We are excited that Sunne kommun has decided to get an app. Sagolika Sunne sees this technology as a helping hand for visitors to find their way to the many gems it has to offer. Sunne is Selma Lagerlöf’s home region and there’s plenty to see and discover in the area. The app will make it easier for visitors to experience Sunne by implementing e.g. an event calendar and incorporating exciting stories about the region’s culture and nature.
The app will be launched in the spring of 2019. We look forward to getting to know Sunne and Selma better!

The Gotland Museum is the Mecca of Gotland’s cultural history. The museum recently launched a new app to complement their exhibitions. Henrik Ramberg, the Project Manager, tells us about their app aspirations: “We hope to lift stories and objects that for various reasons have ended up in the dark. An ambition we have is to link the stories with the physical locations on the island where the stories and objects come from”.
The Gotland Museum will have 10 OnSpotStory PLUS units to offer visitors. These are all-inclusive solutions that replace the traditional audio guide device with a modern smartphone that you can lend or rent to your visitors.
Making an audio guide has many components to it, from the nitty-gritty techy side of things, to the human beings and the stories they want to tell about a specific place or object.
Who we meet with and talk to has truly shaped OnSpotStory. That’s why in 2018 we decided to start a bitesize vlog/blog, introducing the people we meet and the places we’ve been. For us to remember and to share with you how it all comes together.
