Creativity From a Kitchen Table
I am a person who loves history. I also love rural Alberta. I think it’s important people know the story of how this app was created. As a housewife, with zero experience I created this app from my kitchen table with other volunteers. The concept has grown to be a collaboration of organizations and individuals across the province to supply the travelling public with attractions, services, businesses and heritage sites and stories.
The app has grown to be Alberta wide, all accomplished with a lack of funding, a lot of hard work, and a growing network of alliances. We will continue to grow and improve it.
The sign up questions will be minimal in the next version. We simply didn’t know any better. The user name and email create your personal list of we where you’ve been or whom you’ve interacted with. The rest of the questions can be fudged.
Great potential - terrible app
I was super excited for this app, I think the idea is great. However the user interface is bright, tacky, and distracting, the app itself is extremely slow, it sometimes shows the museum near my house and sometimes does not. Not user friendly at all. I recommend having some young people work on the app to help work out the bugs and make it more user friendly. Also, no one wants to take selfies at a museum and post them on your app for everyone to see.
I agree so disappointed. Data collection is the main aim here. The sneak peek I got of the app was UGLY, did not seem user friendly.
