trace app for iPad by the morpholio project
the second app launched by the morpholio project, ‘trace’ will enable architects and designers to sketch on digital trace paper on an iPad. users can draw upon imported images or backgrounds as well as adding comments or ideas which may be emailed to colleagues, increasing global design communication. users may quickly give feedback, information or corrections in a graphic manner. the canary yellow sheets may be layered or removed with a ‘remember’ and ‘forget’ action allowing for a drawing which cumulatively represents important ideas generated by a free thinking process. layer opacities may be adjusted but conceptually differ from photoshop layers by representing a stacking of ideas instead of organization within a working file.
with a projection of 50 billion mobile internet connections around the world by 2020, amounting to about 7 devices per person, this is a motion to begin harnessing the power of these tools in the design and creative fields.
