As part of a sponsorship for Open House Melbourne, distriqt developed an iPhone and Android mobile app to support the event during 2013 and 2014. As we are partly based in Melbourne, this was a great opportunity to show our support and love for the city, and help give this great not-for-profit event a new way to reach over 100,000 of the public who attend each year.
The app features a full list of over 100 buildings which are open for tours, an interactive map, a personal itinerary plus social integration with Twitter and Instagram and more.
Users can browse through all buildings, or shake their phone to discover a randomly selected building. OHM provide beautiful imagery of all the locations that participate in the event.
The interactive map allows people to find buildings by location, filter by different criteria, and get directions to each place if desired.
