Sheridan Alumni – David Neumann (2004), Paul McMonagle (2010) and Yohei Yamaguchi (2012) worked on the TVO Ping Pong App available in the iTunes app store at https://t.co/JfyZtoua. The app was featured on iTunes Canada and has received over 10,000 downloads. Congratulations!
Neumann is Manager – TVO IdeaShaker Innovation Lab and also teaches Web Design and Development in the IMM program. He reports that the alumni created the idea for the app, the game play, interactivity and prototyped a proof of concept. They also created HTML5 banner ads and other campaign assets. The team including other IMM grads have made apps for TVO (http://ww3.tvo.org/apps) but in this case, due to campaign timing, the final development was outsourced. What an exciting concept to play ping pong between two players with devices as paddles.
