The Silent History Represents A New Type Of Storytelling On iOS Devices - redo w link

The Silent History Represents A New Type Of Storytelling On iOS Devices - redo w link | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
The Silent History could finally change how we read e-books on our iOS devices.

 

Much has been written about the steady decline of traditional books as e-readers and tablets have gained in popularity. This movement, however, really hasn’t changed the overall reading experience that remains much the same as it has for centuries. Even on our iPad, we still advance through a story one page after another, front to back.

The Silent History represents a much different type of storytelling, and one that effectively makes use of many of the features of iOS devices, including portability and GPS. The story itself is also quite good. The result is a presentation that is transformative, interactive, and at times, creepy. And one that, if proven successful, could change how future e-books are designed.

 

The Story

 

Set in 2044, the fictional Silent History looks back at 32 years of research on a strange phenomenon that leaves children speechless from the moment of birth. It is told through the use of “testimonials” written and collected since 2011 from those closest to the disease or most affected, including parents, doctors, teachers, and the occasional cult leader.

 

These testimonials each serve a vital, yet at times, different purpose. They may be a character portrait, short story, or just one part of a larger plot.

It would be great if we all had the time, skills, and patience to learn computer coding, especially since technology pervades so many areas of our life.

 

Infinite Monkeys is a a web-based tool geared toward niche communities who want to share content on the iPhone and Android platforms. Infinite Monkeys is not as polished theme wise as Buzztouch, but unlike the latter, Infinite Monkeys, says the developers, “Is completely web-based, and works on any computer or tablet device. You never touch the source code and don’t have to know what it is or how it works.” There are several other differences that also might make Infinite Monkey more accessible to non-programmers than Buzztouch. But you’re free to explore both and see which fits your needs.


Web-based GUI


Infinite Monkeys’ web-based graphic user interface allows users to incorporate existing web content from social networking sites like Twitter, Flickr, YouTube, and blogging sites....

How To Create An iPhone Or Android App Without Any Coding Skills

How To Create An iPhone Or Android App Without Any Coding Skills | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

Learning how to code and produce a basic iPhone or Android app is not a simple drag and drop process. While Apple’s Xcode helps lay down the foundation for building an iPhone app, it can take hours of coding and trial and error to produce a basic RSS feed or portfolio application.


But if you’re really eager to make a mobile app based on your website, business, organization, or just a fun quiz game, a website called Buzztouch may well be the web-based solution for you. Buzztouch is essentially Content Management Software for iOS and Android. It provides a template-based process in which you import your app’s information into the online software, and in turn it will create the code that you need to compile the data for your application. I gave a try and it does work....
