Perhaps some of you have dreams (or nightmares) about the App Store and are wondering just what it takes to get an iPhone app out there. Well, I did just that and while the memories of it are fresh I wrote a little post mortem article about it:
Since I wanted to put the app in my portfolio, I really tried to think hard about the interaction. I hope I managed to make it look interesting and informative, while inviting some exploration at the same time. If you try it, note how I animate the hues of time zones to represent different locations in the world and the values to represent different times of the day.
Also, even though I did not set out to do it, in hindsight I employed a classical product design trick, which is to turn something on its head; most time zone converters have vertical lists, I have horizontal and most time zone converters list cities first, while I list the time zone name first.
The app is at this link and if you want to know anything, just ask!
