Hello, I'm Tomer

A programmer & engineer who's super interested in apps, code, IoT/hardware, 3D modeling, and most things tech related. Currently working at Lutron Electronics as a senior software developer.

Projects

Here are some of the things I have done in my spare time.

ON/AORE Campus Challenge app

After seeing my Philly Activity Poster I was hired to make the official ON/AORE app & backend to allow students to register and post in the ON/AORE Campus Challenge as well as view profiles and leaderboards. Available on iOS and Android.

ParkPassport

One of my contracting jobs included working for the National Park Service to make The ParkPassport mobile app & backend. An easy way to find parks near you, track your activity, and share with friends. Available on iOS and Android.

Thingiverse 3D Designs

In my spare time I like to design and 3D print useful objects. I upload most of my custom designs for free on Thingiverse.

Flight Simulator Hardware

With costs of good flight simulator controls being extremely high, I made my own for cheap using Arduino & 3D printing. See how I made it, and the final products on Google Photos.

Reverse Engineering a Mobile API

One of my first reverse engineering projects. I reverse engineered the Drexel One mobile API using a MITM attack and decompilation. Read the full post on Medium.

YapTap Android app

For this project I was hired by WhoWentOut Inc to make an Android app to pair with their existing iOS app. This app let you send audio snippets to friends using your voice or Spotify. Developed for Android.

Mr.Chunker

This app uses Bluetooth LE to control your Mr.Chunker. It allows you to set specific settings, predict bait use, and directly control the machine. Available on iOS and Android.

Minecraft Server Widget

This app is a nifty iPhone/Mac widget using Apple Catalyst that can show you who is playing on a Minecraft server in real time. It's open source on GitHub and available on iOS & Mac.

NotiBlock Jailbreak Tweak

After being annoyed with the lack of filter options for app notifications, I wrote a custom jailbreak tweak to be able to create custom filters to block them. It was written about by iDownloadBlog, open source on GitHub, and published to the official BigBoss Jailbreak Repository.

Alexa Smart TV

After being shocked that I couldn't control my smart tv with my voice i developed a cool open source program that runs on a rasberry pi along with an Alexa skill that allows you to control your TV using Alexa. According to Alexa analytics it has on average 45 daily active users. Available & open source on GitHub.

Drexel GPA Calculator

The first mobile app I ever made. While it may not look pretty it hold a special place in my heart. This app allows to to calculate and predict your gpa. Available on iOS and Android.
