[prMac.com] Science Park, Hong Kong - Joy Aether is please to announce that "Area Aid Design Project - JDP" iPad App is now launched on the App Store. This app is a joint project of Joy Aether Limited with Japan Institute of Design Promotion, to support and promote manufacturing, design and creative enterprises in Tohoku and Ibaraki prefecture.
The Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011, has brought great destruction to Northeastern Japan. One year later, the rebuilding of homes, the reconstruction of the cities and the economy are still under way.
Japan Institute of Design Promotion (JDP), a public interest foundation, first established the "Design Centre for Reconstruction Assistance" on 11th June 2011. This aims to administer design activities that will help the reconstruction of areas affected by the disaster.
In addition, to further assist the revival, the "Area Aid Design Project - JDP" iPad App is launched to introduce 100 design-related enterprises in Aomori, Akita, Iwate, Yamagata, Miyagi, Fukushima and Ibaraki. They are the firms that utilize the traditional methods and techniques handed down from ancient times. Furthermore, there are many sites developing and producing highly specialized products that require technical capabilities. The introduction of the "Area Aid Design Project - JDP" iPad App is to further enhance public awareness to the unique culture and designs in these rebuilding regions.
"The iPad is a popular device for reading, and therefore we are excited to enable people to browse through the collection of AADP enterprises, in a catalog iPad app. Joy Aether is proud to be a part of the AADP project. Using our Interactive Content Publishing Platform, we were able to produce a catalog that is more interactive, in a relatively short time", says Ricky Lui, VP of Operations of Joy Aether.
With the Interactive Content Publishing Platform that was developed by Joy Aether, the "Area Aid Design Project - JDP" iPad App presents the enterprises' information in an innovative and interactive way. Besides the brief descriptions of each enterprise in Japanese and English, users will be able to:
* Find their locations on the map
* Visit their web page
* Send the enquiry emails directly
As part of its corporate social responsibility initiatives, Joy Aether fully supports the aim of "Area Aid Design Project" using information technology, and hope the launch of the iPad app would grasp the awareness of the general public and to wish the general public would pay attention to and advocate the industries in the rebuilding regions. Visit the App Store and download "Area Aid Design Project - JDP" to support Japan.
