Sky Arts launches app providing location-specific culture facts

by -

Sky Arts has launched a new app for iPhones that offers users facts about key cultural figures, which are linked to a specific location.

The app means that whenever a person is near an area connected with a musician, filmmaker, actor, artist, dancer or singer they will receive a notification, which will provide a fact about the location’s link to that cultural figure. From this, images or related content will be made available on the iPhone.

Users are able to select the genre they are interested in, such as art, comedy, theatre, film or dance.

Jame Hunt, director of Sky Arts, said: “We have launched the Sky Arts app because we want everyone to enjoy moments of inspiration and now they can experience this content in situ at famous venues and places across the UK and Ireland.”
