Webalon's founder, Alex Kearns, has worked on some of the BBC's most prestigious web projects, not least the Seven Ages of Rock site, which became a showpiece of the corporation's Web 2.0 technologies
We create beautiful, simple-to-use stuff for the web. We have thus far launched two products - popular time-based story telling app Tiki-Toki and beautiful family tree creator PeoplePlotr - and are currently working on a third product, due to be launched in the second half of 2013.
Tiki-Toki (www.tiki-toki.com) is our first consumer product. It allows anyone to create beautiful web-based interactive timelines that can be shared on the web. Since its launch in 2011, Tiki-Toki has grown to become one of the leading web-based timeline products. It is used by a wide range or organisations, from schools to businesses to non-profits, as well as by individuals.
PeoplePlotr (www.peopleplotr.com) was launched at the start of 2012, with the aim of providing a simple to use app for creating interactive family trees. The product is notable for allowing unrivalled customisation of how the family tree appears. Users can choose a backgrund image for their chart, create their own colour scheme, add explanatory panels of text, etc etc.
