Here’s the latest update from the lab at Eastgate. That’s a Tinderbox outline, viewed on the iPhone or iPad.

The immediate goal is a viewer – a tool for browsing Tinderbox documents you’ve created on a Macintosh. To keep things light, we’ll probably have separate apps for Tinderbox and Twig maps and for outlines.

Touch interfaces are new, so we expect lots of tinkering with exactly what gestures we’ll use and what they’ll mean. The small size of the iPhone screen is obviously a constraint, but I think this may well turn out to a useful tool for lots of people.

There’s still lots to do. If you’ve got a critical application for something like this that can’t wait, though, you might get in touch with us at Eastgate.
