Project Description

We own a couple of informational websites for small towns and we need a very simple iPad APP that will basically show the content of the website (news and articles) in a way that is similar to flipboard. The websites were done in Joomla (RSS installed) and all we need is for the content to show in an app magazine-type look.

Therefore, the design will be similar or identical to FLIPBOARD. Other the specs include:

1) First page when the app is opened, it will be identical to the second page of flipboard, with 8 squares that will show the latest picture of the latest news in a specific category from the website.

2) When the picture is clicked, the app will take the user to read the latest article, but it will be laid out just like Flipboard, meaning, the content will look like a magazine. If the user keeps flipping the pages, it will continue to take them to older articles, but there will be a back arrow to go back to the home page at any time.

3) One of the squares/categories will point to a business directory within the website. Thus, that particular section might need special care in order to show the listings differently than the articles.

4) Unlike flipboard, where users can select any website to get content from, this app will only let users choose between our own company's websites, which are all identical, done in Joomla, with the same categories, and everything. They are a copy of each other, so there should not be any issues. Therefore, the user could pick which one of our websites she wants to read the content from. This could be done the first time they open the app, and then it will never show again, unless, the user chooses to change sites.
