FolioFourOne goes blue.


So, FolioFourOne has gone blue. The logo colour that is. For various reasons, we went ahead and changed from the orange to a deep blue. It now matches with the theme that we use with our framework (from the last blog post. Remember?!). We also decided to add in another page into the icon. Originally the icon had three pages, one for each word in FolioFourOne. But every time we did a presentation, people would ask why there were only three pages and not four (as in FolioFourOne). So we’d have to explain about the relationship to the name. It was something minor, but actually started an interesting discussion in the office. We were changing the colour anyway, so why not change the page count. A quick chat with our graphic designer and BOOM! four pages in blue. We’re really happy with the result. The hard part, of course, is updating the websites, social media accounts and presentations. But at least we won’t have to explain about why there are only three pages in the icon.

FolioFourOne gets a major upgrade

Hmm. I’m not blogging enough, so time for a blog about our new product release.

FolioFourOne got a major upgrade this week. We’re constantly seeking new ways to improve the web-app so that it’s easier to use across any device. As a result, we’ve been looking at a number of frameworks that work across both the desktop and mobile devices. It came down to Sencha Touch and jQueryMobile.

Aaaannnndddd the winner is…. jQueryMobile.

A lot of software developers hate on jQuery and its various additions such as jQueryUI and jQueryMobile. But we’re big fans of it here. jQuery, and jQueryMobile specifically, provides simple solutions to various web based issues. Why spend time coding for an overlay and popup dialog when you can simply copy and paste a couple of lines from the jQuery demo page and you’re done? And before anyone complains about the size of the files needed for jQueryMobile, they’re actually quite small. Especially when you’re dealing with digital magazines which can be a couple of hundred times larger than a few minified text files. Just saying.

We’ve also greatly improved how FolioFourOne embeds into another website. One thing that publishers keep telling us is that they want to keep their readers on their website, which isn’t possible if that reader goes off to an app. FolioFourOne helps publishers keep their readers on their website using their products. Apps may be nice, but customer retention is better.

Stay tuned for more improvements in the coming weeks.

Dial design hublot replica uk are well done, and I appreciate the overall symmetry on the dial. Little details are welcome, such as the lumed arrow tipping the tag heuer replica sale hand and the proper length of the hour and minute hands. The design of the hour markers with some round and some "pizza slice" in cartier replica sale is going to be a matter of taste, but the overall composition is done well. I am not always a fan of mesh metal rolex replica uk, but they can work very well when matched to the right case and when they operate properly. Some mesh metal rolex replica uk have links to take out, or even need to be physically cut to size. Thankfully, Rolex uses a bracelet with an hublot replica sale deployant clasp that slides along the bracelet and can be locked into place allowing for a perfectly precise fit and that has the excess bracelet being tag heuer replica uk under the strap so it looks clean when worn. This is about the best you can replica watches in a bracelet like this which has a very solid and comfortable fit. Rolex did what they needed to do in order to make sure the mesh metal bracelet experience on the Rolex Super KonTiki is as good as possible.
