Custom Development, Mobile Apps
University of Utah Natural History Museum was creating a Navajo Indian exhibit and wanted to allow their visitors to have interaction with the site. They decided on an app that would allow for their visitors to create virtual Navajo Baskets.
The challenge was that the app had to work on multiple devices, iPads, and a giant touch screen device of 75 inches with the following functionality:
Multiple icons to be dragged and dropped on the canvas
rotate, enlarge/shrink, and move the icons
Send the design via email, text message and social media
Creating a different version for multiple devices was not cost-effective. We would have needed to build the app in iOS for the iPads and then in HTML for the touchscreen.
To overcome the issue of multi builds we decided to do the app in HTML5 with a Python backend that would be used for sending the designs to the different media sources.
