Welcome To…Native Apps

Welcome To…Native Apps

Our Welcome to app software (iOS & Android) is the gold standard for location-responsive 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 software has been specifically designed to encourage exploration of the countryside, heritage sites, museums and tourist attractions.


Our high quality modular apps have all the advantages of a bespoke package.

Welcome To 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.

Features

Places

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 page that can be populated with text, images, audio and video.

Mapping

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.

Layer (geo-referenced) illustrative maps over Google/Apple maps in apps to access even when there is no mobile reception

Add an illustrative map that will work regardless of wifi and mobile reception

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!
