Hesiod's Theogony App


This is the exact same design as my “Hesiod’s Works and Days” app; was able to directly import the list XML into it, then make a few minor textual changes and swap out the background, so the new app was pretty trivial to launch. Most of the work goes into the textual pre-processing for conversion of a text file into XML. Even the store listing and icon graphics were easy, since we just swapped out the text.

Hesiod’s “The Theogony” (almost misspelled it on release) is an epic poem presenting the Greek creation myth, and (along with Homer’s works) is our primary source document for the Greek mythos, listing hundreds of different characters.
