Designing for Web and Tablets - Responsive Design

Kwik Page Template - Add Audio
We have a simple linear animation that emulates a page turn and plays when a page loads. Before we get started building this animation, we will add a small audio file that will also play every time a page loads. This is a simple 6 kb page flip sound .mp3 file.

Scrivener Writing Software Review
Scrivener, a complete writing studio, is just what I needed to help me write and keep me organized. Scrivener is built on the assumption that the writer will need the flexibility of writing a project in small chunks of text that can be easily repurposed.
