iPad Application Development

iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch Application Development:

Looking for a developer to build applications for the iPad, iPhone or iPod
Touch?
We Can Help. Programmers Who Care. Code That Works. Apps That Deliver.

Top
Five Reasons To Create an iPhone Application or iPad Application:
1.
Stay in front of your customers:
Nothing is as personal
for people as their cell phone. iPhone users tend to use their phones
as not just a telephonic communication device — they use their
iPhone to check email, text with friends, and use iPhone applications
for 150,000 other purposes. An iPhone application or iPad application
that a customer downloads onto their device gives them one-click
access to your content, brand and information.
2.
Mobile Web is Good… But Not As Compelling As An App:
With
an iPad or iPhone, users have the opportunity to browse websites
using the built-in Safari web browser (although Flash isn’t supported).
That said, an iPhone application or iPad application allows you
to wrap your content in an easy-to-navigate manner. with a website,
you’re limited to graphics and content pages, but an iPhone or iPad
application that’s designed and developed for your audience connects
with people on a fundamentally different level than a web browser
on a mobile device can.
3.
Early Adopters Think It’s Cool.
The fact is that most companies
expand (or contract) based on a few influential customers or stakeholders.
If you’re able to provide the early adopters a way that they can
look cool by telling others they should download your iPhone app
or iPad app onto their mobile device, you’ll be able to geometrically
expand the reach of your organization.
4.
It forces you to create a compelling experience for your customers.
Unlike the process of building a website or a tri-fold
marketing brochure, developing an iPhone application or iPad application
forces you to make sure that you are organizing content properly,
and creating a compelling experience. We’ve found it helps you focus
on the ‘need to know’ information vs. the ‘nice to know’ information
that often takes up the screen real estate on a full website. .
5.
It’s where your customers already are.
Companies are finding
that traditional marketing means (print, TV, radio, direct mail)
are generating lower response rates. Why? Customers are engaged
in social media, and increasingly they are interacting with others
not in front of a PC or laptop, but from their iPhone and now iPad.
Reach out to them with a well-designed iPad application or iPhone
app.

iPad Review: Why You Should Purchase an iPad

iPad
Review: Why You Should Buy One
It’s
a really amazing device.

Do
I Really Need Yet Another Device?

I’m
a heavy computer user. Part of this is because I’m in the
tech industry. I have a big laptop, a dual-screen desktop,
a computer at home, a netbook, and I carry around a BlackBerry.

So
why would I want another device, too? The answer is that none
of the other devices I own can do what the iPad can do.

Minimalism
At It’s Best

Have
you noticed that the expensive homes that people like to purchase
are often devoid of lots of stuff? Kitchens have drawers for
everything — so you don’t have anything out on the countertops.
Closets have four shirts hanging on hangers. The focus is
on what’s not there….

Instead
of trying to cram everything into a device, so that nothing
works really that well, the iPad is a device that’s been designed
with as few buttons as possible.

iPad Home Screen screenshot

The
iPad doesn’t do everything. It’s not going to replace a desktop
or laptop computer. And to me, that may be part of it’s appeal.


No, it doesn’t have a USB port. No camera. No flash support.
I can’t add more memory to it. The keyboard isn’t easy to
type on. My model is Wi-Fi only – so some things won’t work
outside a Wi-Fi hotspot. And it’s not dishwasher safe.

Is
it more than just an oversized iPhone or iPod Touch? The answer
is yes. The iPhone is a great device. It’s screen is much,
much larger, and it opens up tremendous new possibilities.

Plus,
my two daughters love it too. It’s a testament to good design
that a 2 year old and a five year old can figure out how to
use it without much trouble.

I Bought the iPad because of Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Last
week, we receive a phone call from the president of a major
television studio, who found our company using a Google search.
He’s interested in having us possibly develop iPad and iPhone
Applications for their studio, and was flying in a day later.

So…
I raced out to the Apple store here in Boulder to purchase
one. It was busy, and while I waited a couple of minutes for
a sales person to help me, I chatted with a former professor
of mine from the CU MBA program, who was looking at them as
well.

I
raced back to the office to get started. The only downside:
you have to have the most recent version of iTunes (a 93 mb
download) running on your computer in order to even turn it
on.

Designing
Websites

Instead
of looking at a screen, with the iPad, it’s easy to lay the
device down on a table, and look at a website with someone
else. Zooming in is easy, and as long as your website was
designed to be compatible with Safari’s browser (and doesn’t
have too much flash), it’s a great way to collaborate.

iPad Screenshot of Web Browser – click image
for larger view

The
browser is fast, and allows you to have multiple tabs open
easily. If there’s a flash animation on the site, it displays
as a white box. For this reason, I recommend if you have a
website with a lot of flash in it, create a static gif or
jpg image of the animation to load behind the flash animation,
so that users without flash see something other than a plain
white space on your web page.

Displaying
Photos

As
a photographer with images on display in museums in three
countries, it’s always a challenge to find a clean, crisp
way to show people compelling images. Carrying a laptop is
good, but the iPad allows you to import high-resolution images
(via iTunes), and then display them easily in albums.

