Last week we had an audience with Prince Andrew The Duke of York, KG at Pitch@Palace 6.0 to demo our new product for 2017.

Along with 16 other entrepreneurs we pitched the concept of a web-based version of our GPS-triggered native apps to an audience of CEOs, Investors and Mentors at The AMRC (Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre), Sheffield.

Entrepreneurs from Biotech and Medical Technology to Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality all had 3 minutes to win the hearts of the judges.

“The standard and passion of Businesses today was outstanding. We will support you with next steps.”

The Duke of York

Our pitch was to get introductions to key decision makers who run tourist attractions and heritage sites. Our new cross-browser web app uses HTML5 geolocation to trigger places of interest and trails, just like our native (iOS and Android) app software currently offers.

The website will come online in … Read More »

Infographic – Native or Web app?

Posted on December 21st, by admin in Uncategorized. Comments Off on Infographic – Native or Web app?

To outline the basics and benefits of a mobile website vs. mobile app, MDG Advertising developed the following informative infographic.

It outlines the options and opportunities behind both mobile methods, along with the facts and figures regarding reach and response to help organisations make the right move to mobile.

Ultimately it depends what you want the your app to do, but if you are ready this page then you are probably looking for a location aware solution. We’ve been developing GPS-triggered native apps since 2010, but now, thanks to our collaboration with Nottingham Trent University, we are offering location-aware web apps too.


Charles Darwin audio trails – Bromley

Explore five Charles Darwin-themed audio trails produced on behalf of Bromley Council. The audio guides explore the countryside Darwin called his ‘landscape laboratory’ and celebrate how Charles Darwin formulated his amazing theory of evolution in the Kent countryside – a theory that rocked the deeply religious Victorian world, and even Darwin himself!

Each Charles Darwin-themed audio trail is accompanied by a downloadable map and a family activity sheet to help everyone delve into the world of Charles Darwin, and discover how he got to grips with ‘the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection’.

Downe audio trail

Trails Mid-Wales – writing for children

Posted on July 16th, by admin in Case Study, Uncategorized. Comments Off on Trails Mid-Wales – writing for children

Following one of our digital media workshops we were approached by Powys County Council to write 3 pilot trails for their app ‘Trails Mid-Wales’. The feedback was so positive they asked us to produce nine more!

I absolutely LOVE it! so much so that we want more like this!!!! Pretty Please.

Hazel Bowen, Tourism Support Officer, Powys County Council

The twelve trails, aimed at the over 50s and/or families, were written ” to enlighten our audience with rich and interactive interpretation of the area.” We used location-based stories and poems to bring the children’s trails to life.

Below are extracts from three of the family trails:

 Erwood Trail – Stop 6

 

I like to hunt in rivers. I like to eat small fish.
The baby nymphs of mayflies is another favourite dish
I swim under the water, go fishing with my beak.
So I’m not your usual perching bird, … Read More »
