About the Project

Point Guide is a responsive mobile app developed in GlideApps, encouraging the local community to explore the neighbourhood. Point Guide is a community-powered index designed to connect the local community by providing locals with a source of information from local places to eat out, businesses, and even a source of recreation through the Point Challenge.

I'm a member of many local community Facebook groups. Over a period of time, I noticed there were a lot of posts by members asking for recommendations of places to eat, dentists, places to explore and more.

 

So, as non-essential businesses began to shut down and social distancing was implemented to fight against COVID-19 in March 2020, I saw the opportunity to use my newly found free time and expertise using Glideapps - to support the local community with a one-stop-shop place of information.

To compliment the launch of Point Guide, I developed a bespoke micro-site using Landen.io which serves to facilitate the on-boarding experience of the app. The micro-site also hosts important information such as the privacy policy, terms and conditions and more. Furthermore, I developed a short (1 min) trailer which could be used across social media platforms to promote, engage and spark a sense of curiosity about the app.
