NoTap name should convey the idea that it's not needed to "tap" on the iPhone screen to get your things done.
NoTap SMS lets users send messages using the real keyboard of any nearby desktop/laptops to type the message. This makes sending an SMS a lot faster and way more confortable.
Please take a look at the site (not yet proofreaded, sorry):
You could follow the "Learn More...." link and the "About" button if you
want to read more about the app to get some design ideas.
I'll *guarantee* the contest as soon as the system allows me to do that.
The app is useful to whom spends most of their day near a computer not on the road. So I expect more professionals then kids.
Edgy, beautiful icons, warm colors, must be clear and not blurry also at 57x57.
The icon must have a tiny (as small as possible but readable at 57x57) "SMS" text badge that I can update if I'll write another NoTap app (for example NoTap Email may use the same icon with a different "Email" text badge).
Having something on top of a fingerprint may be cool (but this is just an idea, feel free to be creative).
Two icon formats are needed:
1. 57x57px, 72ppi, no transparency, 24bit PNG (squared corners)
2. 512x512px,72ppi, no transparency, TIFF (squared corners)
The small one will be used as the iPhone application launch icon on black background, the big one will be used in the AppStore on light gray background.
Icons must have squared corners (iPhone software rounds corners by itself) but please provide screenshots with rounded corners if you can so I can better evaluate the final result.
Source file(s) of the winner artwork must be included.
I'll happy to give credits for the artwork in notap.it site (if the desiner wants).
I'll closely follow the contest (my timezone: CEST, UTC+1), feel free to ask questions or request more information (comments and messages).
