We approached the project as we always do. Firstly, by producing a specification document, always ensuring lots of communication, having the occasional meeting and mostly by making sure that the app met all the objectives the client set. We believe by building a simple to use cross platform app Walkingworld can make their 1000’s of walks available to an even bigger audience and app will their service to now be used anywhere and by anyone.
The solution allows existing subscribers to access and save walks for use offline and allows Walkingworld to utilise another method to increase their customer base.
The app works by utilising a web service to push and pull all its data and a unique and bespoke offline mapping method for handling the display of OS maps.
This offline mapping method caches a map at various levels / zooms and allows the map to be assembled later and in real time on a users device, removing the need for an internet connection when navigating the map of the walk.
The app can display a users direction of travel and allows them to easily navigate between waypoints on a walk with associated information available for each of them.
These are the benefits to Walkingworld and the app users…
