The Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace proudly launched their own iPhone App, powered by rappid App, this summer.
The Birthplace and Smack Dab Studios have a long history of working together – their content paired with their trust in SDS made the Birthplace, yet another, slam-dunk for rappid’s platform. Last Spring, Hannah and Liz approached the JGL team for brainstorming on ways to implement the App and how to make it fun for all ages. After a few chatty moments of explaining to them how the App would work – ideas were flying out of everyone’s mouths.
We could do a walking tour and mark all of the places around Savannah that are important to Girl Scout history. Oh! Let’s do a tour of the garden with those “square doohickey things”.
And that’s exactly what we did!
Over the past four months the Birthplace and Smack Dab Studios have worked together to build an App with features that include:
• Notable quotes from Daisy
• A comprehensive Girl Scout History walking tour of downtown Savannah with points of interest integrated on a map-view in direct relation to your GPS location
• A listing of house tours times, special events & hours of operation
• Area Savannah weather.
• An interactive QR Code guided tour of the side and rear gardens.
All of which is live in the App store and FREE for download here.
Yesterday, Liz stopped by the house to check out the installation of the Garden Tour. The interactive and educational piece adds more to the App than any of us had imagined. It is safe to say, Juliette Low being the innovative woman she was would be proud and impressed by the technology going on today right in her own back yard.
