PopUp LvC

PopUp LvC  iOS App is an interactive guide for pop-up shops locations in the Cuijk and Boxmeer cities (“het Land van Cuijk”). The guide is based on the location detection by means of iBeacons.

The App helps to gather and browse information about the actually visited stores, while information is displayed according to the location.

 It’s essential that the user will receive a notification alert on approaching the pop-up shop, inviting the user to visit the store, even if the application is not running.

This requires continued use of location services running in the background. Please note, that running these services may dramatically decrease battery life.

From iOS 9.0 the ranging of beacons in the inactive state  of the application is not supported. While closing / killing (double Home+ drag away) of  the application, the user is warned by a notification, that no more messages will  be shown. (ver. 1.1)

This version of the App is designed for the Pop-up event LvC (Land van Cuijk), organized by the Young Talent Group. An event, with different participants, to increase the attractiveness of the cities  Boxmeer and Cuijk.

The App is built for iPhone, with iOS 7.1 or newer and requires Bluetooth (LE) switched on.  To detect a pop-up shop in the vicinity no Internet connection is needed, however it is necessary to receive an browse additional information about the participating shops.
