We were delighted to hear that Oli, one of our longest standing clients, picked up awards for two apps at the 2015 Appy Awards in Dublin last week. Oli scooped first and second prize in the ‘Best Travel and Tourism’ category for the Sion Mills and Failte Ireland apps we developed for them earlier in the year.
Gold went to an app developed for Sion Mills, one of the most intriguing and interesting villages in Northern Ireland. The bespoke iOS application was designed as a audio visual experience that leads the visitor around the village using a playlist of geo-fenced triggers. The experience was further enhanced with advanced mapping, photo galleries, video support and an augmented reality feature all wrapped together in a custom UI.
Second prize was awarded to the Dublin Discovery Trails app. The app provides a digital experience to visitors in Ireland through a self-guided audio tour.
