    Working on a simple timeline idea for a political map feature in an iPad app. The idea is to choose any US election year in history to see data for the states. Not enough room to show all election years horizontally so I thought that years would appear and fade away as you move the slider. I thought using the whitehouse for "home" was kinda fun.

    Nice debut! Love the White House "home button" and the idea for trailing years. One thought, wouldn't the area w/ the date be the scrubber? If so, the user's finger would obscure the current date. Might make sense to essentially invert the gauge, bringing the current year above the scrubber, to the same baseline as the trailing years.

    Thanks! I thought about that too. I think the current date would appear above the scrubber fully opaque and when the user releases their finger the date would "fall" into the scrubber. Maybe. Still playing with ideas.
