Project Remote: Report 8


Last week
I designed and implemented a proposal of how the GUI could look. The app now also stores the authorization token in the keychain of the device, which saves the user from typing in his username and password every time the app starts. The various buttons and sliders also synchronize (animated) their state when the app receives an updated configuration from the server.

Challenges
Designing a GUI that feels like home in iOS without being a complete copy of the existing iPod app.

This Week
This week I will continue working mostly on the GUI. I will also implement the functionality of some existing interface elements, namely the skip-buttons (restart song, skip to next).
