When Adobe were preaching about seamless deployment across devices, they weren’t telling porky pies. Presenting CrossTweet for Android:
Part of the motivation behind building CrossTweet was the upcoming release of Adobe AIR for Android. A key goal was to provide seamless deployment across web and mobile by employing interaction techniques ubiquitous to mouse and touchscreen input. Which is why if you’ve seen CrossTweet on the web already, you may have noticed that the prev/next navigation had been inspired by the “drag to reload” functionality of twitter and other apps on the iPhone.
Point your phone’s QR code reader at the lovely pattern below, and give the app a test drive.
For insight and tips on how this was built, see my Tips for building AIR for Android Mobile Apps post.
During my last few days working at Blue Barracuda, I managed to find a little R&D time. The result of which has been an experimental interactive data visualisation piece known as CrossTweet.

My first major project at Blue Barracuda has gone live. Connected To British Film and TV is intended to increase people’s appreciation for the British Film and Television scene, ultimately in the hope that people will realise the error of their ways (and in future watch via legal means). It’s from the same folks who brought us those “You Wouldn’t Steal a Handbag” ads, but now instead of making people feel like criminals, the strategy is to incite national pride.
