Contest Winners Announcement

Last week we received the last batch of submissions for the first Kwik+Corona Labs+Code and Web contest. In total, 15 submissions, from children storybooks (the majority), to comics, adult storybook and games. Overall, great projects, making all of us very excited. Thank you very much for the submissions! Also, my kindest words to David and Inna from Corona Labs, and Andreas, from Code and Web! The following topics were evaluated to select the winners: Originality; Quality of illustrations; Story (for game or storybook); Use of Kwik 2 native features; Estimated time for publishing in, at least, one major store (as Kwik 2 is coming just in a few days, we…

Introducing Kwik 2 Beta

Few days ago, in a private session for paid users, I introduced Kwik 2 Beta. Today, I am pretty excited to public announce the beta availability to any user. This is a huge milestone till the official launch date, coming this fall. What is coming? Physics is a major thing in the new version but, don’t be fooled: Kwik 2 is much more than that. In fact, the plugin was re-written almost entirely. Besides the new interface, several improvements and additions are coming due your feedback. Honestly, there are so many new features that is hard to find the most important ones. Below my top 5 list: 1) New interface:…

Getting ready to take-off: Showcase, new tutorial and other updates

Showcase: Since we announced the Kwik Showcase,  3 new storybook apps were added: Frederik Spin, tell us the story of a little spider who loves to create webs using gorgeous illustrations; Hello World Idodo’s Dreamy Adventure, allow us to travel with the little Idodo around the world; Oho the Monkey, brings us to the jungle to meet their friends. In all the cases above, no external code was added (pure Kwik apps as I like to say), confirming that Kwik can do its job no matter the experience of its users. Here goes Sparky again! This week Ansca’s announced Sparky the Shark as App of the Month (May) which is…

Happy 1st Anniversary Kwik!

As you have probably noticed, in celebration of our 1-year Anniversary we have launched our new site… and that’s just the beginning! When I think back, it is hard to imagine that it has been only a year since I launched Kwiksher and its first product: Kwik – a revolutionary Photoshop plugin that levels the app-development playing field, enabling everyone from first-timers to professional designers to build mobile apps and interactive storybooks quickly and easily without the need for coding skills. At the time I was pretty confident the product would be a success, but honestly, I never imagined it would be so well received. Especially when I look back…

Results from the past surveys: monetization and new interface

In the past weeks many of you were very kind providing feedback and sharing information. Saying that, I think it is nice from my side to share the results of the past 2 surveys. Hope you see some value here! Monetization 82 users responded the survey about monetization. 3 questions were asked: Have you published a paid app/storybook with Kwik? If so, how much did you earn? 20 users answered yes. Only one of the respondents made more than $1,000 in sales. Another one made more than $500, and 18 earned less than $500 since launch. The third question for me was the most important one: Did you market your…

New iPad projects or not?

The new iPad is here and it’s Retina screen is really great (I have mine in hands at this moment). The big question now is: should you build your projects or not for the new device? Wait before simply answer “Of course!”. You will see the answer is not that simple. Let’s start with some facts first: – due the size and resolution of the screen, your projects will grow (average) 3x in size; – only 6% of the iPad market is running the new device at this moment; – projects made for the old iPads will automatically be re-scaled by iOS 5.1, with no need of rewriting code (you…

Interview with Miss Pivot

Today I like to share my chat with the Miss Pivot team, creators of Fire Cupid, an amazing app made partially with Kwik. Enjoy! How did Kwik help you to build it? Any favorite features? We needed a way to build animations / interactions in to our infographics. Since we design everything in Photoshop, it was really nice to animate everything from there. Our favorite feature ending up being the built in animation effects. We found the animations and interactions to work the same on both iPad and Android devices. Any trick/tip you would like to share? I found that sometimes things don’t work they way you think they will….
