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…

Update on K2

If you follow Kwik in Twitter (@kwiksher) or Facebook (/kwiksher) you know already that development keeps going. In fact, I have even provided a glimpse in a previous post. The aim of today’s update is to give you more info on current progresses. So, before asking “when the new version will be available”, keep in mind that we are still months (in plural ) away from K2. The list below includes only things that are already coded and tested (there are lots of other stuff to come): Ability to include video, web, map, text input, vectors, dynamic text, and more as replacements; Export module was re-written and it is much…

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…
