== The Official iFixit iOS App ==

This is a native iPad guide viewer built using iFixit's public APIs at

APIs used:
 * /api/areas
 * /api/guides
 * /api/device
 * /api/guide
 * /api/search
 * /api/likes


This app is just the beginning. It only implements a small subset of iFixit's
functionality: the native view of a repair guide. We'd love to do all sorts of other
things, too. Here's a wishlist:
 * Create nifty splash home screen, rather than defaulting to web view
 * Add native search
 * Store repair guides offline, so you don't need a net connection to fix things
 * Add native views for Area pages and Device pages, removing most of the need for web
 * Allow browsing and adding notes
 * iPhone support
We have a small development team, and don't have the resources to do all of these
ourselves. We'd love help! If any of those problems looks interesting to you, fork our
code and hack away!

Got an awesome feature idea that we don't have an API to support yet? Post the request on and we'll add it to our to-do list.
