The Taunton Press Magazine Archive Applications

Portfolio image

This project is a series of desktop applications that provides a comprehensive archive of publication content, some of which date back over 40 years. The products feature full text indices of the publication content and also support user bookmarking.

Why was it built?

Taunton Press wanted a cross-platform application to replace its existing product written in Adobe Air since that platform would no longer support 64-bit macOS. As part of the project, I was required to reverse engineer the existing product without having access to its source code.
