About

I wanted to build a simple iOS app to learn about iOS development, and build something that I felt would be useful to me when I was learning Chinese. Chinese measure words seemed like a great place to start, and with that this app was born!

About

Reps was built to solve a simple problem–scheduling and adding any kind of workout from a variety of offline and online sources. I wanted to collect them all in a single place for tracking, while making it easy to schedule and see my progress over time.

Features

  • Add workouts and schedule by date or recurring on week days.
  • Rate a workout, track progress and add notes when completing a workout.
  • See stats over time–such as number of minutes worked out, calories burned and more.
  • View charts to see how you’re progressing over time.
  • Workouts and preferences are synced between devices–simply add a workout on iPhone and have it show on your iPad and vice versa.

About

En Route to Fluency is a blog I started that documented and followed my progress over time as I learned Chinese. My goals were to articles across a variety of topics: Entertainment, Food, Games, History, Humor, Literature and more. I also shared some of my experiences studying and living abroad, study tips and tricks, and anything else that comes up along the journey.
