Tipple is a mobile location-aware app software that can present users with audio or text content of books in situ. Tipple is currently being developed as a software suite to allow non-technical users to create their own mobile location-based apps.
The Tipple software suite has been adapted to provide apps for selected research projects:
The Manawanui Land Diversification app was developed in collaboration with the Manawanui Development Ltd Partnership and To Kahi Research Institute. This app has been designed as a digital footprint to template the current and emerging land diversification initiatives within Manawanui Development Limited Partnership, Ngāti Korokī-Kahukura and is inclusive of land and surrounding waters.
For detailed information, visit the Manawanui project page.
The Tipple software suite is used in a number of community projects:
The Hamilton Gardens app was developed in collaboration with the Hamilton Gardens and offers information about the themed gardens based on the location of the user. Users can continue walking through the gardens while the app reads the text aloud.
For detailed information, visit the Hamilton Gardens project page.
Typical location-based apps provide data to their users – for Catch a Carp we have reversed this process, making users the providers of data. The Catch-a-Carp app builds on our expertise with location-based apps gained in the Tipple project.
