Leica PMA Competition App

I was introduced to Leica by my friend and business partner, Nick Rains. Nick is one of Australia's leading photographers and has been shooting and teaching photography for 30 years. 

The Leica project involved creating a small iPad app that would allow visitors to the booth to register for a competition via one of two iPad kiosks. A critical issue in the brief was that entries would be automatically recorded and available for export in a .csv format. To accomplish this I used two products, the first was the Oomph tablet publishing platform, used to create the App and TypeForm for the design and creation of the actual form itself and the data management. 


Oomph has an updated feature set that includes some new Kiosk features that make configuration of the app, locked down on an iPad, very simple to implement. Typeform provides an online application to build the coolest forms which are then delivered dynamically, via WiFi, into the app. With everything set up and locked down changes to the form can quickly be made via the Typeform website; the changes are available immediately on the iPad. Typeform tracks all of the entries and provides analysis of the entries and provides tools to export the data in various forms.

The installation started in Melbourne on Wednesday morning and by the afternoon both iPad kiosks were up and running. The exhibition kicked off Thursday morning at 10am and I took the opportunity to shoot a 360˚ panorama of the Leica booth.
