INNOVATIVE MEDIA Senuri Wasalathanthri (0328296)

I expect to be more familiar with visual applications and how to use them to make creative documents and be up to date with the technological improvements upon this module. My personal interest is to be as creative as possible and come up with creative ways to express modern ideas to captivate mass audiences and to make the best out of what I learn. I see myself as a person enriched with different skills in the future and a good leader willing to take an important role in the company that I'm going to work for and to lead that particular company towards success.

Limitations of using ibuildapp

We used the iBuildApp website to create our mobile app and we came across many difficulties when using iBuildApp. One difficulty was that, iBuildApp did not allow us to add buttons and widgets to our sub pages, apart from the home page. We designed another 'Now Playing page' in hopes of linking it to the My Music page through a widget but after days of trying, we figured out that it wasn't possible.

The Now Playing page we were trying to link to the My Music page

Another limitation of using the iBuildApp is that we aren't allowed to customize a widget according to our own liking. For example, we could not upload any background images to our widgets and change the font of our widgets etc. Also, the widgets are very general and will not suit specific design functions that we liked to create. We also found out that the template could not be edited after submission which caused us much inconvenience.

Furthermore, the we could not add a splash screen that we like because we had to pay to cutomize the splash screen that goes on our app. Also, most of the Powr widgets could not be used without upgrading our account to premium and paying a monthly fee which was very inconvenient.

Moreover, the iBuildApp interface is not user friendly. It took us days of practice to execute our app. And there are no in depth tutorials available on how to use the website.
