Rich McMillen Philly Bike Coalition Survey App Update #4

May 2015 —- We continue to build / test / triage our latest apps on iOS on Android. We've been experiencing challenges with our HTML form we're using to collect our actual rider survey data.

The next phase of the project is to develop a mobile app, All That Philly Jazz Walk, a self-guided walking tour that would start at 11th and Market streets, the former location of the Earle Theater, and end at Broad and Carpenter streets, the former location of Union Local 274, the black musicians union whose members included Dizzy Gillespie, John Coltrane and Nina Simone. I would like to launch a prototype during DesignPhiladelphia (October 2015).

If you're jazzed about jazz, cultural heritage preservation or mobile apps, please join the project team!
