Ridgeway app launched for test
The app has been released in an early test version as part of Ali Pretty’s artist led walks criss-crossing the Ridgeway in Wiltshire in late June http://www.salisburyfestival.co.uk/wiltshires-white-horses-/walking-wiltshires-white-horses.aspx
Walkers are invited to test the app, give feedback and add to an interactive archive.
The app is designed to encourage contributions in sound and photography. A Twitter feed links users to a live conversation. This is a chance to share thoughts live with others who cant be out walking…and maybe for people at a distance to join the conversation. The app is in its first test version, so users are asked to be patient and send in feedback
A version that does not require GPS will be available when the map has been finalised. On Tuesday June 26, Richard White project curator, joins Ali Pretty for one of the walking days to support social networking and gather feedback. Following the June walks new assets will be added to the app and feedback responded to.
In July the app will be submitted for prepublication development and testing it to be available as a free app ahead of the installation launch at County Hall in September.
If you would like to join the testing process. here’s what to do: go to this link: http://the.appfurnace.com/test/1D5Nj/
Please do this on wifi as the data size is just over 2Mb, it will not download on 3G. Then all you have to do is let your smart device access location services so that it knows where it is! …
the beta version of the website is here: http://ridgeway.creativewiltshire.co.uk/home.html
map and app will be linked up shortly.
Creative Wiltshire is using the AppFurnace platform for building this app.
