PlaceApp is a free iOS mobile app that allows users to receive location content published from PlaceConnect Location Content Server. PlaceApp utilizes a device’s geo-location or its proximity to an iBeacon to create new opportunities to engage an audience and receive targeted location-based content.

The free PlaceApp, in conjunction with PlaceConnect Server, Geo Pins and iBeacons provides a complete authoring and browsing environment that requires NO programming or special development expertise. Content authors can deliver targeted information to their clients, customers, visitors or employees, and also gain analytic knowledge critical to their success. For visitors, receiving custom messages and content by language, age, gender, role and custom selection offers a magical experience.
