iOS Product Showcase App
This project represents my first serious application development on an iOS platform – in this case specifically the iPad. I was part of a team of two developers and several designers from The Greater Good that were tasked with creating a slick showcase app for Teledyne-Dalsa‘s cameras to be displayed at a German tradeshow.
It was an enjoyable programming experience and I am now completely enamoured with Objective-C and the Cocoa as they seem to be very well thought out platforms. Specifically I enjoyed how animated tweens between views and objects are built right in. It is nice to see a framework with aesthetics built right into it.
The most trouble I had with the project, besides the initial learning curve, would probably be wrestling with the core animation classes to get some pseudo-3D effects within the PDF Viewer (folding and pinch to rotate/scale images). In the future I would probably code any 3D effects in OpenGL to give more flexibility (when there is more time to spare).
Other than that a very enjoyable experience as I was able to work with some very talented people on a amazing piece of hardware.
