Re: [nbos] [AS] iOS viewer app?Tuck Sun Jan 8th, 2012
I'm a long-time lurker on this list. However this thread makes me want to
reply. I make iOS and Android apps for a living, and I specialize in
Augmented Reality apps. Mostly cute commercial stuff, but I've long wished
for something I can use to help me with my SF games.
I'm a big AS fan, though I've not used it in a couple of years.
But I'd like to open the floor to suggestions as to what people would like
to see in an AS helper app. I'm not suggesting I would make it as such. I
certainly don't want to interfere with nbos in any way. If they have
something in the pipe, fantastic. However I would be honored to help
crowd-design or at least make up a wish-list.
For starters, let me throw out that I'd like the mobile app to be able to
be a remote control for the AS application running on the PC or mobile.
This would allow for easy control of data flow to other players, and if we
all had our phones or tablets at a game... then we all just log onto a
server or service and we're all seeing the data the GM wants us to see.
Plus... if there was an AR function in there... it would allow the game
table to be treated as a kind of fake holographic projector. I do work
like this all the time. It's not hard. The point here is that all the
players would be able to see the star systems hovering over the playing
Anyway, that's my two cents. I hope I'm not stepping on anyone's toes here.
