inSpace 3D browser release 2 – 18th August 2014
Over 2013 we pushed a lot of functionality into the code base but much of this functionality is still not fully exposed to users. Our aim was to get it integrated into the architecture and ready to be fleshed out and exposed once we are happy that the basic functionality of the browser was working well. Over the last few months our development focus has been around nailing a simple proposition – that of viewing and sharing photo albums in 3D Webspace. We have been working hard to make sure that the functionality required for this, as well as our core navigation paradigm, really works well. This consolidation has also included a significant amount of bug fixing on the data streaming systems so, all together, inSpace is starting to feel like a real product now . The latest release takes us to a point where 3D Webspace can be smoothly navigated and many concurrent objects, such as images and Wikipedia pages, can be streamed and viewed seamlessly. Additionally the navigation bar functionally has been optimised, the up, forward and back buttons are now working consistently which allows you to tour where you have recently been. We have also added a grid layout option as we continue to enhance the functionality available in the layout system.
