A few tips and tricks from an user

Better than us to give you some tips on the best way to use Kwik, this week Selen Pekun, from Turkey, was kind enough to share some of her tricks on using our plugin. She is behind one of the most beautiful storybooks made with Kwik (not yet published). Kwiksher) Selen, please tell us a little bit about you. My name is Selen Pekun. I live and work in Turkey. I am a TV Graphics Designer at a local sports channel named “NTV Spor” for about 3,5 years. I do and take iPad children’s books animations as a part of my future project. How long have you been using Kwik?…

Just an update

As you could see from the previous post, we are already working on the next release of our plugin. Your suggestions and our own list of desired features, have kept us very busy. The survey some of you answered, clearly defined the top 4 priorities we should focus on (I am excluding the Page Curl effect as it needs Ansca’s work) for the next releases. They were: In-app purchase Multi-language projects Path animations Random actions Let me share where we are on these topics: In-app purchase: we moved this to version 1.7 or later, mostly due the fact Corona does not offer this option for Android yet. Although Android is…

Sneak preview and Morris Lessmore

If you, like me, is also a fan of The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris (by Moonbot Studios), one of the most successful iPad books, you are in love with the interactions present in the app. One of my favorites is the spinning house (you rotate the house with your finger): With Kwik 1.6 already cooking, I got the sample code from ChunkyApps (available at the Sample Code are from Ansca’s website) and integrate it in the upcoming version. Check the first sneak preview: Cool, no? More about the next release in the next days. Alex

Interview with Jerry Pine

This week we chat with Jerry, from Psi Media Publishers, the forth published author using Kwik. Jerry is behind the My Weekly Journal and Scrapbook app, available at AppStore: http://itunes.apple.com/app/my-weekly-journal-scrapbook/id454803335?mt=8 Tell a little bit about you: I’m a school psychologist with a former background in media production. I and my wife, who is a clinical psychologist and university professor, produced a few apps designed to run on PCs sometime back using the now defunct Macromedia Authorware and another authoring system called iShell, which is QT based and still available, I think. Our audience was the mental health community. With the downturn in the economy and the emergence of iOS apps,…

Our new user

Last June we had our first survey to learn better about our users (at that moment, Kwik was only a month and a half old). A few things have changed since then according our August’s survey (28 respondents). Here are our findings: a) Most users (72%) are using Kwik for more than a month; b) 72% of them are using Kwik to build storybook apps (this number was 61% in June); c) 79% found us via Ansca’s communications (84% in June), meaning we are reaching more people from other vehicles (friends recommendation and search were mentioned a lot this time); d) 64% are from the United States, with customers all…

“Who are you” Survey

Most of you have received an invitation to fill out another quick survey on who are you, what are you doing with Kwik and what are your needs for future versions. If you want to tell us and did not received the invitation, here goes the link: https://app.icontact.com/icp/sub/survey/take As usual, we are going to publish the results here (the good and the ugly) in a few days. Meanwhile (as we do not ask for your email/name), if you are the person who wrote the comment below, please let us know via support@kwiksher.com (you don’t need to pay again until we announce version 2, which is really far to happen): “frustrated…

Interview with Nick Nebelsky

This week we chat with Nick, from Intense Media, the second published author using Kwik. Nick is behind the Opening Rome app, available at AppStore: http://itunes.apple.com/app/opening-rome/id450064939?mt=8 Tell a little bit about you and your company: I created Intense Media as a way of incorporating all of my talents under one roof, if you will. It’s a place where I can use my design skills, love for photography, cartooning, animation, and publishing to create products that are useful, entertaining, and engaging. Since childhood, I knew that I would own a company where I could create. And I have owned other creative and successful publishing companies in the past. In 2009, I…

Timers, Widgets and launch date

This post closes the review on version 1.5, which will be launched on August, 10th. At this moment, a few users are beta testing the updated plugin. The day of the launch will be also the day introductory price ends. If you haven’t bought Kwik yet, it is time now to get it with the current price. Last June (less than 2 months ago) we surveyed 50 people about the features they expected most in future releases: We are proud to report that we delivered some of them with old updates (more actions per button, better demos and auto handling of layer names). Version 1.5 however is an answer to…
