords, and then by applying some logic i want to filter the unnecessary results out.
I just want to know few things, like what is the best way to do the filter operation. Can i use php code to do this, requesting json data and then using sencha touch to display it.
Will this work when i will convert this into a mobile app which has xcode and java as their basic language.
I was having a look at this tube tweet app, but they don't have the native app version for it.
Any kind of advice would be of great help.

I would work to use the Twitter API to its fullest and do as little filtering on our server or the client as possible.

:) Hi Jay, wow, thanks for replying.
Is the twitter api that good, because filtering out all those f words and all kind of reuires a lot of logic, i don't know. There can be more than 30 keywords based on which i will grab the tweets, then i need to remove a lot of tweets, because i don't want to show them in my app.
Please do answer my second question too.
Is it possible to request to code using php and then having a native app later.
confused :(
