The Fringefest.ca website and iphone app were created by Gregg and Angella Coppen of iaminawe as an entry into the Apps4Edmonton competition being held in partnership with The City of Edmonton. The Edmonton Fringe Festival is North Americas largest & longest running theatre festival with over 160 productions, 1,200 performances and 39 venues this year. The app aims to make sure that you dont miss out on anything by helping you to plan your festival, write and read reviews on what shows are popular and access useful maps and information.
We used a combination of open source tools including Drupal to pull the data feeds and build the web app at Fringefest.ca and then Titanium to code and compile the i-phone app to interact with it.
The web and mobile app allow visitors to the Fringe to view a full schedule and directory of shows and allows them to rated and reviewed by the community. They are also packed with interactive maps, useful info, contact info and tools to monitor the festival buzz.
We won the Official Fringe Special Distinction Award with our entry and the right to use the official wordmark on our application which was awesome.
