How changing Trainz Driver's app icon saw sales jump tenfold | Matmi Staff finds... | Scoop.it
N3V Games was more than aware of the importance of app icons when the studio was preparing to launch Trainz Driver for iPhone.
Matmi's insight:

Possibly one of the most overlooked elements of mobile games development. Make sure your icon does what it says on the tin!

Star Trek Into Darkness Augmented Reality App Released

Star Trek Into Darkness Augmented Reality App Released | Matmi Staff finds... | Scoop.it

The app has a bevy of cool features, serving up trailers, news and other snippets of info about the upcoming movie. The most intriguing feature however is the augmented reality aspect, involving virtual scavenger hunt in which players will use their smartphones to scan photos and other imagery, use audio and location-based services to unlock new content and earn points. For example, after clicking on the maps portion of the app, I’ve been directed to visit the future site of Starfleet Academy in San Francisco, which will no doubt use location-based services to unlock a new feature.This app is the first commercially distributed app to feature the use of some of Qualcomm’s new tech, the Gimbal platform and Qualcomm Vuforia augmented reality tool.

Matmi's insight:

I love this app. Not so much for the Star Trek aspect of it but because of all the great features they have crammed into one app. If I didn't know better, I'd think it was a new Matmi app. Certainly close to the type of products we are currently developing.

New Augmented Reality App Makes Japanese Newspaper into a Game for Kids

New Augmented Reality App Makes Japanese Newspaper into a Game for Kids | Matmi Staff finds... | Scoop.it

The Japanese newspaper Tokyo Shimbun has launched a new app which they hope will attract beginning readers into an aging customer base.



The app, AR News, uses augmented reality to promote certain stories published in the print edition of the daily newspaper. Kids can scan selected articles with an iPhone and the app will show them a “kid-friendly” version with animated characters and graphics, pop-up headlines and explanations about the topics being discussed. The online version of the stories are rewritten so they are easier for beginning readers to understand, with the Kanji characters replaced with the simplified Hiragana alphabet.

Matmi's insight:

A really cool way to try and get children reading and learning. ^SL

Sony: MiniDisc Is (Finally) Dead

Sony: MiniDisc Is (Finally) Dead | Matmi Staff finds... | Scoop.it
While rumors have suggested it in the past, it's now official: after years of complete and utter redundancy, Sony is finally killing off the MiniDisc. Sony has announced that it will ship its last MiniDisc player in March of 2013.
Matmi's insight:

Ah the MiniDisk. I remember when they first came out. They were pushed as the future, the next stage on from CD's. Shame they never caught on, I quite liked having the disks.


Anyone remember the scene in the Matrix where Neo saves some sort of software on one - what was that about!?
