Chicago Tribune for iPhone, Android

While giving our readers what they expect with access to the best reporting on local breaking news, business, sports and weather, the Chicago Tribune app for iPhone and Android features a much deeper dive into the content than many of its brethren in the news app space. Up to 20 different beats and blogs feed into each section, providing access to hundred of articles at a time but all within a single tab of a button. Easy to navigate and always available—even without an internet connection. A custom built photo gallery viewer allows readers to peek into the coverage by giving an enhanced level of clarity of what is available in each section of photos. Finally, when readers find something they want to keep—its theirs, forever. Photos, blog posts, stories, etc.

In short, we feel like the Chicago Tribune for iPhone app offers a best-in-class experience to the end user by giving them features that matter and a deeper level of content than they are expecting out of a mobile app.

Syracuse Diners – Mobile App

As one component of the SyracuseDiners.com initiative developed by the Newhouse School’s Spring 2010 Multimedia Projects class, students produced a mobile-friendly version that allows users to easily get information, maps and other details about 50+ diners in the Syracuse, N.Y., area.

This mobile-friendly version became the first web-app produced by the Newhouse School to be added to Apple Store.

You can view the web version of the Syracuse Diners project here:
