Digital agency, Rokk Media, based in Exeter, have created Animated Exeter's very own FREE iPhone, Ipod and iPad app to accompany the annual Animated Exeter Festival held on February 10th to 22nd.
The app provides an easy and engaging guide to events throughout the festival and beyond, but the real appeal is the smart design and the addition of animated effects to make it a fun experience to use.
Susannah Shaw, Festival Director, is delighted by the massive interest the app is generating, “Having our own dedicated app gives a terrific boost to marketing our festival, specially one that is this easy to use. Creating relationships with and getting the support of local businesses like Rokk Media are vital to the success of the 2014 festival and the future of Animated Exeter.”
