Popular Science decided to get a presence in the Chrome Web Store by releasing one of their issues in an app form. Aside from big full-screen images and HTML5 video, they wanted a level of interactivity that would closely mimic an app on the iPad.
The project required a lot of collaboration with the designers because not all of the interactions could be conveyed easily in written form. Rules on how the social sharing aspects would work to link users into a Chrome app, embedding video using proper codecs for Chrome, and even understanding how a user would use their mouse vs their keyboard to read the magazine. I asked a lot of questions when needed to ensure the final product matched what was originally envisioned.
