Interview with Travis Daub

This week I had the pleasure of having Travis Daub, from MacNeil/Lehrer Productions, sharing a little of his beautiful magazine Triple Crown, available for free at the AppStore. The app is also found at the New and Noteworthy section of the store and it is a great example of the versatility of Kwik. Kwiksher: Can you tell a little bit about you and your company? I work for MacNeil/Lehrer Productions, which produces the PBS NewsHour. We’re a nightly national television news show which is distributed on public television stations. Several years ago, we integrated our digital and traditional broadcast groups in a step towards becoming more “platform neutral.” Since then,…

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…

Survey results and free webinar

Few weeks ago, 53 users voiced their opinion on what we should focus for the next Kwik’s release. The chart below shows that animation stills a top request, followed close by in-app purchase. 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…

Interview with Brian DeLong

This week I am glad to promote an interview with Brian from Rubber Chicken Media. He is the mind behind the beautiful The Woeful Tale of Anna Minster, waiting Apple’s approval, another app made with Kwik (in fact, as you will read, they are 2 apps! Brian brings us a very nice idea to promote your stories/apps even more). Kwiksher) Tell a little bit about you and your company: Rubber Chicken Media is a small interactive developer specializing in “bringing stories to life…one page at a time.” Combining traditional illustration techniques with the wonders of modern technology, our goal is to engage and entertain not only the young but also…

Good news…

First of all, I would like to apologize for spamming your inbox last Saturday. When I figured out that Path Animation couldn’t handle Sprite Sheets or Movie Clips, I promptly decide to re-write all affected modules to make this great new feature ready for all kinds of scenarios. Having in mind the amount of lines of code to re-write, my decision was to keep you posted that version 1.6 would be postponed and that previous projects should not be compatible anymore. Shame on me! With a fresh mind, I could re-write everything during the Sunday, and get the Beta ready for a few great testers. They have been great helping…

Interview with Rob Mabry

This week we interview Rob, from Sherbert Marketing, another author using Kwik. He is behind the The Zoophabets app, soon to be available at AppStore. 1) Tell a little bit about you and your company My wife and I are co-owners of Sherbert Marketing LLC. We started out as an e-commerce business and now own several niche e-commerce sites, but we are both huge nerds who love gadgets and gaming. I’ve been a hobbyist game developer for a decade toying with everything from Blender and Torque to Ogre and Unity 3D. However, it was always a hobby because there was just too much involved in delivering a full-fledged game on…

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.
