You’ll remember Theo, the first teen TechResort is supporting. He chose to build an Android app to show great Eastbourne events on TVs around the town.
Theo’s been going great guns and today saw the first public beta of his work. The What’s on app is now installed at the Devonshire Park Hotel opposite the Towner gallery and guests are being asked for feedback.
The screen will be place for two weeks and Theo will be updating the app during and after the trial based on the responses he receives.
Thanks to the magic of Google Play, Theo can update the app remotely. He uploads changes from home and the app in the hotel will update automatically. Nice work.
Can you help?
We’d like to test the app in more locations around town and you may have an ideal spot. We’re looking for the following:
- Decent sized modern TV (with HDMI) in a public location
- Wi-Fi access
- We’ll bring the rest
If you run a hotel, a community centre, a town centre shop or anywhere else where plenty of people visit we’d love to hear from you. You don’t have to do anything other than turn your TV on in the morning. Theo will do the rest.
A few thanks
Plenty of people have helped us get this far. Our particular thanks go to:
- The Network Factory for hosting Theo’s app
- Hugh at the Devonshire Park Hotel for seeing the potential and providing a great test venue
- Donna Comerford for introducing us to Theo in the first place
