Project Description

Project – Storythings – American Interior – iOS App Testing & Android App Testing

In March 2014, I worked on the American Interior app project with Storythings, testing both the iOS App and the Android App. The American Interior app is part of a multi-platform ‘investigative tour’ by The Super Furry Animals’ Gruff Rhys, which includes an album, a book, a film, a tour, and the app. The app itself is based on one of the key songs of the album – 100 Unread Messages – and the app tells the story through 100 messages, over interactive maps, using video, audio and text excerpts from the book.

During the project, I worked with both iOS and Android development teams, to build a Test Plan, perform testing and provide feedback on the app. A mix of TestFlight and Dropbox was used for app distribution. Testing was performed on a mix of devices, including iPhones, iPads and Android tablet.

Client Testimonial from Storythings

We’ve worked with Pat Walsh on a number of very different projects, from interactive video projects to mobile apps. His work is very thorough and has quickly become an essential and important phase of all the production work we do at Storythings. He’s thorough, diligent, and a pleasure to work with.
