New Croatian version of our website

Yesterday we launched a new, redesigned version of our Croatian website – inchoo.hr. The new design follows the inchoo.net’s look and feel with a little twist in the header to improve the differentiation of the two websites. The difference is obvious in the color scheme and contour of our hometown Osijek that can be seen in the header.

Parsing Amazon affiliate links in WordPress

On the web, we have wordpress installation and inside main content of web page we have some Amazon affiliate links that entered in the content few years ago and not working any more because Amazon changed API somehow.

WordPress for Android

There I was yesterday, sitting at the caffe bar, waiting for friends to arrive. Newspaper news were boring since the topics were all about standard politics. During these times I often check latest comments on this blog and moderate (approve or spam) them.

New Inchoo.net Design

Hi Everyone. Since I started working at Inchoo – in fact since my interview, Tomislav (our CEO) has been talking about the revamping of Inchoo.net. In Brazil we have a popular saying: “In a blacksmith’s house, the skewer is made of wood”, which can be applied to almost all types of businesses. You know the drill, unless something is really hurting, we keep our non-billable projects on the back-burner and keep the focus on our clients and opportunities for new projects. Thankfully, we found a gap in between projects and I was the designer responsible.

Where are my geocoins? Landsharkz is launched!

Do you know what is geocaching? It is an outdoor activity where the members use navigational techniques (ex. GPS) to hide and seek containers (called “geocaches” or “caches”) anywhere in the world.

A geocoin, on the other hand, is a metal or wooden coin minted in similar fashion to a medallion, token coin, military challenge coin or wooden nickel. They are usually trackable on the relevant website using a serial number and website address engraved on the coin. It is a little hard to describe the whole process in two sentences, so we’ll get to the point of this article. We present you Landsharkz, online store where you can purchase Geocaching Supplies and Geocoins.
