My aim is to design my interactive application to help tell the story of Amy Johnson’s life together with the exhibition itself at Sewerby Hall and Gardens. To do this I researched other tablet and iPad applications which tell stories to see how they use technology and design to do this.
iPaddington is an excellent example of story telling through tablet technology with added interaction. The app lets users record themselves reading and take photographs to include in the stories.
An app developed by The British Museum for tablets and smartphones to support their exhibition Life and death in Pompeii and Herculaneum. The app tells a story using interactive maps of the region and a timeline of the eruption; users can explore the objects and themes of the exhibition and immerse themselves in the life and death of the two cities on their tablet or smartphone.
Both apps use tablet technology and immerse users/visitors in their very different stories using video, audio and other interactive means.
