Story Tour App
Myself and Ross Phelan came up with Ramble which is a story tour app used
to celebrate and explorer the stories of the people of your city. The content
consists of stories recorded by storytellers about interesting locations
anywhere across the world. Storytellers can record from any location with any
combination of four options - text, pictures, videos and sound – and can then
link either of those options to the story’s location. The app is called
‘RAMBLE’ and we see it as an application for both storytellers and explorers.
The explorers are essentially the visitors or residents in any location. They are
able to experience the stories which are uploaded on the app through the
eyes of the storytellers as they tour their location.
Ramble uses Location Aware Technology, which allows users to explore in
three ways. The users can get a notification when passing a location with a story
(Random Ramble) or are able to create or join routes and hear stories
specifically picked up by others (Routed Ramble). Users can also target
specific locations and specific stories and experience them independently
Users can set up their own profile, were they can access their own stories,
places, saved routes, their followers and people they follow. The user also
has a live timeline split into stories, places and routes.
Ramble brings story telling back to life.
