Best Place To Work iPhone App

Baldscone was recently asked to develop this iPhone application for a client. The application allows users to browse, download and view PDF files. It is a free app and uses several custom coded views – namely the main menu slider view. New PDFs can be updated or added at anytime by the client while the user can navigate each PDF using pinch gestures to zoom, double tap to resize and swipes to flip pages etc.

William Hill Careers Papervision

Baldscone was involved in coding the 3D Flash component of this website. Making extensive use of Papervision 3D and XML to create a custom coded navigate-able panorama, it allows the user to navigate the 3D betting room. Content is all provided dynamically along with jobs ticker. Video, images and text are used in textures and are updated via XML. Hotspots are created using an authoring tool for generating 3D areas and coordinates.

AFL 2011 Flash Interactive

Baldscone recently completed developing this commercial kids CD-ROM for the Australian Football League. The disk comprises of puzzles, 3D games, skills videos and activities for kids ranging from 5-12 years old. In conjunction with a back-end database it allows the users to compete against each other in AFL teams and individually whilst also tracking statistics of usage and screens visited etc.

The disk makes use of a lot of Papervision 3D interactions which presented a challenge to optimise to work on a vast array of computers. All games, puzzles and disk programming was done by Baldscone in AS3 – using Papervision, Greensock and an MVC pattern to hold it all in place.

For a sneak peak click on the header image to see some of the screens. Demos coming soon when it is released.

Partnerships in Care

I recently worked on a search tool for this website to allow users to find the correct PiC hospital or facility for them. It makes use of a Model View Controller design pattern so I could output different Flash files with the same functionality but with different “views” . They were destined for different pages – with differing layout and dimensions. The locations are based in XML and the user can filter and sort locations by various different categories. It also makes use of the Google Maps API to do geolocation lookups and display location Maps within Flash.

I was also asked to design and develop the homepage Flash component for this site a day before it went live – so I thought of using a bit of Papervision.
