Interactive “What’s On” App for Museum
Click Innovated developed an interactive “What’s On” app for the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) as their winning 24 hour coding competition entry.

The app has interactive map animations, the ability to find your current location, and the events are powered by Google Calendar.
PhoneGap (Cordova) is used to compile the app natively for iPad and Android tablet devices, with the possibility of adding additional targets such as BlackBerry and Windows Phone in the future.
The responsive design means it will automatically fit the screen of upcoming new tablet sizes such as the iPad Mini and the Google Nexus 10. There is also support for a “Kiosk” mode, which allows the app to be run within various parts of the museum, being powered by the same Google Calendar data.
Users of the app will be able to find events happening in various buildings and areas of the museum and add them to their personal day planner, to plan their day efficiently and also allow MOSI to determine which events are most popular.
We hope to develop this app further with MOSI and release it on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
