Heritage at your finger tips
Monday, August 15th, 2011
Wondering what to do before the summer ends? Not to worry, the new Heritage Week iPhone app, developed by Arekibo, will help you find the best events happening across the country during this year’s Heritage Week, taking place between the 20 and 28 of August.
With the 2011 iPhone app you can search all of the 1,300 events across the country by location, so you can find the best events happening near you (or far away if you want to visit some of the amazing beauty spots dotted around the country).
Got some free time coming up soon? Great! The Heritage Week iPhone app lets you search for events by date, so you can be sure you won’t miss a thing.
If you have a passion for archaeology, want to hone your sporting skills, or just need an event to entertain the under 12s, the app’s category search will help you find those events you just can’t miss.
Speaking of not missing an event, with the app’s ‘Favourite’ feature you can bookmark those not-to-be-missed events together in one place.
The Heritage Week iPhone app is not just the place to find out the latest about the 2011 Heritage Week of events; it is the place to share events, invite friends and discuss your experiences. With the app you can share via your Facebook Wall your experiences of the events you have visited.
But the app is not just a great way of telling your friends about the experiences you have had during the many excellent events taking place throughout the week; it is also a great way of arranging which events to visit with your friends. The Heritage Week app lets you create Facebook Events to which you can invite your family and friends, ensuring that no matter what event you attend you will be in good company.
The app gives you all the information you need for a great day out, including whether the event is happening indoors or out, whether it’s accessible by wheelchair or suitable for children. And if you want more information about the event, the app will tell you how to contact the organiser. Sure, what more could you want?
Speaking at the launch of the app Michael Starrett, CEO of the Heritage Council said, “we are seeing a true meeting of the old and the new with the launch today of this National Heritage Week iPhone app. A key element of National Heritage Week is its accessibility and inclusion of all, young and old. In addition to the dedicated Heritage Week website and Event Guide, production of this iPhone app is the next step in our commitment to promoting the diverse range of events taking place nationwide throughout the week”.
