Port Hope Mobile App

Port Hope in southern Ontario was looking for an innovative way to engage with tourists. We partnered with the municipality to produce a tourism app utilizing Beacons to assist tourists visiting Port Hope by providing interactive guided tours.

Using a the React framework, we built a native mobile application for both Android and iPhone platforms. The app uses Google Places to integrate the towns business listings so visitors can navigate and search by category, view details, comments, and reviews.

Beacons were mounted all over the town indoors and outdoors at unique points of interest. The app communicates with the Beacons via Bluetooth when in proximity and provide users with a guided tour of Port Hope.

Finally, a main focal point is the Ganaraska River that runs through the town. A live fish camera feed is available only through the app creating a unique experience of the many fish that populate the river.
