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.
