Get an overview of what the CampusGuide app will do along with planned beacon interaction points and deployment options.
- The app that we're going to be working with…in this chapter is called Campus Guide…and its purpose is to give people who arrive on campus…a whole slew of information that they may need,…right at their finger tips.…The app has sections for things like…a campus map, this week's activities,…a classified section, and even a message board.…Now note that the project that we're working on…is only the shell of an app.…None of these functions currently exist in the app…but they're their to give us the feel of an app…that's currently in production.…By all measures you can feel free…to implement those functions if you like at a later point…but they're currently beyond the scope of this lesson.…
So what we'd like to do…is add some additional functionality to our app.…First, in our app we have a menu item for campus information…and when a user taps on this item it brings them to a page…that gives them some important campus information.…What we'd like to do is detect…for when a user arrives on campus…and once they do we'll send them a notification…
