The Bolander Lifestyle and Property app now brings you their latest news at your fingertips. The app provides enriched multimedia, bookmarking capabilities, offline viewing and easy article sharing.
In this app, you also have access to two unique features, User Generated Content and Augmented Reality scanning capability.
What is User Generated Content (UGC)? --
You as a consumer can now submit stories and content, including videos, audio, images and GPS locations. You can become a journalist on the go! Your stories will be submitted to a secure dashboard, where the newspaper will monitor and review which content they can use.
What is Augmented Reality (AR)? --
An enhanced version of reality where live direct or indirect views of physical real-world environments are augmented with superimposed computer-generated images over a users view of the real-world, thus enhancing ones current perception of reality.
Look out for images in print with the Augmented Reality logo and scan the image for an exciting digital experience.
