Europeana has just launched its first free iPad app. 'Europeana Open
Culture' introduces the public to hand-picked and beautiful collections
from some of Europe's top institutions, and allows people to explore,
share and comment on them. Designed by Glimworm IT during a Europeana
hackathon, the app provides an easy introduction to Europe's glorious
cultural treasury through five specially curated themes: Maps and Plans,
Treasures of Art, Treasures of the Past, Treasures of Nature, and Images
of the Past.
The 350,000 images available through the app are either in the public
domain or are openly licensed which means they can be used for any
purpose, like in a school project or a thesis, or in a presentation to
your local history society, or on blogs, Wikipedia, or even
commercially. What's more, the app is built on the Muse open source
platform <http://muse-opensource.org/> developed by Glimworm IT. The
code behind the app is available on GitHub repository
<https://github.com/europeana/openculture/wiki> and others can
experiment with it and develop it as they choose (for instance, to
create an Android version).
Download the app from iTunes and let use know about your comments or any
further code developments at api at europeana.eu.
