The challenge

The Nottingham Conferences Walking Guide app, for the University of Nottingham’s event management business, had to provide users with information about the different buildings on each of the three University campuses. Giving them clear directions so that they could walk from their current location on campus to the correct building.

What we did

We used Google Maps as our source for mapping and directions for this Nottingham Conferences Walking Guide. The client wanted to be able to update the building information when they wanted, so we built a web admin tool and a PHP web-service to allow the app to access up-to-date information every time it's used.

The app was developed using Phonegap as it allowed us to build the app just once using HTML, CSS and Javascript. We then compiled it into native apps for iOS, Windows Mobile and Android, and made it available in the Google Play store and the Apple app store for free, so that conference delegates can be sent a download link or easily find it themselves.
