Experiencing the poems
We overcame a number of obstacles due to the remoteness and lack of mobile service at the proposed sites in the park. This required us to spend a lot of time out in the park testing and researching locations, leading to the development of a bespoke solution that did not rely on mobile data. This allowed us to provide a fail-safe, consistent experience to users and deliver an accurate way of determining location.
To ensure the poems can only be listened to at the locations themselves, we built functionality into the app that locks content once a user has left a location. This allowed us to meet Simon Armitage’s requirement that poems only be experienced at the sites they were written about.
