Festival brings in mobile App
Bruce Chimani Showbiz Correspondent
The Intwasa Arts Festival has scored a digital first by introducing an App meant to equip festival goers with a map view of show venues and the festival programme.
Designed and built by the WETU Collective, the Intwasa App can be downloaded on Google Play or by visiting www.bit.ly/intwasafestapp. App developer, Babusi Nyoni who is also the co-founder of WETU said the App was convenient as users could also track real-time social media conversations related to Intwasa, using the festivals hashtags and key words.
“It’s home to more information than just events and has a cool photobooth feature that allows users to take pictures of their festival experience with a tag. Users are also able to click on an event listing for full event details including dates and times, accessibility information with an option to share an event with your friends.”
