What We Did
Working with social media agency, The Ministry of Social, the brief was to create a Bar & Venue finder for the Edinburgh International Festival so that users could easily source a pint of Deuchars. There was also a need for daily competition prize draws and a way to keep in touch with users instantly as tickets and locations became available.
We designed and developed the App for both iOS and Android platforms and used our D:CMS Content Mangement System to power the back end service.
The CMS allows the Client to add in new Bars & Venues and upload images and information which is synched with the App so the data is continously updated.
The App was a huge success during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, offering users a daily countdown prize draw for sold out show tickets and to find the latest venues nearby to enjoy a Deuchars.
Once the Festival was over, the App was further updated to introduce new functionality for a Tours section, to list out Bars relating to the John Rebus novels by Ian Rankin, and also local ghost tours.
There is also a 'checkin' function within the App so you can complete in-app challenges to gain badges for frequency of visits to your local bars. (*drink responsibly!)Get in touch
