A good day rock climbing, a year ago aproximately, the idea of developing this project came up. The idea was clear to be good, we trusted in it, but needed economic help for its development. After a long search of financial sources, visiting sponsors, Partners and Business angels; we ran into some public help given away by the Junta de Extremadura for promoting sports in the country side through it’s gabinete de Iniciativa Joven. We found those public helps to fit perfectly with our project. We applied for them and after a long wait, they granted it to us.
Developing this project has been a very richening experience. For starters, its a in-house idea, which has given us a total creative and technical freedom that would have been difficult to reach under a regular client’s requirements. We have been able to develop the project reaching the exact result we wanted.
It’s a sport climbing app for all climbing places of Extremadura. It works as an interactive guide. Fans of this sport can know de position of every climbing area of this community, its sectors, parkings and routes; it also gives information of each area and offers GPS navigation. The app includes information on each area, route grades and lengths. It allows users to post comments on routes as well as logging each user’s climbed and favorite routes. The star functionality is maybe the augmented reality.
Being an app which is to be used on a mouintain eviroment, it does not require Internet connection for it’s correct use, the app includes all the maps, sky photos and sector markup.
There’s no other app like this in the virtual markets; which makes, us as a bussiness and Extremadura as a region, in pioneers of this field.
