Sliced Bread launch the Cash Tin app at the App Store. A simple to use app that tracks your petty cash expenses. Add cash to the tin and then create new expenses that will automatically deduct the amount from the cash tin balance. You can add a date, description and an amount. The app will even allow you to take a photo of the receipt for reference. The unique aspect of this app is that it enables you to export a working spreadsheet along with the images to an email address of your choice, which is useful in a small business or home environment. The idea came from a need at the office which was then born into a working app!

Last year we started work on our first (web based) Microsoft Silverlight project, with our client Imagine Education, design partner Resolution Creative and .NET developer Sami Sinervä. Called the Innovative Schools Toolkit, development started in May last year and the site took on a number of iterations before going live just before the Christmas break. It very different to working in (our usual) Flash, we are happy with end result and see great potential for using Silverlight going forward, the way it draws animation seems to be quite slick.
The Innovative Schools Toolkit is an accessible and practical guide for you and your school community to begin the journey of innovation. It’s intended to be a starting point rather than a complete solution and it offers a process that can be customized based on your unique needs.
The online toolkit is part of Microsoft’s Partners In Learning initiative and the application allows schools to asses their positioning using the multiple choice tool which displays online graphs. The toolkit also plays out video and allows schools access to download documents.
Argos have recently launched this Sliced Bread created game (client: Meteorite) to coincide with their ‘Toy Tester for Year‘ competition and ‘Big Play’ Roadshows. The game has 3 competency zones, each with 4 playable levels. Players can also invite their friends to join them in mini high scoreboards. You can play the game here.
I’m Angus and this is my awesome Toy Testing factory. It’s my job to make sure all the toys are off the Fun-o-meter scale! But there are so many great toys here, I need another Toy Tester to help me. So let’s see if you’re up to the job. Collect as many toys as possible from the Big Play Area zones – the clock is ticking!

We recently completed an animated informercial for Avanti Communications PLC (one of our neighbours here in Rivington Street!) Business Internet Continuity (BIC) product. The sequence is 1 and a half minutes in length and explains how the product works and its benefits to the business user/ ISP. You can view the video here on Avanti’s website.
Avanti’s Business Internet Continuity (BIC) product provides an automatic alternative route to the Internet for a business customer over a satellite link. The service is triggered when a customer’s fixed–line connection to the Internet fails and automatically maintains the IP addresses used in the customer’s network.
We are looking to increase our talent pool of Maya riggers and lighting artists. Please note at this moment in time we are NOT looking for animators or modellers. Please send your CV and example links of work (via email) to info [at] sbanimation [dot] com, with the subject header referring to your competency.
