Interactive Zlatan Ibrahimovic biography iPad app published using InDesign and Mag+

Swedish publisher Bonnierfrlagen has created an interactive biography app about controversial AC Milan footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Swedish publisher Bonnierfrlagen has created an interactive biography app about controversial AC Milan footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic for the iPad to coincide with his brief return to Britain as he travels with AC Milan to face Arsenal in the UEFA Champions League on March 6.

The app was developed by Bonnier R&D, and uses the Mag+ software and plug-in for Adobe InDesign that was initially developed by them. Using layered Mag+ architecture and rich media the new app brings the reader up close and personal to Ibrahimovic's defining moments. Its launch augments publication of the bestselling autobiography I Am Zlatan Ibrahimovic: My Story, released in print late last year.

In the iPad version, images and video are integrated with text to offer a new kind of reading experience. A whole new dimension is added - literally - as the original text can now be read along geographical and chronological interactive storylines."I wanted to tell everyone my story and let fans understand where I come from. The app is a great way to do this. This is how I always wanted the story to be experienced," says Ibrahimovic.

Unique features only available in the iPad biography include:

Timeline: explore the original text re-created as a chronological interactive storyline
Geo stories: explore the story geographically on an interactive map or using the GPS of the iPad when travelling
Stop-motion storytelling: interactive frame-by-frame studies of goals and tricks
Tattoo stories: explore Ibrahimovic's tattoos interactively
Dialogue storytelling: The first meeting with manager Mino Raiola
Memorabilia gallery: close-up view of Ibrahimovic's boots through the years
Statistics: career told in numbers with adjacent images
Picture gallery: life outside of football
Personal video introduction by Ibrahimovic
Unique behind-the-scenes interview with author David Lagercrantz on writing the text with Ibrahimovic

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
