Guest Post: Creating the Flickering Candle Sprite

This week I invited Malcolm, from Linlou Creative Arts, to share with us some tips on his current project. I hope you enjoy and get excited to contact me to share yours too! Below, Malcolm words: One of our current interactive projects is a Christmas story titled “The Night Before Christmas……The Gift.” In looking for creative ways to display the story text we wanted to use a window that had a very rich, old text looking sort of appearance. What we settled on was an ancient parchment scroll. In keeping with our ancient text theme, we thought it would be cool to illuminate the scroll window with candle light. Candle…

[Updated Posting] In-App Purchase in Kwik 1.7 – Walk-through

In the past months, several requests about In-App Purchase (IAP) with Kwik came up and, according our police to provide your requests first, I would like to announce that IAP will be one of the top features of the upcoming 1.7 version. I have to say that I am curious why this is one of the top requisitions. IAP is complex to setup (more below) and most of the current apps made with Kwik at this moment don’t seem to require this new feature. Saying that, I would like to anticipate how to use IAP with Kwik 1.7. First thing to understand is that IAP can be implemented in two…

A little behind, multi-language projects, ebook export, then magazine related features. 28 open-ended responses were received, most of them proposing new features, asking for long term requests (mostly page curl ), and sharing good words about Kwik (in fact, only 1 complained about bugs not fixed – I personally would love to receive the list of them for this unknown user). For the full list (total transparency commitment), check here. Again, thanks for your help here. All…
