Places and Trails native app platform
Our Places and Trails native app platform for iOS & Android is the gold standard for location-responsive, interactive visitor guide apps. It uses GPS and iBeacons to determine the user’s location and display nearby places of interest on interactive mapping.
With rich content and optional plugins, our Places and Trails native app software has been specifically designed to encourage exploration of the countryside, heritage sites, museums and tourist attractions.
Native Apps are installed via the App Store or Google Play onto (and limited to) iOS and Android devices. Once downloaded they are fully operational, regardless of mobile network coverage, as they support offline mapping. Users are notified when they trigger a place even if the app isn’t on screen (backgrounded).
Our high quality and modular digital visitor guide apps have all the advantages of a bespoke package.
Places and Trails features a sliding navigation menu that allows users to switch from one task to another. Once downloaded your app will work without an internet connection, making it perfect for outdoor areas and venues with poor wifi coverage. Our apps support multiple languages.
Take a look at some of our case studies.
Places of interest are displayed both in list format and as a series of pins on the app’s interactive map. They can be filtered by category. Places can be manually selected (from the map/list view) or triggered automatically with GPS (outdoors) and Bluetooth beacons (indoors).
Each Place has its own individual rich content multimedia page that can be populated with text, images, audio and video.
Curate and add walking/cycling trails to your app to link places of interest.
Interactive waypoints help direct users around the trail.
We use Google Maps on both platforms (iOS and Android). Add an illustrative map layer to offer the exact detail you require. It will display offline too.
Our mapping page provides more info and details some useful online tools you may find helpful.
Native apps operate faster and more efficiently than web apps as they are fully compatible with the device’s hardware and native features. Our iOS and Android apps can be enhanced with plugins and support multiple languages.
Taking photographs is an integral part of visiting heritage sites – make the experience even more fun with Souvenir Photo. Give visitors the opportunity to get creative with themed photo frames that they can share with their friends, family and followers. It will build customer relations and strengthen your brand too!
Bring archive photos alive with SUPERimpose – a simple form of Augmented Reality. Open old photographs, illustrations, reconstruction drawings etc into the device’s camera and use the fade bar to contrast and compare the past with the present.
Further features include Rewards, Achievements, iSpy and Postcards. We are happy to build new functionality for you too.
