• 0 How To Find The Hidden Videos In Black History Audio Book 3 App

    App Developer Hugh Smith. Story telling is a tradition that never grows old. The spoken word carries our culture forward from one generation to the next. Before written text, there was the oral tradition. Audio narratives that were voiced by the educated, the soothsayers, the griot, or our elders are how people learned about everything before the dawn of books. This tradition continues today. Maybe that's why our Black History Audio Books 1 & 2 apps are so popular. We did something different for the 3rd volume. For those of you who like to watch as well as listen or read, we've got you covered. Several videos are also included in Black History Audio Book 3 to support the written words and spoken stories. The video below shows you how to find the hidden videos in Black History Audio Book 3!  We are finalizing the iPhone version of the three Android Black History Audio Books. It is finished. The app is going through advanced testing before we release it.

    The process of creating an app can be a lot of fun. A team can collaborate. One developer can do it all. We've had team members help, and we've done some apps solo. Here's a log of the Emoji Game QuikMoji. You can see at the bottom of the log that this was not the original name of the game. The two original name candidates are written at the bottom of the log. As games go, this one took just shy of one month (May 24, 2017 - June 22, 2017). Twenty-nine days from inspiration to completion. My daily log indicates what was done, what needed to be fixed, and what needed to be improved. We never release any apps with known bugs. What does it take to create an app? Knowledge of a programming language or a template building system Dedication to finish the project The mindset to get your project into the hands of users The aptitude to acknowledge that perfection comes with experience Just release the app and improve it, don't procrastinate These are our 5 tips for success!

    September 1, 1990. Our first year in our first office. Above is our first logo! Our current office still has the Lionel Railroad Map of the USA you see in the background. The yearly wall calendar next to the desk survived too. It is nice to use for scheduling blogs, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, and Instagram. We also schedule the social media updates electronically but it is nice to see them all on the wall!  Hugh Smith in the office, 1990.

    During the spring and summer of 2018, The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia hosted the interactive exhibit: Game Masters. The hands-on presentation is a walk through the history of video gaming from arcade favorites all the way to today's web and console games. Those old arcade games from the late 1970's through the '80s greet you as you enter the exhibition. We couldn't resist a quick session with the cherished favorite Asteroids. I'd say one of the big hits of this show was a wall - high wall - wide projection of a spectacular dancing game. You know the kind. Watch the three dancers and follow the steps. Easy. Lots of fun. Young and old relived the thrill of engaging with these great games. From Pac-Man to Minecraft. They were all there. Hugh Smith from Quikthinking Software at Game Masters. A deeper dive into Game Masters reveals some hidden gems. We liked the recorded game developer interviews along with rare artwork from some of the games. I was also fascinated leafing through a hand written developer storyboard which reminded me of some of my own game planning sketches with notes. 30 legendary game designers are profiled in Game Masters. For the historian, app programmer, or casual fan there's a lot to listen to, watch, and read. For the gamer, the goal is to play as many of the 100 games in the exhibition as possible and beat all the boss levels. We got to play as many games as possible but didn't come close to the magic 100. Game Masters at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia ends its run on Monday, September 3, 2018.
