Stuart presented at the University of Bath on the 8th February. The Apps Crunch event was all about getting groups of competing students to bring their business and creative skills together, as part of a mobile apps development competition.
Fellow presenters Richard and Adam of iPrinciples, helped to subject the attendees to an intensive download of information concerned with everything from business case, through platform choice to how to set about designing and developing an app. Adam even showed a Windows SDK in action to articulate how easy developing for this platform can be. Once you have his skillset, of course!
Mixing with the students afterwards there were some really good ideas floating around, and it looks like the earlier presentations didn’t put too many people off. The entries will be judged prior to the big Cross Media Lab event at the Innovation Centre next month.

Intohand has worked with Fresh Air Production to deliver the cool iPhone client-server application Record Their Stories. The service is all about capturing the anecdotes of family and friends, giving the option to have these professionally produced and returned – allowing memories to be shared and experienced at will.
With a built-in edit suite and more than a 100 scrollable questions to help keep conversation flowing, family and friends can create very special recordings of their loved ones any time, any where they get together. What’s more, the application is so straightforward, and naturally appeals to little ones’ inquisitive nature – it really is child’s play to use!
The application work done on this project has really shown what the audio and graphical capabilities of the iPhone can do. The inbuilt media handling lets users edit passages of audio as they choose, using a graphical editor based around representations of tape reels. A moving level indicator helps users to cut the audio to suit. Recording stories and having fun are rolled into one!
Record Their Stories has been picked up by much of the press, including the London Daily Telegraph.
It was previewed in December 2011 and is now fully launched.
