This year has been a big one for us in terms of App Development. Not only have we been producing a variety of our own projects (Trivia Night and Sharpen) but we’ve had the amazing opportunity to work with some really exciting institutions.
We were fortunate enough to get to work with a selection of Glasgow’s finest museums this year, producing both in-house exhibition apps and appstore releases.
Century of Style
This beautiful exhibition of 19th-century clothing comes from Glasgow Museums’ collection of European costume. The app allows you to delve into details of each item and discover its history in greater detail, as well as zoom in on some of the finer details using high definition photography.
Scotland street has always been a hub of information for the history of local schools and those that attended, but a lot of the information has been difficult to obtain.
A new push has been made to digitise a lot of the old records and photos, with a custom app being displayed on iPads throughout the museum to help suers interact with it.
Visit Scotland Street Museum for a hands on experience with the app.
Kelvingrove Museum has always been home to a hugely impressive collection of archaeological treasures, ranging from stone age to medieval periods.
In order to bring their new exhibition to life, the museum commissioned us to produce an iPad app that would allow visitors to learn and discover interesting details about the individual items on display. Along with the detailed records, the app also allows users to zoom in on high definition imagery and even pinch, zoom and ‘spin’ detailed videos of certain objects for a closer look.
Visit the museum’s Study Centre upstairs to interact with the app in person or download free from the AppStore.
