To The Brink: JFK and the Cuban Missile Crisis for iPad

JFK Gizmodo App of The Day


The “To The Brink” app brings the National Archives and its JFK Library and Museum exhibit to iPads. This beautifully designed app contains many of the same photographs, documents, and recordings found in the exhibit — allowing people unable to visit the exhibit a chance to experience one of the most extraordinary moments in American history.

We took this project initially because we wanted to test the side scrolling presentation format that was going to be the trademark feature of our Flowboard interactive presentation authoring app.  We saw “To The Brink” as a great way to validate our new Flowboard presentation format prior to launching the actual Flowboard app, and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the response that we got.  Gizmodo made “To The Brink” app of the day and said that “apps like these are one of the reasons for having a tablet.”.
