Lately I’ve been doing some research into different programs to work with for not only Crosslab, but also Design Research. I’ll put my thoughts and ideas in the comments with the programs, but if you have any questions about specific matters, then please approach me in class .
Adobe Edge Reflow (+Edge Inspect)
This program is a basic program to help you set up a responsive web-page so that for example the layout of the whole page changes as soon as the size of the screen gets smaller than let’s say 600px wide. It is very basic and easy to use, you don’t need to know coding to be able to use this program, and on top of this, when you save the project you’re working on, it also saves it as an html and css file so you can add or modify stuff in Dreamweaver of Coda 2 for if you do know something about code. Edge Inspect is a little app you can download so that if you see the changes you make on your computerscreen, live on your iPhone or tablet!
This program is specialized for e-books and epub files, to make your own e-books or decode them. Lot’s of possibilities that you’re all familiar with since we had that workshop last Friday. This is just a reminder.
