I had the opportunity to work on an awesome iPhone and iPad app with Steven Disbrow (president and programmer at EGO Systems, Inc.). The app is Zoom Share and it helps with easy sharing of contacts, photos, and documents between Apple mobile devices (iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad). It can’t get any easier than simply sliding a photo or v-card icon onto an image representing the person you’re sharing with, or the email icon. Here are some images of what that looks like:
The app is free for photo and contact sharing, and receiving documents. It has the option of an in-app purchase if you’d like to be able to send documents.
Steve and I agreed that the best layout for the app is to have a row with IDs for connected devices and each type of media shared – photos, contacts, and documents. By placing all items on rolling shelves, it makes it effortless to slide items from one “shelf” to the other … it’s fun … almost like dealing cards to players – one for you, and another one for you …
Connecting to the other devices is done via WiFi or BlueTooth, and if the person you’re wanting to share with is not around you – emailing from Zoom Share is always an option.
For those of you eager to see more than just photographs of the app, you can download it for free here, and we’ll have a video soon. Stay tuned!
I work for a web development company, and we have all sorts of clients. I would like to talk about two companies we work with – Snapfōn and VisiKey. With so much technology choices on the market, its nice to know that some, like Snapfōn and VisiKey, offer accommodations for senior citizens and those with vision disabilities. What’s even better – you don’t have to be a senior or have a disability to be able to benefit from these products. The easy to use Snapfōn cellphones and VisiKey keyboards, offer large – easy to see and use keys, which help reduce eye strain for any cellphone or computer user.
I’ve been using a Snapfōn for several months now. Having access to a Macbook, iPod Touch, and an iPad, I don’t feel the need for a cellphone that provides me with internet access or apps. With the Snapfōn, I can use text messages, and enjoy extra features like a built in flashlight, FM radio, and – my favorite – an SOS button. The SOS button is programmable to call and text 4 numbers of my choice in case of an emergency. This makes me feel much safer about walking to my car at night, after spending long hours at school. Also, the larger keys make texting easier and faster.
Earlier this summer I redesigned the business cards for EGO Systems. My goal was to design a simple, uncluttered, memorable card. Here is the result:
I would like to note that this customizable logo was created by Strat Parrott, and the cards were printed by Thick Cards. Thick Cards provided me with different options for the thickness and dimensions of the business cards. Working with them was a pleasure.
