The University of Virginia Museum (UVaM) iPad App is a great example of a native app featuring embedded spins.
We are often asked if it’s possible to embed spin in a custom iPad/iPhone app. It is! There are two options:
- Self-contained app. This involves obtaining a stand-alone copy of our spin viewer and the data for the spins you would like to embed in the app. We offer these options as part of our business plans. Please contact us for pricing and details.
- App with spins hosted externally. In this case, you add a UIWebView widget to your app that loads a webpage (HTML) that includes the iframe embed code for your spin. The advantage is that this is less expensive and easier. The disadvantage is that the spins won’t display without an Internet connection and there will be some load time (just like you would experience in a normal web browser).
