We were stoaked when we were asked recently to put together a web services for NAWLZ, an online interactive comic that recently released an iPad version of its award-winning comic.
We love the comic so considered it an honour to be able to contribute in some small way.
The creator wished to be able to provide ‘VIP access’ and trial subscriptions to users for the purpose of reviewing and promotion.
We developed a ‘back end’ where the creator could generate tokens that would then be emailed to the designated user. When the user enters their details on the iPad app, the app would check with the web service and then provide additional access depending on the result.
Simple enough but good fun too.
Tech notes: The web service was build using PHP
and MySQL. The data was transmitted as JSON over an SSH connection.
