This quarter I did a lot of mobile development. For my Interaction Design for Entertainment class I decided to design and develop a web-based iPad app for Pinterest. Seeing as there isn’t an app for it (it’s in development), I thought it would be neat to put together the interface I felt would make sense. Six Revisions had a great article, Designing Web Apps for the iPad, that I used as a resource to help guide me in the right direction.
This was my first web-based app, and it was definitely a lot more challenging than I expected it to be. The API was unavailable, so I had to manually add images, which is why some of the images repeat. Plus I learned that a lot of web features may work in the browser, but they either work differently or not at all in a tablet browser. Hopefully once the API is released I can make it work in the future.
