BaladoDiscovery is a L’Aire de jeu inc. production that has financial support from the Government of Canada (Canada Interactive Fund).
BaladoDiscovery is a free application for the iPhone and iPad users and the Android phones and tablets users.
Devices providing full access to the tours :
iPhone: 3GS version and +
iPad: version 2 and +
iPod: version 3 and +
Android phones: the vast majority of models
Android tablets: the vast majority of models
Access to the GPS in “preload” mode (without Internet)
All of the devices above allow accessing the tours with no 3G Internet connexion in the field (“preload” mode). However, the basic iPad (Wi-Fi) and the iPod don’t allow tracking the user’s location by GPS. The other devices all allow to track the user’s location according to the routes and the points of interest.
To the application users on the field
To the tours and themes creators
L’Aire de jeu is a non-profit organization located in Quebec. Its mission consists of creating and broadcasting film, theatrical and multimedia productions; allowing the community to be the main beneficiary; creating and broadcasting regional and national productions, for cultural entertainment purposes, in which artists are involved; making these productions available to a wide audience and connecting with other stakeholders of the arts and media community in order to combine the different disciplines and styles.
With this aim in mind, L’Aire de jeu brought BaladoDiscovery. This project is available for free to the majority of smart devices users (iPhone, iPad, Android tablets and Android phones).
Cinax inc. provides development services and maintenance of the application and also provides services to customers of the creation module that allows you to create and offer tours to visitors.
