Ballet Austin | Mobile App launch – and it’s free!
Ballet Austin has launched an App for smartphones – it’s compatible with iPod Touch, iPad & iPhone as long as they are iOS 4.0 or later. Released on February 3rd, the App is sizeable if you already have a lot of data on your phone – at 16.2mb.
You get a pictorial overview of the latest season, with a scrollable screen to show you more related background information and production credits. There’s a neat little slot for ‘additional information’ giving you some added bites of backstage knowledge.
Scrolling at the bottom of the Season section, there are beautiful production photos (there is also a gallery section), again with full credits.
There’s a Newsfeed (blog and twitter feed), all with easy to navigate features and crucially on a small screen - easy on the eye to read, map and parking section, Get tickets, Videos (hosted on YouTube), and a section about the company.
The bottom of the screen shows any new information that’s been added, and all the way through, the elegant design of light blue arrows on a black background with white font makes it really easy to skip around the App and find what you are looking for – and delve into something you weren’t expecting!
