Design Challenge: Take the successful Blancspot iPhone experience and bring it to the iPad, taking advantage of the larger screen and existing interaction paradigm of the iPad platform.

PlayMode Experience on iPad
The iPad version of Blancspot takes advantage of the very large screen of the iPad and really makes the Blancspot cinematic experience shine. A large, rich visual world sets Blancspot apart from all other news application running on the iPad.
ReaderMode on the iPad uses a unique two scrolling column approach that allows users to simultaneously read the news story and see relevant Tweets on the same screen. All of this is overlaid on the image to still keep the user connected with the strong visual the prompted their interaction in the first place.
Redesigned the Facebook sharing UX to be inline with standard iPad navigation style taking advantage of modal windows to focus the user on a singular action, but without taking them totally out of context from their previous state.
