Betts Mag App Launch in the Apple App Store

UPDATE: I'll be submitting an updated 1.1 version this afternoon which really polishes the app so be sure to lookout for that. The iPhone companion app uses String™ Augmented Reality which was really easy to work with, and I'm hoping that I'll be able to develop a few more apps using it. In the Betts Spring 2011 catalog which is currently instores you'll see the Betts Mag App iPhone app is featured. Here you can scan the icons inside the printed mag and unlock extra app features.


Also there are about 8 rich media shoe products where you can see 3 Ways to Wear and touch to spin 360 view spin of the products.




The iPad app allows you to browse the Spring Summer Catalog.


Twitter Virtual yelling

I call twitter virtual yelling it's the easiest way to explain it to anyone who doesn't know what it is. A few months ago I created a twitter account to see what all the fuss is about I know I'm a little late to the game but better late than never right? Yellow pages everyone uses them right?

I'm just really not if they're using them for their intended purpose, I'd love to see the percentage of people using them as door stoppers but hey kudos to them for staying digital and keeping the finger on the pulse. Maybe they aren't as out of touch as I thought!

It was written some time ago for a previous website called eFood Order. and since then I have used it several times. I think its more relevant if I post it here though.
