Today a customer directed my attention to brilliantly created app from Atomic Antelope:
(I have no further insight on how this app was created, I’d assume custom development.)
However that reminded me of a prototype I created for a customer last August:
He wanted to create a customer magazine for an aerospace manufacturer in which you could run a glass ball over a technical drawing by just tilting the iPad. And whenever the glass ball hit a certain hot spot of the drawing, a popup would appear that explained technical details.
To achieve that in Quark App Studio, which he used to create the interactive magazine, programming via the App Framework seemed to be overkill.
The result you can see here: mykiosk://www.quarkforums.com/appstudio/Gyrotest.zave (to get the URL working you need to tab it on a physical iPad and have the free Quark Issue Previewer installed first).
Both an engineer and a layout artist, Matthias bridges the gap between technology and people. Before joining Quark in 1997, Matthias pioneered print, Web, and multimedia products for multiple German publishing companies. He is an active participant in design and publishing communities and represented Quark in the Ghent PDF Workgroup.
From 1997 until 2019 Matthias played a central role in shaping Quark’s desktop, mobile and enterprise software. From February 2014 until January 2019 he headed Quark’s Desktop Publishing business unit; and was therefore responsible for QuarkXPress.
Matthias does not work for Quark anymore. If you want to connect with him, please visit his LinkedIn profile on https://www.linkedin.com/in/mguenther/
