Easy-to-use and Attractive Apps
Click on one of the words below to learn more about how it works.
The Heart of the App
The app is made up of guides, which in turn are made up of locations.
Easy to navigate list of guides
Each guide has a presentation page with images and text
Each location in the guide can include text, images (with image captions), audio, video and 360° content
Content can be added in any language
Navigate With Ease
GPS is built into the app. Using GPS visitors can see their position on the map and navigate the area.
GPS works in the background and can notify visitors when they have arrived at a location
Set an individual trigger distance for each location’s GPS notification
Where’s the Nearest Bathroom?
Info pins are information points that can be placed on the map.
Show where e.g. cafés, bathrooms and attractions are located
Add new categories of info pins, specific to your app
Hide/show different info pin categories using menu
No Wifi? No Problem
When a user starts a guide, that specific guide is downloaded to the smartphone and stored for offline use
Use the app offline
Users can remove guides when no longer needed to save space on their phones
When the app is updated users get a notification and can download the new content
Find What You Are Looking For
There is a search function available for the app. Users type what they are looking for into the search field and the results appear in a list. From there they can click on a result and open a guide or location.
Keep Track of Fun Things
An event calendar is a great way to let visitors know what is going on in the area.
Notify visitors when something is happening
Update the calendar automatically via existing API
A User-friendly Experience
An initial category page is a way to divide the app into sections such as events, map and guides. In this way the experience becomes more user-friendly and structured.
Spark Engagement With A Quiz
It is possible to add a quiz to the guides in the app. There is one multiple choice question per location and the user can compete against other players.
Enhance Reality With AR
In its simplest form AR, augmented reality, means scanning something in your environment using the smartphone’s camera in order to trigger specific content in the app such as an image, 3D model or video. One way to use this technology is to show how an environment looked in a different era. Contact us for more info and examples.
Brand Your App, Make It Your Own
The app offers many possibilities of branding such as adding a logo, choosing colours etc. Give visitors a good impression, create familiarity and style your app according to your graphic profile.

Choose splash and loading screens
Present the App or Organisation
Use the ‘about page’ to present the app or the organisation behind it.

Make Changes Easily
When you become an OnSpotStory client, we’ll provide you with a login and password for the OnSpotStory CMS (content management system). This tool allows you to easily upload and edit all the information in your guides using your own computer.
Design options to customize your app
Add info pins to the map
Add text in any language
When changes are made users are notified that new content is available
Get To Know Your Visitors
We know that it is important to gain insight into visitor behaviour. When you become an OnSpotStory customer you receive a link to detailed statistics, showing you how the app is being used.
Number of visitors and time of visit
Number of visitors per guide and location
Number of visitors per language and country
Number of downloads per operating system
We understand how important it is that technical solutions can both be built upon and are easy to integrate with existing systems. For this reason our modules are made so that they can be connected with existing APIs. One example of this is our event calendar.
Use Behavioural Principles to Improve the Experience
Our gamification module enables you to add widgets such as ‘Acheivements’ or ‘Missions’ to the app. In this way you create incentive that helps users invest more in your product.
Direct Communication With Vistiors
Using push notifications you can send messages to app users, for example letting them know about an event.
Notify users within a specific geographic area.
Create segments to send notifications to different user types.
Create reoccurring notifications.
Devices for Rent (iPods)
iPods replace the traditional audio guide devices. Visitors can enjoy your guides without having to download an app or use their own mobile phone.
Lock the device to only use your app.
Usable without a wifi connection.
Where The Magic Happens
Our experience is that content can be the trickiest and most time consuming part of making an app. It is also the most fun and it is what makes the experience truly valuable to the visitor. If you would like any assistance with content creation along the way, we are here to help. We also offer content packages. Get in touch for more info.
