Towns Through Times
Winner Apps for NSW compeition.
Offers a taste of NSW State Records’ photographic collection.
Shows images of the history of many Australian towns.
For people who desire to learn about Australia’s history, a mobile app displaying photos of historic landmarks and events would make it more interactive for viewers.
The Towns Through Time app allows users to examine a number of photographs of Australia’s history. The app uses Flicker API’s to retrieve images located close to the device so viewers may observe the history around them and links these with the Records NSW JSON database.
Praise for the app
The app was a competition winner and funded by the NSW Government’s Apps4NSW program.
