Point Guide: About the App

Updated: Jun 18, 2021

Earlier this year, I begun developing a Glideapp named Point Guide, as a way to challenge myself and develop my skillset with Glide. I'm pleased to announce that Point Guide is now live - so let's dive in and check out how it works.

If you missed the original blog post about my journey with Glideapps, check it out here.

What is Point Guide?

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.

Why build Point Guide?

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.

How did I launch it?

To compliment the launch of Point Guide, I developed a bespoke micro-site using 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. Check it out above, or by clicking here.
