The target platform of TouchTraveller application is Tablet, its Category is Education.
TouchTraveller is a Windows 8 Desktop application which can be used by anyone who wants to know more about the world around him/her. No special knowledge is required to use the application. With the help of TouchTraveller application you may browse around different countries, cities - getting almost unlimited amount of information!
Look & Feel
When user launches the application, the world map is displayed. Single touch on a country - and the world map disappears and we see the detailed map of this country on one side of the application along with information about this country on another side of the application.
Menu will be visible during application work with following options:
- return to world map
- switch to country mode
- switch to cities mode
When we are in cities mode and user touches world map, information is displayed about closest city.
So as you can see, the extensive usage of touch/multitouch features of Lenovo tablet will be done in TouchTraveller application.
This is only initial description of idea. I am going to develop and test the application on Lenovo ThinkPad
Tablet 2 if this idea will be selected for Round 2 of the Contest. C# language and Visual Studio 2012 will be used for implementation.
