My first DPS app went live last night.
Now look into my eyes; you will like it. Don't resist.
Why? Well, it's free. And free is good, we all like free. It has fun drawings and interactivity. It makes use of many DPS components including an image sequence that looks like an animation, audio, HTML5 canvas tag, and an Edge Preview animation.
What's even better is that Adobe has asked me to make the components available in the DPS cookbook. You can have it all and use it in your own DPS apps. So while I get all the files ready for that, download the app from iTunes - so far only iPad - but I will publish for Kindle Fire and Android presently.
Leave any comments or questions with this thread so we can all benefit.
It is a Spanish-Language alphabet learning application called Todas la letras.
I have built a site which has some of the HTML code and a description of how I built it
So far, 10 downloads. 2 from Mexico, 1 each from Argentina and Columbia. Gracias, Suramerica!
And thanks to forum users who helped me along, espcially the Bobs.
Looks great and I love the little image sequence and the ability to write your own version of the letter. What's more, I just learned how to say skeleton in Spanish!
Am I the first Australian download?
I haven't figured out the refresh rate of the iTunesconnect analytics - so far, just the 14 downloads mentioned above. So I would safely bet that you are the first downloader from Down Under (too clever?). In fact, here at Dan McSweeney Digital Publishing Corporate Headquarters we'd like to name you our Australian ambassador. I'm going to have accounting send you a Speedo, an orange cap, and a Glock. The intent of this app was to get Australia speaking Spanish, bwah hahah, it's working.
Glad you liked the image overlay "animation." Credit for that idea is due Colin Fleming. And if you are handy at all in After Effects, it's not difficult to export an animation to a jpeg image sequence - AE even sequentially names the files for you. All of this will be detailed when I post the project files. Meanwhile anybody can ask me questions. (Like I'm some kind of mad expert in this, right?)
Writing a sparkling review of the app on iTunes is, by the way, part of your duties as ambassador.
