Autumn Gem for the iPad Wins The Future of Publishing Award at iPadDevCamp!


Autumn Gem for the iPad wins the Future of Publishing Award at the inaugural iPadDevCamp!

Autumn Gem for the iPad introduces the incredible story of Modern China’s first feminist, Qiu Jin. Drawing on the innovative and interactive features of the iPad, users can learn about Qiu Jin’s efforts in the Women’s Movement in China and her role in overthrowing the Qing government.

Many thanks to Ivan Torres and Dominic Tham from XBureau in Orange County for their work in developing the application. In true BarCamp tradition, we met randomly on Friday night, hit it off, and developed a complete working and award-winning prototype in two days! With the award — which was sponsored by Promote-A-Book — comes a free iPad, which we’ll be giving to them. We couldn’t have done it without them! Richly deserved, guys!

Here’s a screenshot of the upcoming application, which we will be getting onto iTunes App Store soon!
