Szeged is a city rich in Jewish heritage: in the city center you can find many Jewish monuments, here is the second largest synagogue in the country, and you can also visit the Israelite tomb garden. Our customers wanted to orient the users in the many sights, as well as to provide deeper knowledge about the Jewish people, buildings and historical events of Szeged. To do this, we created a mobile application with three function groups.
One unit of the application functions is the official mobile application of the Szeged Synagogue. We used iBeacon indoor navigation technology inside the building - so it is also an exhibition guide - which has been supplemented with an audioguide option. Highlights of the Synagogue are stained glass windows, so a treasure hunt game can be found on the selected custom window based on the pattern shown by the application. In addition, moving through the building, the app constantly accompanies the attractions with information and additional images.
In addition to learning about the Synagogue, a cityviewer of various monuments will also help to acquire interesting informations. Iconic buildings appear in 3D on a digital map, making it easy to plan your route between attractions. Entering the 100-meter radius of the heritage, the app turns green and offers both effective text and audioguide format.
The third unit of our development is a function to support the exploration and traversal of the Israelite tomb garden, which marks the most significant tombstones on a map, as well as providing a wealth of information about the cemetery itself and the famous Jews buried there. All elements of the application are available in Hungarian, English, Romanian and Serbian. The project is an ideal example of a well-functioning team work, as in addition to the work of our developers, the customer provided the textual content in a ready-made, complex form, whose narratives for the audioguide were created by our film team.
