The brief from the National Transport Authority (NTA) was to build an enhanced version of the Walk Dublin system (previously developed for Dublin City Council).
The project included additional functionality for the iPhone app and an Android version of the product. We also enhanced the content management system and redesigned the app to give it a more contemporary feel.
One new feature introduced is Hidden Gems. This feature uses geo-fences around interesting and unusual points of interest throughout the city of Dublin.
This is a discovery feature in that you will only find these places if you stumble upon them as you walk around the city. It added some “gamification” and some fun to an already very functional application.
