iPad -An Introduction

The new Apple iPad is a revolutionary device for browsing the web, reading and sending email, enjoying photos, watching videos, listening to music, playing games, reading e-books and much more. iPad’s responsive high-resolution Multi-Touch™ display lets users physically interact with applications and content. iPad is just 0.5 inches thick and weighs just 1.5 pounds— thinner and lighter than any laptop or netbook. iPad includes 12 new innovative apps designed especially for the iPad, and will run almost all of the over 140,000 apps in the App Store. iPad will be available in late March starting at a price of $499.

“iPad is our most advanced technology in a magical and revolutionary device at an unbelievable price,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “iPad creates and defines an entirely new category of devices that will connect users with their apps and content in a much more intimate, intuitive and fun way than ever before.”

iPad features 12 next-generation Multi-Touch applications. Every app works in both portrait and landscape, automatically animating between views as the user rotates iPad in any direction. The precise Multi-Touch interface makes surfing the web on iPad an entirely new experience, dramatically more interactive and intimate than on a computer.

Reading and sending email is fun and easy on iPad’s large screen and almost full-size “soft” keyboard. Import photos from a Mac®, PC or digital camera, see them organized as albums, and enjoy and share them using iPad’s elegant slideshows. Watch movies, TV shows and YouTube, all in HD or flip through pages of an e-book you downloaded from Apple’s new iBookstore while listening to your music collection.

iPad’s 9.7-inch, LED-backlit display features IPS technology to deliver crisp, clear images and consistent color with an ultra-wide 178 degree viewing angle. The highly precise, capacitive Multi-Touch display is amazingly accurate and responsive whether scrolling web pages or playing games. The intelligent soft keyboard pioneered on iPhone takes advantage of iPad’s larger display to offer an almost full-size soft keyboard. iPad also connects to the new iPad Keyboard Dock with a full-size traditional keyboard.

Apple released a new Software Development Kit (SDK) for iPad, so developers can create amazing new applications designed to take advantage of iPad’s capabilities. The SDK includes a simulator that lets developers test and debug their iPad apps on a Mac, and also lets developers create Universal Applications that run on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.

Let’s move for something Bigger 🙂

About Muzammil

Over the past 6 years, I have designed, developed and managed over 150 iPhone/iPad applications for many large-scale clients, some include Rolex, Ford, Makemark LLC, Source Digital Production, IT City (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia), R.Ø.S.A. Creation etc. These applications ranged from simple navigation bar application to high end user interface design for image processing, simple games with Core Graphics and OpenGL. Before started Triffort Technologies i was working in Ampere Software Pvt Ltd as a senior iOS Developer. I was the first employe of Ampere who started iPhone/iPad development in the company. In ampere i worked on some complex apps like Boxboss, Austin Post, User Tracking etc. Throughout my career, I have used Core Graphics, OpenGL, SQLite, Core Data, JSON, XML etc. I am very proficient in many design programs including Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, iMove. Although I am very knowledgeable in all Adobe Products. Most the time i am designing my apps without taking help from any graphics designer. I love to make app from my designs. It feels great when you are creating app from scratch and no body else is involve in your ideas. You are free to do anything. As the Senior Developer and Team lead at Triffort Technologies, I managed a team of Technical Interactive Developers and Designers. As their manager I am responsible for scheduling, resource management, task reviews, process development and enhancements, employee reviews and new employee hiring. I believe good employee morale and communication are key factors to successful, creative work, therefore, positive feedback was part of my daily routine. But most of the time you can find me on my desk writing codes for some app. I love programming. This is my passion. I’m a team player. I am a motivated individual who enjoys taking on new challenges and learning new technologies. I am well organized and a proficient multi-tasker. I have strong problem solving skills such as the ability to use technology in creative ways to meet unique project requirements. I love to be challenged and I always have a positive outlook no matter how tight the deadline is.
