Yellow Pages Mobile

Yellow Pages Responsive Website for Mobile and Tablets (Desktop coming soon)

After much needed work on the Yellow Pages Mobile website, the team undertook the task of rewriting the site using Responsive Web Design techniques. The team benefited from the rapid application development provided by the Grails framework and is further aided by the plugins available in the ecosystem. As such, the team was able to focus explicitly on building the features of the site rather than spend time on plumbing.

The framework's foundation in Java/JVM also helped the team a great deal as their primary proficiency was in Java and learning Groovy was relatively straightforward for them. All in all, the experience with the Grails framework has been overwhelmingly positive.

We built an online To Do List and Project Management application called Manymoon on Grails. The framework helped us quickly develop a simple, working product that we could release to customers and start gathering feedback. Grails made it easy for us to quickly iterate and improve the application based on this feedback. We also liked the integration with Hibernate and Spring since it reduces the amount of time to develop and test code. We have received great feedback from customers on Manymoon...especially the performance! Manymoon is like Facebook for projects and you can use it today to manage your software development project.

The IT Solution is based on Grails + Jboss -Tomcat using https for all transactions and Mysql database . It works with desktop and most mobile devices ( Bootstarp backed ) More info and demo available upon request

The business rules -Our LA customers buy with credit cards bitcoins and they pay in local currencies to the cc company.(ies) - -We buy and sell bitcoins on behalf of them and deposit the cash in the USA accounts so they can legally transfer dollars to USA to a good rate and we get our fees. this emulates in a smaller scale some stock exchange operations done in LA called ( example) contado con liqui or contado futuro

I say legally as technically Bitcoins are not a legal currency ,so no LA monetary regulation is 'touched' or offended.

To prevent money laundering we have limited our customers to 2000 u$s a month and 20,000 u$s a year.

Also our company is located in Cayman to ensure privacy to customers

Besides ,we have a solid reserve to absorb bitcoin fluctuations and we handle the buy & sell thru different traders worldwide , to reduce that risk.

Any comment welcome
