August Press Release
Digital Motion Workshop is super excited to launch Guernsey’s first geo-location Augmented Reality App for the iPhone called AR Guernsey.
App Creator, Aaron Smillie - “I built this free app for locals and visitors to explore our beautiful beaches through a different kind of lens.
If you download the app then head to Vazon, Cobo, L’Eree, L’Ancresse or Pembroke beach you can discover a secret world filled with giant hot air balloons and dragons flying around our beaches. Every 3 months I’ll be updating those scenes with new and exciting creatures and treasure hunts."
Organisations can support this project by sponsoring a beach for a 3 month period. We’d like to thank Polygon Collective, Vantage Insurance and Edease for supporting us in our launch.
We’ll be releasing an Android version of this app once we get feedback from Apple users.

Organisations have seen the brand value of these experiences and purchased media space at each location. For ARGuernsey this was how we kept the app free for its users.
We want this app to be as bug free as possible so if you experience any problems people let use know and we'll do our best to fix it. Please title your message "Found a bug".
