Update to the iPad story…

If you’ve read the current feature on the JMU web about the seniors, Josh Smead, Matt Burton and Peter Epley who developed the iPad app for the Lisanby collection, listen up………..here’s the latest update:

I heard from Josh Smead (’12) this morning. Josh is in Los Angeles visiting family for spring break. He’s also taking the opportunity to visit Mr. Lisanby, the man whose life he has spent two years exploring.

Josh is looking forward to showing Mr. Lisanby the JMU web story. Josh will also be delivering to a DVD of footage from the opening of the Lisanby exhibit in January. In one apropos little irony, Mr. Lisanby, who was unable to attend the exhibit opening in January, will be able to tour the museum via the new Lisanby iPad app.

Josh also tells me that since the iPad app’s debut in late January, both the NIH and Martha Jefferson hospitals have expressed an interest in having Josh create a custom app for them. He suspects this is only the beginning, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, the number of downloads of the Lisanby iPad app keeps going up, delivering JMU, the Lisanby collection and one great idea all over the world.
