Akira - Presentation

Akira - Presentation

Akira was an entry to the Adobe Express Apps Contest for Cognizance 2012. Made over little less than 20 hours, it was an experiment into using Phonegap as a way to develop cross-platform mobile applications easily.

It won the first prize in the event, and was deemed "way ahead of the other entries". I will be uploading the source code soon on github (along with the blog post at captnemo.in)

The presentation was made hastily using Keynote on an iPad and mostly includes screenshots for the development workflow)
