Add a layer of interactive content to your places and spaces
Choose from a number of different map types to include in your app. Upload any map as an image, then add tappable hotspots to allow users to find relevant content. Or, create a native map (see screenshot) and add pinpoints for one-tap navigation to location-specific information.
Upload amazing 360° photos to your app using the 'Panorama' card template, then overlay with tappable hotspots to link to relevant content in the app (we use the brilliant Theta 360 camera). Tip: Link one panorama card to another using hotspots so you can achieve a 'Streetview' style virtual experience.National Botanic Gardens example
Choose from a selection of card cover layouts to create different effects, including full bleed, Info, Avatar and List. Others like Discovery Grid (see screenshot) can be used to present your content in categories using icons, whilst Carousel lets users scroll smoothly from left and right through a colection of cards to find what they want.
Add some fun interaction to your app! Create an image with transparent areas and upload it to the 'Selfie' card template. When a user taps on the card in the app they will be prompted to take a selfie, and to line up their photo with your image. Perfect for encouraging sharing on social networks!
Our CMS lets you do some clever things with images. Use the 'Before/After' card to let users scroll smoothly between two images for a before/after effect. Or use the 'Reveal' card to let them rub away a top image to reveal another. You can also upload other HTML5 widgets, including Bookry widgets.See how Cadw used Before & After
Use the 'Discovery Grid' option to link a collection of cards together and create a Treasure Hunt. E.g. find these 6 object in the building or, solve these 6 clues to complete the challenge. You can also pin your clues to GPS and beacon locations, so that they are only unlocked when nearby.
Locly Native has different options for bundling content. You can include all your items in the app, or if this grows to be too big, you can include a smaller set of content and have the remainder streamed on-demand - useful for large videos for example. You can also mark these as optional bundles that the user can download on request and take with them. This gives you the best of both worlds - small app size, large library of content, and full off-line use.
Ensure that your app users are always up-to-date with your activities and never miss a thing! Locly supports both push notifications triggered by location/proximity, and those sent manually to all app users. These notification options are easily setup in the CMS.
