Promoting your apps with store badges

This is a quick post about promoting your app store applications, in posters, flyers or online in blog posts, websites and adverts. Now that you have your iOS and Android app – if you don’t then what are you waiting for contact us here – you want to be able to easily direct users to your app and indicate to them that you are on the app store that they use. Often on the underground you see applications advertised in carriages with the app store badges placed from various stores. Or you may see a television advert that displays these badges. On the web you may have come across these and clicked on them to grab an app. You too can display an app badge for both the Apple iTunes store and the Google Play store for Android. You can grab the icons here: Apple iTunes App Store badge Google play store badge These files include vector images so whether they will be printed on a flyer or blown up to be displayed on a billboard on the high street they will look perfect at any time. On our own website we had the following banner displayed: banner Here we used the android badge to link directly to the application This could be done with the above files however Google have a nifty little generator that allows you to input the app details and then generate a piece of html code for you to place on your website. It will ask for the package name, this is a section of the URL of the play store link. Example: Two Magazine on the play store has the following URL https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.aptusi.android.twomagazine&hl=en_GB so in the package name copy and paste com.aptusi.android.twomagazine and then hit generate.

It has been a busy few months that has seen us release updates to the e-reader bringing features to the platform such as stacks, loading graphics, HTML Widgets and much more. With the release of the Android application, users of those devices now have a greatly improved and far more enjoyable experience meaning users are no longer at the mercy of a browser to view their favourite content. With the native Android app Users can now view content offline and also receive notifications of new issues enabling you to retain your readers and ensure they comeback to read the next issue. The web version of the reader which we refer to as the e-reader as seen a dramatic overhaul of its design and usability. The look and feel was updated to modern look. By using feedback and usage statistics we were able to ascertain the areas of the reader that were being used a lot or not being used at all. We also began to bring our branding into the user interface but in a subtle and minimal way. Both the android app and the e-reader were designed with careful consideration for the content that you our clients produce. Let’s dive into how the e-reader redesign was planned, designed and executed. Furthermore, we will explore how the new design improves upon the previous user interface. When we had our meeting the general consensus was that the interface was dated. In addition we felt that it no longer reflected the many features we added and also the brand transformation that digifi.it was going through. Previously known as either kindmags or Aptus, we rebranded ourselves with a modern, open and bold makeover. From the colour we used, the typeface we chose and to the tone of voice we portrayed, a tremendous amount of work went into transforming the company image. Yet the e-reader that was built only a few years ago was left unchanged. In the meeting we set out to address the e-readers current state and bring it inline with our transformation. We agreed that we wanted to have a more modern look. At the time it resembled the look of the early versions of iOS, however it looked outdated and didn’t reflect the under the hood improvements we had made over the years. When I joined the company the first thing I did was to re-brand the company. We had high ambitions, we had a strong and powerful platform that is capable of enabling content to be viewed cross platform on a multitude of devices and we were one of the very first to do so. I went away, researched, sketched and followed the direction user interface design was trending towards. When you look at the big three software ecosystems as well as the wider user interface design industry. This style ushers in the principles of swiss design which in turn inspired the bauhaus movement. The bauhaus movement, swiss design and the current flat UI trend ion my view have a number of principles in common: Simplicity, clarity and focus. The bauhuas movement flowed around the idea of stripping something down to its practical form and doing away with finishings and adornments. Its why we use a sans serif font rather than a serif, though you get increased legibility the serif fonts due to the ‘serifs’, acenders and other details that are not seen or reduced on the sans-serif fonts, we choose to use Open Sans which conveyed a friendly feel. Technically it also

separating an object from its background in a photograph using photoshop

I have been asked how I replaced a player’s rugby ball with a phone, with the tutorial for that here. But I have also been asked how to separate an object from its background which I will guide you through in this tutorial. This is the example that is used in 15 Rugby Magazine. Here you see the player sliding from off the screen right into view in quite a realistic manner. This can be tricky to do and the prerequisites are that you need an image that does not have too complex of a background. Furthermore the object you would like to move should hopefully be easy to isolate from its background or surrounding objects and features. In this image the grass and the background are quite simple – this is ideal because later on we are going to clone parts of it to fill in the area our object once resided in. The first thing we want to do is isolate our player so we can have a separate layer with just our rugby player. To do this we use the magnetic lasso tool. Ensure your frequency is set to 70 and adjust your contrast accordingly. The contrast setting is how photoshop determines the edge of the object you are trying to select. If the object has a similar colour and brightness to its background you will need to adjust your settings. Go around the object with the magnetic lasso tool and take extra care when doing so. Go slowly and steadily. When you have reached the point you started at and the object has a selection line round it. Right click and select “Layer via Copy”. This will take your object onto its own layer. Go ahead and use the move tool to move your object around. Now chances are it is not a clean cut out with parts of the background still attached to your object. What you will need to do now is to use the eraser tool to remove the small sections of background still attached. Zoom in really close to an affected area. Select the eraser tool. Change its size until it is quite small. Select a brush shape that has feathering around it i.e. not a solid circle but one with a soft edge. This will allow you to clean away parts of the new layer without it looking like it was badly cut out in Microsoft paint. Depending on how well you cut out your object you may find that you have to clean up quite a few areas until you are happy with your cut out. When you move this cut out layer you realise that below is a static version of your object still stubbornly part of the original image. Now the next step is to replace it with more of the background! This part requires careful consideration of how realistic your background should look. Your aim is to make this background look as if there was no object, in this case rugby player, in it at all! For this we use the clone tool. In this image the background has a common horizontal
