Men's Basketball 2012 Digital Edition

After a tumultuous, successful men's basketball season at KU, the print staff wanted to distribute an end-of-the-year review of the team, from low pre-season expectations to a finish in the NCAA title game. The ad adviser and the sports editor, however, also had an idea to make a tablet version of the special edition. I used a few JavaScript libraries, not the least of which iScroll4, designed a nimble user interface with subdued blue and red school colors and packaged a WordPress site as the foundation to allow print staff to upload stories quickly and easily. Multimedia support for podcasts, videos and galleries were also coded into the system, but unfortunately, the staff ran out of time. We hope to feature extra interactive content in future digital editions.

Currently, Safari and Chrome are the only supported browsers - Firefox compatibility is in the works - if viewed on a personal computer. Almost all Android phones and all iOS 3.0+ devices are supported.
