At Forest Giant, a mobile app development company in Louisville, Kentucky, We’re always keeping a watchful eye on the latest trends. Our ATO (Around the Office) posts are designed to be a little peak behind the curtain of what we are talking about. Whether it’s a new iPhone app, a new technology for development, or some hardware that we’re excited to try out. Here’s what we’re talking about this week.
We’re pretty big fans of Dropbox here at the office. A few of us also use Mailbox . Today Dropbox made a number of announcements such as new updates to their iOS apps, a new android and desktop app for Mailbox, and an unveiling of the latest addition to their family Carousel . The new app presents a refreshed way to look at your photos as well the promise of them always being backed up to your Dropbox account. In many ways the features resemble Apple’s photo stream. Only time will tell if Dropbox will continue to provide a way to set it apart. We definitely think its worth checking out, especially if you’re already a Dropbox user. If you on the fence about Carousel, check out the video below.
On March 14, a few of us attended STLUX, a conference in St. Louis that covered many areas of product ideation, design, and development. In the coming weeks we will feature more examples what we took away from STLUX and specific examples of how UX is practiced at Forest Giant. For now, a sample of some of the concepts and themes of STLUX.
We couldn’t make it to Austin for SXSW 2014, but the crew at Forest Giant did get to work on something pretty amazing for the attendees of the Fast Company VIP Party, sponsored by our Kentucky kin, Woodford Reserve. Hooking up with Magnolia Photo Booth Co. , we helped build the brains that would power Magbooth’s first “GIFBooth,” a beefed-up photobooth that magically crafts sharable, branded animated images, while curating what’s sure to be a wild time at SXSW though an on-site projector and various social media.

Automobile tech has become quite a hot topic these past few years. We’ve shared before about cool projects that seek to shake up this industry. Automatic, until now, has been one of the forerunners.
