The 3 major platforms are supported.

Your own custom map

One of the app’s features we gladly put on this list. A custom designed GPS accurate map of the festival grounds fully functioning offline. Festival attendants can see their own location, pinpoint their points of interest (eg location of their tent) and share all of that with their friends. It’s like we reinvented Google Maps just for music festivals :)

We are able to easily integrate partner brand content and functionality to extend festival experience and customer relationships in a nonintrusive way.

About

Appmiral started as one of the first lab projects at Appstrakt, somewhere early 2010. Why experiment with music festival applications? Because we’re proud citizens of Belgium, famous for hosting some of the world’s largest and leading music festivals like Rock Werchter, Tomorrowland, I Love Techno,…That’s why we made it our duty, as proud and loyal citizens of “The Land of the Music Festivals” to make our festival apps at least equally known.

We envisioned a product as a service that would be a worthy replacement to the competing hybrid / web tech driven festival app solutions already available in the market. Why music festivals only? Because we wanted to focus and become the best.

We initially started building a set of dedicated native frameworks to support all relevant mobile platforms such as: iOS, Android, Blackberry, Symbian, Windows Mobile 6.5 and Windows Phone 7 & 8. All from the ground up and led by 3 key drivers:

Optimal user experience

We explicitly choose native development to get optimal app performance and to focus on sticking to the different Operating System methodologies, standards and user conventions.

Customizability

From a production point of view, nearly all music festivals are the same. The distinction can be found in their identity, look & feel and the tone of voice used in their communication. That’s not different with the featureset of their applications. They all have the same content and functionality, but the look & feel needs to be adjusted to the look & feel of the festival.

Modularity

Existing functionalities can easily be added and removed from the applications. Festival specific content and functionality can easily be added without touching the core of the framework.

Currently, driven by market evolution and the irrelevance of some of the previous platforms, we only keep supporting iOS, Android and Windows Phone.

In 2011 Appmiral evolved to a separate company. It is a joint venture with Zanzibar, a bunch of likeminded people with tons of experience working within the international music festival ecosystem.
