Quran Project Release Candidate

It's been around 5 months since starting work with the Quran Project charity to bring an iOS port for their hardback book which provides a complete westernised introduction to Islam for non-muslims. A lot of work has been done over the months experimenting with the design and trying to programitcally convert a Microsoft Word document into a fluid 3D iOS app.

Initially we concepted out a 3D scene where you get to select the chapters via a 3D book interface.

However, this design was deemed to be too confusing and demanded a lot of 3d modelling concepts to go forward.

So we switched over to a Windows Phone 7 inspired 3D blended mix. Where you'd select the chapters via tiles over a 3D scene featuring the book.


However, the design didn't really work. It looked too unprofessional. Which lead us to scrapping the 3D scenery and going towards a more art driven chapter selection design.

It's taken 5 months, but I feel like we're close to having a build worth submitting. If anyone has any feedback or suggestions for further improvements, please feel free to leave a comment below.