It’s
really easy to hand someone the device, or place it on a table.
The slideshow function allows you to have the iPad scroll
through images automatically.

Reading
Books

Over
the weekend, I read two 500-page books on the iPad. Not having
to read with a flashlight at night is nice: the backlit screen
is clear, and easy to read. You can adjust the font size,
and read in either a horizontal or vertical view.

I
read the new Clive Cussler book, The Silent Sea,
purchased for $9.95 through iTunes. I also read a free murder-mystery
book, too, called Ransom X. In both books I found a couple
of typos… it seemed that perhaps the versions uploaded to
the Apple store were rushed and may not have been the final
copy. But I also tend to find typos in the New York Times,
too, so I’m a bit pickier than most.

iPad - iBook viewer

Winnie
the Pooh is the sample book that is included with the iBook
reader system, and my two daughters really love me reading
to them before bed. Their favorite part is turning the pages…
which consists of a simulated page turn by dragging your finger
on the page and flicking it to the left.

You
can download thousands of free books, too, and you can also
download Kindle software to the iPad, too, although the Kindle
reader for the iPad seems only to support books, and not newspapers
and magazines.

Watching
Videos

If
you have young kids, you know that a car trip can either be
a source of a lot of fun, or a lot of anguish. With the iPad,
our 5 year old told me that the hour and forty-five minute
drive felt a lot more like a 15 minute trip.

Before
we left, I went to the Sesame Street Website, and subscribed
to their weekly podcast. The iPad downloaded all of the movies,
so it could be used offline.

iPad Video viewer screenshot
iPad Screenshot of Video Player – click image
for larger view

The
iPad can use headphones, but it also has a speaker that works
pretty well. Our older daughter was able to select and start
each video and hold the iPad so that her little sister could
see the screen, too.

With
a 10 hour battery life, the iPad was a hit in the car.

Lots
and Lots of Apps

There’s
already a lot of applications that have been designed specifically
for the iPad. USA Today has a great news reader.

Bloomberg has an amazing graphical interface for the financial
folks. The Netflix app allows you to manage your que, as well
as watch videos.

My
favorite app though for the iPad, though, is the iFish Pond
application. It’s $1.99, and is also a big favorite for my
two daughters. You can move your hands through the water and
see the water ripple in reaction; you can feed the fish (or
scare them if you touch the water nearby).

Other
great apps include Pro Keys, a piano simulator, and the Calculator
XL, which turns the iPad into a retro-looking calculator.

Twitteriffic
is a great Twitter application that leverages the larger screen
size, and AstroGizmo is an amazing way to hold your iPad up
and see the constellations and planets.

My Congress is an app that allows you to find your member
of Congress, and see news, information and how they voted.
EyeWitness is an application that brings the most compelling
news photo each day.

And
all of the 150,000 iPhone and iPod Touch apps work, too, on
the iPad. My five year old has been enjoying the Simon Classic
memory game. Some of the apps look a little fuzzy if you blow
them up to use the whole screen, but it’s nice to have everything
available.

iPad - Simon Classic memory Game

A
few apps don’t work so well, however. The Men’s Health application
seems to just be a scanned in version of their magazine…
and the text was very difficult to read. The Time Magazine
app is solid, but what I didn’t realize is that for $4.95,
I was only downloading a single issue. I’m already a subsciber
to the print version, so the one-time download of content
is fine to read once, but it would be more ideal if it updated
itself with content (like the NY Times and USA Today applications).

The
Associated Press (AP)’s news application is also top-notch,
and has an intuitive way for navigating stories. Plus, it
can customize the news based on your location, so I can get
the AP stories local to Boulder, Colorado, for example.

iPad - iPhone Application for Associated Press

Mail
Program

The
mail program is a bit weak. Definitely not as good as a laptop
or desktop-based mail system. I’m a heavy email user — I
receive 800-1000 email messages a day. My biggest complaint:
no way to mark all of your messages as "read" or
do a bulk delete.

iPad email inbox screenshot
iPad Screenshot of Mail application – click
image for larger view

The
Mail program does display HTML emails nicely, however. What
I wound up doing is creating a special, dedicated email address
just for the iPad, so I could email from and to the device,
but not have to worry about trying to download hundreds of
emails each time.

For
email users that don’t receive the heavy volume of email that
I do, the iPad is a great secondary device, but because of
the on-screen keyboard, it’s probably not ideal to replace
your laptop or desktop computer any time soon.

Calendar

The
calendar has a beautiful interface, and I was able to get
it to synchronize with my Google Calendar fairly easily. Again,
this won’t be my primary calendar, but it’s wonderful that
I can see my calendar quickly and easily through the system.

iPad - iCalendar screenshot

Summary

The
iPad is not meant to replace your laptop or desktop computer.
It doesn’t do everything. And that’s the the point.

If
you’re looking for an intuitive, well-designed device — you
can’t miss. Enjoy!
