This is an app/interactive digital book that features portfolio of early SLR photography of an epic trek in the Himalayas. The iPad is the ultimate device for looking at photos--especially vintage slides-- as it uses a back-lit screen that allows the saturated colors and nuanced gradations of light to really shine.
The great thing about using a digital app for a book of photos is you can view the image all by itself, then, with the touch of a screen, a caption or other text can appear to give the image context.
The caption is tucked away out of sight until you tap or slide on the touchscreen and it appears. In this case, the text contains poems by the photographer.
Its possible to make a map fully interactive in an app/digital book. In this case, the various peaks of the Himalayan Range are marked on the map, when tapped, descriptive text and a photo of the peak pop up.
In a traditional printed book, it can sometimes be difficult to show a lot of photos and to have any meaningful relationship between the photos. Here, a series of snap shots that show a timeline of the trip can be viewed in chronological order by sweeping your finger across the screen.
Layers of information, that might overwhelm the reader if they were all crammed on the page at once, can be introduced in stages so the viewer can take in the content in manageable bites.
Background information about the primary content can be pulled down when the reader is ready to hear and see more.
The modern tablet has a high-definition, back lit screen that really allows photography, video, and graphics to shine. The kinds of projects that used to be glossy magazines or 50 lb coffee table books, now comes to you directly with a vibrancy and acuity unheard of in a printed publication.
Fun AND educational interactive content that plays right along with you...
HI NOTES is an app developed for tiny kids that introduces them to the rudiments of reading music in a fun and playful way.
Each element in the colorful illustration is musical, and plays a single note when tapped.
A simple form of musical notation scrolls across the top of the page, showing the sequence of elements within the illustration to tap in order to play a song.
A perfect introduction to making music for kids. It's a picture book that allows young children to "play" the colorful illustrations with the touch of a finger. Using an easy musical notation drawn from the images, it simply, stealthily, and playfully teaches little ones the rudiments of reading music.
