Photo Ticker

Digital photo frame and news feed aggregation app for iPad.

Overview

We wanted to show off our photos in a form of a digital frame, with some cool transitions, but at the same time keep track of current time and weather, and stay on top of the latest news and our Twitter updates.

Challenge

Design and develop an application that combines features of digital photo frame, while displaying current time and weather conditions, and has the ability to show latest news from various categories.

Solution

PhotoTicker is born!

pt-splash

An app with simple and intuitive UI, which transforms from digital photo frame into news feed aggregator with only a gesture away.

While in digital photo frame view, there is minimal screen information displayed (only current date/time and weather are shown), keeping the focus on photos.

Switching to news ticker view, app displays a grid composed out of latest news pulled from various websites.
News feed can be tailored to show stories only from topics of interest, such as fashion, entertainment, sport, technology and much more.
