Touch Nonsense.

Do hat jo een bei der ARD wierklech eng super Iddi fir die Schiermer an hieren Studioen (WM, Meteo, …) touch-fäheg ze maachen!!

Gesäit genial aus, wann de Beckmann oder e Wiederfräsch op sou engem Riesenschierm dräggen-an-droppen. An et mécht souvill Sënn. Chapeau.

Wéini integréieren se dat an d’Tagesschau?

Book apps.

Sou lues schéngen gudd e-books (fir den iPad) op de Marché ze kommen, wou och eng (limitéiert) Interaktivitéit a Multimedialitéit Sënn mécht:

The most interesting of the book apps I found in Apple’s (AAPL) online App Store was “Alice for the iPad,” a 52-page version of “Alice in Wonderland” by a small company called Atomic Antelope that costs $9.99. (A shorter “lite” version of the book is free.) The color illustrations for “Alice for the iPad” are based on the elegant wood engravings Sir John Tenniel did for the original 19th century “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,” which, like the text of the book, are now in the public domain.

The first sign there’s something different about “Alice for the iPad” comes when you flip to its third page, where the White Rabbit’s old-fashioned pocket watch, dangling by its chain from text, starts swinging whichever way the reader is holding the iPad. Other animated objects appear on later pages—a jar of marmalade, and collection of mushrooms—and move when you tilt the iPad or touch an object and drag it across the screen.

The animations can be predictable. On a page where Alice eats a cake that shrinks her body, a pile of cupcakes falls to the bottom of the screen, accumulating in an undamaged little pile, an action repeated on many pages with other objects. How much cooler would it be for the cupcakes’ frosting to get messy when they drop? I wanted to be able smear them all over the text on the page.

Still, there are wonderful moments in “Alice for iPad.” My favorite is when Alice is assaulted by a pack of flying playing cards. Alice’s arms and body bobble as a blizzard of cards slams into her. My daughter and I couldn’t resist trying to make the cards pile up on her by angling the iPad just so.

There’s something fitting about the sensation of gravity that the animations bring to a story with so much body-shrinking and mind-blowing going on it. It will be exciting to see what the Atomic Antelope crew does with their next project: an iPad version of “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.”
