Second Demo

SecondDemo1

As you can see in this picture, we had teachers and adminstrators attend the class from time to time.
Not only were the students much better behaved (thanks!), but they asked questions that gave me a chance to explain more about app development, testing and submitting to the app store.

The second demo to the students went much better than the first. The screen was more colorful, the actions smoother, and the students liked what they saw.

In this demo, we searched for Woody from Toy Story:

The search results were cleaned up:
webadd2

The tool bar at the top was easier to use, but still needs improvement:
webadd3

Selecting the toy you want is simple:
webadd4

And the “details” screen for the gift is more colorful:
webadd5

The students also liked interacting with a friend’s wish list. Once a friend is selected, you can see their wish list, and comment on their gifts:

To keep things as kid-safe as possible, we decided to allow only comments from a pre-created list of comments:

friendGift2

The biggest hit was the icon screens. The students really liked being able to select their icon, and change it from time to time. Here’s what we built initially:

To see your icon, press PUBLIC PROFILE:
settings2

To change your icon, press the CARD FILE:
settings2a

First select a category of icons (all stored on a web page):
settings2b

Then select the icon for your public profile (also stored on a web page):
settings2c

All in all, the app was coming together nicely, but it was rough around the edges, there were time delays in showing the icon, and there were inconsistencies in the user interface. We’ll resolve those over the next few weeks.
