A companion application for
Image Archive+, IA+ Mobile was a PWA (Progressive Web App) that allowed customers to log in and view their data on a mobile device. It relied on the same back-end as Image Archive+, and was a quick win without a lot of extra work. With nothing to install, it afforded the convenience of a native mobile app while staying lightweight and being easy to build and maintain. Screenshots
The user could select "Add to homescreen" from their mobile browser menu, and it would add a shortcut that made it virtually indistinguishable from a native mobile application.
If the app was launched from the homescreen, no browser chrome was displayed, and user got a fullscreen experience.
The primary interface was for viewing and navigating through the project's archive of images.
Users could swipe right and left to easily browse recent images.
Using the calendar selector, users could choose a date of archived images that they wanted to view.
Once a date was selected, the time selector would appear, and the user would immediately jump to the image from that date and time.
Other tools available allowed the user to download the image they were currently viewing (watermarked with a timestamp for convenience) or email the image.
Using the email tool made it easy for the user to quickly share something with colleagues.
The app supported landscape mode, for a better viewing experience of the HD images.
All tools were still accessible in landscape mode, along with swipe navigation for quick browsing.
In both portrait and landscape modes, the user could pinch to zoom in on something and pan around. The app would request higher resolution versions of the images only as zoom increased, to save mobile data.
The settings screen allowed users to see their current info (in case they managed multiple projects), log out, or quickly contact support.
