As you know, we’re constantly working on new features and improvements on the website of MIMOA. Some months ago, we asked our visitors to give some feedback on the idea of a mobile product for the architecture-interested-traveller. We asked you to place a comment with your wishes, and the result of the poll was clear: please provide us with an iPhone application!
This iPhone app will show all nearby architectural projects, and offers extra information on opening hours, how to get there, and of course photos and descriptions. MIMOA travels with you! A first impression on the left.
Many of you have been asking us by mail: what’s the status? So, here is an update ánd a request:
New iPhone apps are being developed as we speak (write) and can be used as a perfect marketing tool to reach the preferred audience. We still haven’t found the perfect architecture-travel-app that has great usability and up-to-date information. Also this one, by 29GPS Architecture, launched last month, is in our point of view, not exactly what you’re looking for. As can be read from the comments, also according to others: not yet the true travel mate. But, what it does show, is a lot of interest amongst possible users!
Here’s the update:
With the highly consistent and structured content of MIMOA, we can built this product fast and reasonably easy. The interface-design is done, graphics and technical development are covered. We’ve finished a demo and are now looking for a partner to help us conceive it. We are looking for a company or institution that wants to be the ‘launching sponsor’ of the MIMOA iPhone app. With, for instance, 12 months of exclusive advertising on the splash screen. And of course, the corresponding buzz on the MIMOA-website. Not to forget the eternal fame and acknowledgement from the architecture community.
At the moment, the website is not self-supporting, and our personal means are not sufficient. That is why we’re looking for a company or brand that is related to, and wants to expand their brand awareness amongst our visitors. An (international operating) architecture information centre, city-marketeer, publisher of (architecture, design or lifestyle) magazines, travel agency, or software producer, that is relevant for the MIMOA-users: architecture lovers and travelers.
Here’s the request:
If you know anyone working with a company or brand, that fits this description, and might be interested to sponsor the MIMOA iPhone app, please let us know, and help us get in contact.
If you are a keen iPhone user, and if you’re interested, we can send you a link to download the demo to get a good idea of what such a product can do for the promotion of the sponsor.
To get more information about the demo version of the app, the estimated costs, and possible cooperation, you can contact us by email. For any general feedback, ideas, support, or further questions, place a comment.
We would love to hear from you.
