Parks Discovery: Native iOS and Android Universal apps launched
The Parks Discovery app from Parks Victoria has just been released. The app is available on both iOS and Android, and in both mobile and tablet format.
Parks Victoria approached Wave Digital a few months back with a problem to solve. Their former magazine was in need of digitisation so Wave Digital made our recommendations and the concept for the Parks Discovery app was borne.
The app consists of two broad sections, one called Parks Magazine which contains interesting articles on Victoria’s parks, and a Parks Directory.
Wave worked with Parks Victoria to populate both sections of the apps separately. We broke the magazine section requirements into a CSV template that could be completed by the client, then associated all necessary images with the correct article. The directory component proved more challenging. We solved the challenge by building a custom map interface which had an overlay of all of the parks’ locations.
