Advice wanted on how to lay out text and images upon a page..

Recommended Posts



I'm working on an iPad app that will use a SplitViewController with a Master and Details views on the left and right. The app is purely educational for a certain professional niche and I was wondering how would be the best way to lay out the text and images on a page? I was thinking of either using an uiwebview and html, or photoshop each page into a png with the text already laid out along each image. That way all I would have to do is load each imageview into a scrollview and I'll be done. Not sure how heavy the app will get though that way but at least I'll have the most control over the format. For that matter it would be cool if I could embed a video in there as well but still learning on how to accomplish that. Shouldnt be too hard..

Well for starters you have to ask yourself will you be pulling images or vids from the Internet in your app? Also the layout will be highly dependent on how you want your content to flow but generally if it's images heavy, I'd suggest using Table Views as they work wonders when displaying multiple images across a page for beginners. Table views start off simple but can you can get a lot more in depth with it from a creative and programmatic standpoint as well. Take the Pulse app for example (I'm assuming you know what it is), they creators came from Stanford Uni and they started out with simple table views and took a more design oriented approach at it and got a much better end result.


Remember start with the basics which is functionality then on to the design aspect. Tackle them one at a time and you should have a sweet end result.


And you're welcome. 8)

    • WOL packet is reaching the machine from LAN and from WAN (set with port forwarding), tested with "nc -l -u 9".
    • For me the forum seems reasonably OK, except whenever I see the word 'LOADING' - like when clicking another page of a thread - when it just stops completely and never returns.   I use an adblocker, so adverts aren't slowing me down.  Browsing the forum indexes is not too bad, as is clicking to view any thread.  Ditto clicking a link in an email notification to go to a particular post in a thread.  Sometimes it takes maybe five seconds to load a page, which is a bit too long.  But it's not terrible.   But then whenever I click on any other thread page, which tries to do the in-page content load (without a full page refresh), I see LOADING and then nothing further happens, even after minutes.   It's definitely not related to which content is loaded, but rather how it is loaded.  For example if I go to the index for this forum, then click directly to page 11 of this thread, it loads in 1-5 seconds.  But if I click the link to page 11 within the thread, it never comes back.  I just see this, forever:     This stuck issue seems to me likely something broken (code or configuration?) rather than a general slowdown.  But maybe there's also a general slowdown, especially for those who are seeing adverts.
    • This is as far as I can get with the AMD kexts and the device ID added. They load but the frame buffer isn't loaded. I've tried loading all 7 frame buffers included in the X1000 kext with no luck. From the tests Gigamaxx did there seems to be more luck spoofing as Intel graphics there. More support may come from integrated Vega though, hard to tell.    
    • as documented here it is a sample rate standard and i have also tested it and i can confirm that it works with my audigy rx at least, i have to test it with other cards   https://github.com/audiojs/sample-rate
    • Yes, if i use the EFI folder that I uploaded to the google drive then i do have Intel working properly with QE/CI.
