Your Custom-Branded App

You don't have to know how to code. Or to hire a team of designers and developers. You don't even need to know anything about software or technology. Yet you can create innovative custom mobile apps. With the click of a button, you'll have your own app – with your own branding and content...in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store...designed to work with phones and tablets and including leading-edge technologies and advanced marketing techniques.

Software MAINTENANCE & Feature Updates

Looking down the road, we'll keep your app up-to-date with new technology without you having to lift a finger. In fact, we're constantly adding new features and fixing bugs,  taking care of software maintenance and pushing the latest changes to the app stores on your behalf. The process is easy, simple, and hassle-free.

ANALYTICS

Your custom apps gives you insights you've never had before. Analytics show which art is being viewed (and which isn't) and how often patrons are interacting with it. Analytics also give you the ability to monitor your marketing campaigns to see which artwork and which channels are most effective.

Audio Narrations – in multiple languages

Let your patrons listen to the artwork's story – in their native tongue. Your custom app will play audio narrations for each artwork in a variety of languages.

SELLING ART

You can sell artwork right from the app and give your users an easy way to pay. With integration to Apple Pay and Android Pay, users can buy art with a single push of a button.

Augmented Reality

Augmented Reality (AR) has become a mainstream technology. Basically, AR provides a way to visually combine the real world with digital images. Objects are layered over a view of the real world.

Your custom apps come complete with a full set of AR features, including the ability to visualize paintings on their actual walls, complete with proper proportions and colors.

Scannable art for docent tours

Your custom app integrates technology for image scanning and recognition using the phone camera to scan and recognize objects you have chosen. In short, all the images you upload are recognizable, so when a user finds one, the app will tell them all about it, including your personal audio narrative.

Patrons can walk around a gallery, scan paintings, and hear the narrative of the artwork as told by the artist or a docent – all in their native language.

3D Technology

Your custom apps also come with the ability to render and recognize three-dimensional objects you specify, showing 3D images in augmented reality. This means patrons can overlay sculptures in their physical space--or  scan them and listen to the audio narration as told by the artist/docent.

Beacons for Location & Proximity Experiences

With support for Bluetooth low energy (BLE) beacons that support Apple-backed iBeacon™ and Google-backed Eddystone™, your app provides exciting new ways to interact with users.

For starters, a beacon can automatically notify patrons in the vicinity that you have a custom app. And when they arrive at your location, it can let them know that the app is accessible to them.

Certain artwork, like dynamic art or glasswork, is more difficult for computers to recognize. For these pieces, a beacon placed near the piece will provide patrons with the most reliable method to hear audio narratives.

GPS & Maps

The mobile phone knows where it's located – so does your mobile app so it can provide a mapping experience that shows the user where you're located.

DEFERRED DeepLinkING

Deeplinking allows you and your users to share links that go to a specific point in your app.

But what happens when patrons get a link but they don't have the app installed? Through a technology called "deferred deep links", users are asked to install the appropriate app (iOS or Android) so that they land on the exact content that was shared.

CUSTOMIZED LAYOUT

You can customize the layout of your app,  adding pages for Collections, Artists, Maps, and Contacts.

CUSTOMIZED FEATURES

You decide which features you want to include/exclude.

  • Custom Images – your catalog of images are available for users to visualize in the real world.
  • Custom Targets – choose the way that AR is enable. Use images in a magazine, business cards, or whatever suits your needs.
  • Custom Locations – show custom AR images at locations of your choice.

Invitations

Want to invite people to use the apps? Want your users to do the same? To facilitate viral growth, we've included an easy way for app users to personally invite their friends. They can pick from their list of Facebook friends or comb through their address book of contacts. Either way (or both), you've provided a way to grow you audience!

Push Notification

Push Notifications are a staple of mobile apps and, when used wisely, can keep your users current with the messages the you'd like to send. You can segment which users with whom to communicate and can scheduled when the messages are sent.

When a new event is coming up, notify your users through the click of a button.

1:1 Chat (coming soon)

Give your users a way to chat with you directly through the app, either through text messaging or phone calls. Neither you nor your users will have to disclose a phone number – all text and calls are handled directly through the app so privacy is maintained for both parties.

UNLIMITED CLOUD storage

We use Google's infrastructure, which provides 99.9% availability and high performance through a worldwide network of servers.

Privacy & Security

All data is encrypted – both in transit and at rest.
