  • iPad app/folio designers - help!

    I've been checking out the Virgin Project and The Times infographics (youtube vid) and have a few questions you may be able to answer...

    First of all, were they made in Indy CS5 with the Overlay Creator? Or with flash/Adobe AIR or something?

    Most of those apps that are being done by big companies, ie: Times, or any Conde-Nast magazine are being built from scratch by programmers in-house (or contracted).
    As far as I know, there is no "easy" way to get there at this stage. You have to be able to program and get the device to do what you want.

    As of yet, Indy CS5 has not been integratable into the iPad. They are apparently working on it last I checked.

      Well as it is, I'm creating my folios (iPad magazine apps) with the Adobe DPS package, which includes Overlay Creator, Bundler, Viewer - and a custom Indy script. I'm using a few pre-release updates of these programs, but the difference between those and the released stuff isn't that big.

      I can do a lot of the stuff they've done with the Virgin Project and Times, but there are a few functions which I can't replicate. I can't believe they custom-program this stuff. There must be some program or plug-in I don't know about.

          Woohoo! I found out that Virgin Project was made with WoodWing - not Adobe DPS. Apparently, WoodWing is a lot more functional than Adobe.

          So it looks like the specific functions I wanted to replicate from them just can't be done with the Overlay Creator. Looks like you were right about the Times' infographics, Audentia - they're made by a company called Applied Works who reveal nothing about how they do it, except that they have "programmers" working on the project.

          If any of you are considering buying software for creating iPad magazines - it's worth checking out WoodWing. I can't use it at work, because we're tied in with the Adobe pre-release program - but I'll see if I can get my hands on some WoodWing anyway.

            Thank you so much for your input. What you said about Joomla templates basically dictating the look and feel of the site is basically the reason I've held so long to my current site. I have not found...

            Biggs097
            Keep in mind the cost of the tooling the dye is a one time cost. The next lot of cards wont include the tooling cost.
            StudioMonkey is also correct of the cost vs. your volume. 100 cards may run...

            Joomla is my CMS of choice. For that matter, I'm working on some template modifications for a Joomla site this morning.

            For a small personal site, Joomla might be overkill. It's certainly...
