Well, the best place would be to sketch or do something to get a solid list of features and how we think the interface could fit together so we know what we'll need to do as we move forward.

An icon isn't that much in the grand scheme of the app...

In summary, at the very least we should try and make a confirmed feature list for the app, then if somebody wants to work on how it'll fit together, go for it.

1. encyclopedia
2. D'ni clock
3. ki time clock
4. links
5. pictures
I'm guessing Christian doesn't want us to add a pod calculator

I wonder if it would be possible to work in some features of WhoM. I guess we could present things in either of the following ways:

1. A clock page with D'ni and KI time
2. A D'ni Time page and a KI page with time and buddy list

pod clock has KI time, so it's not as necessary, But we do need a d'ni clock. And a ki app would take too long for now i believe.

But wait, the encyclopedia part hasn't been fully though out yet. Will it or will it not be a copy of updated Mystlore pages? If that's so then we can have a caching part built in to make a database for offline use. Or is it going to be through the app store? I'm confused! If it's through the app store we need someone like Christian who knows Objective C, if it's web based we need someone fluent in HTML5.

User input:
Everytime I try to look at Mystlore the server is busy.
Do we need to start with a slimmed down version which is less unwieldy? If the site cannot cope with the traffic it will only cause frustration for the users and defeat the objective.

How about a personal calendar?

Maybe this could be integrated with Myst calendars produced by fan sites and forums?

How to do this
What about a user definable space to add RSS feeds.

eg this would be useful:
an RSS feed of up to date cavern events so that people know what is going on in cavern - is the GoMe calendar available in this format?

one might never miss a meeting again...

;-)

Christian and I had a discussion about this.
Summary:
-The encyclopedia content has to be changed some for iOS. More eye-pleasing.
-He would not mine having someone integrate Zik, although he would like to keep it as a standalone app. Communication between the two may also be possible.
-The Clock should have a Analog view, English digital view, and D'ni digital view.
-A video or screenshot may be possible for this, but would require a lot.
-We could also either use someone else's art, or have the writers make a 3-d model from the models and textures of uru. I guess a moving number band could work also, but not pretty.
-We need more than one programmer. Any volunteers?
iT SHOULD BE RELEASE VIA THE APP STORE, IN MY OPINIION. SORRY I'M TO LAZY TO FIX TE CAPS.
That's basically it, unless Christian has something to add.
Oh, and one thing, tan: I expressed the concern a tiny icon may not hold all the sketch. But he believed differently. Any comments?

I'm not quite sure what you meant by the grammar here, but I'll try my best to figure it out.

As icons get smaller, details will not be as prominent. There's a part of the design process in icons where you say "What are the key features of this icon that I will need at small sizes so it's still recognizable and looks good." You can't just resize an image, because that looks bad.

Best approach? Start big (in this case, the 512x512 App Store icon) then work down and modify as you go.

Also, can you send along some contact info for Christian? I have a question I need to ask...
