Audio Walking Trail Launched For Dungarvan, Co. Waterford
This audio trail has been produced by Waterford County Museum in co-operation with rememberwhen.ie (a Dungarvan company that specialises in producing DVD slide shows for special occasions and recording oral histories) and local volunteers who gave their time freely so that you can enjoy our town's history. The iPhone version of the Dungarvan Heritage Audio Tour costs 79 cent, it is available now via the App Store.
Free Podcast Version For MP3 Players, Android And Other Smartphones
A free version of the tour is currently being prepared. This podcast will not feature the GPS system on the app or the photos. We have prepared a free downloadable map to accompany this tour. The advantage of the free tour is that it will play on all smart phones (Android etc.) and will also run on MP3 players. It will also function as an audio synopsis of Dungarvan history for those who cannot visit the town.
The official launch of the App will be happening during Heritage Week 20th to the 28th August. We will also announce other exciting museum developments at the launch. Full details of all those who worked on the app for the past 8 months or so will be appearing in the official press releases which will appear in the local media in, my thanks to them all and also Glen Barnes of mytoursapp.com for his help and co-operation.
Developing Low Cost Walking Tours Across Waterford
It is hoped to do a lecture in September for other heritage / community groups in Waterford to allow communities to develop their own own walking tour apps. We managed to develop this app at almost no cost due to the goodwill of a lot of people, hopefully the lessons we have learned can be used by other community groups.
Waterford County Museum is a voluntary organisation and a registered charity dedicated to preserving the history of County Waterford. You can see screenshots from the app on iTunes / App Store.
