Mobile Application Inspiration

So before coming up with my initial response to the brief, I thought it would be a good idea to have a look at some examples from other museums and try and get some inspiration to contextualise my initial thought’s into a solid idea. Below are some of the iOS mobile applications that I looked at:

London Official Guide

London Official App London Official App London Official App London Official App

Features:

– Offline maps/GPS  – Personalised Offline Itineraries  – Step-by-Step Directions
– All Sights/Tourist Attractions  – Restaurant/Bar Guides
– Recommendations based on Weather/Time/Location

What I Like = The ability to view attractions on a map and create a personal itinerary for the day. The pages linked to each attraction contains usefulinformation such as opening times and review’s.

Natural History Museum

Features:

– Directions to Exhibits around the Museum  – Daily/Weekly Event Listing’s
– Interactive Museum Map  – Places to Eat/Drink  – Museum Content Galleries

What I Like = The ability to get directions from one exhibit to another. Also the interactive map with a short description of what that part of themuseum contains will help people find what they want to look at easily.

Magic Tate Ball

What I Like = The artwork that the show’s is based on a range of factor’s based on the individual user. It gives the user the ability to share their result on either Facebook or Twitter which may in itself promote the museum to their social network.
