So you want a mobile app? You’ve got a winning idea and you want to start making it into reality?

Going from the excitment of the initial idea, pull that through to designing, building and then marketing the app can seem quite daunting. There are lots of decisions to be made, like what functionalities the app should have, what should the visual design of the app be, what platform it should run on, and then finally, how to get people to notice your app once you get it out there.

Recently, Kate gave a talk at the AWARE event addressing some of these questions. The event was ran by our research partners for the FindMe app at Edinburgh University. And it aimed to stimulate the conversation about various approaches to designing for children.

The talk is only 15mins long, and it contains a whistle stop tour of all the stages of creating an app, and also the tools that you could use to help you get there.

We’re excited to announce that Interface3 is part of the Sync: Geeks in Residence programme for 2013! Our host is the wonderful National Theatre of Scotland where we’ll be indulging in one of our favourite topics – narrative driven experiences.

The aim of the residency is that over the next 6 months, we will get a chance to explore, spot opportunities and create experiments around interactive storytelling and enhancing the theatre experience. Kate’s first meeting with NTS will be on Monday. She’ll be blogging about the work over here and over at Sync.

Of course, this project isn’t the first time we’ve worked with the theatre sector – our previous projects with Theatre Sandbox, as well as Stobhill, plus Kate’s winning entry for Will’s Hack in December has meant that our love affair with interactive storytelling continues!
