POETRY now for Android and iPad!

Posted by jamie | July 13, 2011

We’re really excited to announce that the award-winning POETRY app is now available on Android and an enhanced iPad version. Tierra designed and developed the super-popular iPhone version in collaboration with The Poetry Foundation last year.

The iPhone app was also substantially upgraded when we launched the iPad version in late May to include streaming audio, text-size scaling, poet bios, hundreds of new poems and more. The iPad version includes a big bonus: free PDF downloads for the four most recent versions of Poetry Magazine, the Foundation’s flagship publication.  The Android version has all the same great features as the iPhone app too.

We’re also honored that the POETRY app has been recognized with multiple awards over the past year, including winning in HOW + Print Magazines’  Color in Design 2011 Awards, an Appy Award nod, and others.

So download your favorite version from the App Store or Android Market and check out the “essential app” that hundreds of thousands of others are raving about.  Soon you’ll be reciting poetry aloud in the subway, whispering to your betrothed by candlelight, or simply pondering the wonders of beautiful verse. Enjoy!

App Launch: China Investment Monitor

Posted by melissa | May 6, 2011

Rhodium CIM

During our kickoff meeting with the smart guys at Rhodium Group, Trevor Houser leapt from his seat, grabbed a marker and started sketching out his idea for an interactive map…on the window.

Our collaboration resulted in the successful launch of Rhodium Group’s China Investment Monitor, a web app that accompanies the publication of a major study, An American Door? Maximizing the Benefits of Direct Investment from China, written by Daniel H. Rosen and Thilo Hanemann of The Rhodium Group.

The app gives users an interactive view of Chinese investment in the United States by state, year, industry, investment type (greenfield or acquisition) and ownership (private or government).

The report has been featured in numerous articles, including The New York Times (“As China Invests, U.S. Could Lose”), The Wall Street Journal (“U.S. Warns China Is Closing Up Again”) and The Washington Post (“US: Restrictions on foreign investment are barrier to improving US-China commercial relations”).
