Hello, I wil be developing an IOS/Android magazine app for iPad, Galaxy and probably playbook. Im not sure if to start coding everything in HTML5 create a package for each "issue" and then come up with the interface wich will allow the user to download an issue, delete this issue and view the issue.
The easy part is to develop for HTML5 since every issue is heavy on videos and image galleries. But the hard part is to come up with an interface for downloading-deleting-viewing.
Any suggestions? A module could work? Maybe something else? Has anyone been involved with a project such as this one?
Well, if anyone can help I will be very gratefull.
Thanks in advance for any help
I'm making a magazine but this one is only for iOS and I'm using a module from the market to manage the downloads (https://marketplace.appcelerator.com/apps/2342?1434110693 and its available for android too).
You can upload to your server each issue zipped and unzip in the device (https://marketplace.appcelerator.com/apps/1355?1568170113 or https://marketplace.appcelerator.com/apps/774?835592680)
I fetch a JSON file from my server to see if I have the magazine updated and get the new issues, if the user click on one of them start to downloading.
Delete files its an easy task http://docs.appcelerator.com/titanium/2.1/index.html#!/api/Titanium.Filesystem.File-method-deleteFile
Let me know if I can help you with more information.
