Audiotours GmbH has designed an app for Android and iPhone for Museum Aargau. This app presents all six historical sites of the Canton of Aargau and also includes the historical collection. The app was developed with the help of the web CMS "Tour App Maker".
- The app increases awareness of the castles of Lenzburg, Wildegg, Hallwyl and Habsburg, Königsfelden monastery and the Legionary Trail especially for Smartphone users, and enhances the mobile visitor service. The wide range of information offered by Museum Aargau, from admission charges, photos and videos to seasonal exhibition themes is made available more quickly. Another goal is to network with communication channels such as social media and the website. Additional functions like «What's near me» show the distance and provide directions to the historical sites. Current programme announcements invite visitors to make a spontaneous visit or plan ahead for one.
Development possibilities are already being considered. Firstly, other language versions are being planned. In addition, there will be a range of attractive options for the teaching of history, for example with audio elements covering seasonal topics.
Simple app development with the "Tour App Maker"
The Aargau Museum app was developed with the help of the Tour App Maker from Audiotours GmbH and getunik. With this web-based Content Management System, app contents can be created and edited in a cost-effective and time-saving manner. The app can be extended easily at any time, be it with new content in the same structure or as a completely new application.
