Designing an ipad application

wireframe of result and map interaction

Not a tutorial but more of an experiment. A bunch of us got together at work in our ‘spare’ time to create a useful Ipad application. Without giving too much away it is going to be a travel based app for a fictional respected online Fashion brand. Travel apps are a dime a dozen so what is our killer app? Content of course, plus a little attitude.

As a time conscious travel diva or Creative Director, I like to stay at boutique hotels, visit the trendiest bars/restaurants and spend at the most beautiful stores. How will I know where to go? I want an application that knows what I like, what I want to do and how I am feeling in order to recommend the best places to go.

Are we going to be successful? Wait for the next update…

In the meantime I love the stuff Bonnier are doing. Had a similar philosophy for a web application but is so much more appropriate for hand helds like the ipad. Watch it:
