Edgar Allan Poe Goes Universal - iPoe Now for iPad and iPhone
May 3, 2012 in Books
[prMac.com] Barcelona, Spain - Play Creatividad launched iPoe for iPad about a month ago but had the iPhone users in mind since the beginning. The update released today features the same stories, illustrations and interaction as the iPad version but adapted to the smaller screen of the iPhone.
While the iPad version was having a great reception, the creative team at Play Creatividad worked hard to make the experience on the iPhone look as good as on the big display. Texts have been scaled to be easily readable and some illustrations are adapted to fit the pages better and all the interactive elements are present. To improve usability and to save screen space, the menu has been redesigned and the navigation buttons are not necessary.
The response of the users has been fantastic: an average of 5 stars rating and prised illustrations, animations and sounds. iPoe has reached number 1 book in several countries such as: Spain, Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, Paraguay, Peru, Costa Rica, Czech Republic and Belize.
But the work doesn't stop here; all user comments and recommendations are taken in account for improvements. Next milestone is upgrading the graphics to the new iPad's Retina Display, to get shivers form every detail.
