Leica Biosystems Histology Consumables iPad App
In 2012 I was contracted by Hive Creative to build an app which translated a large hefty printed consumables catalogue into a small compact iPad app for Leica Biosystems.

I developed a custom JavaScript framework and packaged the app within Cordova/PhoneGap. The framework was architected with declarative attributes (i.e. all behaviours can be declared within the HTML) meaning that another front-end developer could create more content without having to touch the JavaScript code.

In addition to the iPad app itself, I worked alongside a back-end programmer and we devised and implemented technology to allow the app to synchronise and update user data. Because the app was to be used by sales representatives in the field, it had to operate in both online and offline environments.

Extra tools were worked into the app such as cost calculators (of which I had to reverse engineer Excel spreadsheets to then rebuild in JavaScript) and rich media playback (slideshows, video, 3D rotations).

During this project the original interface designer left so I took over extra UI & UX design responsibilities.
