Tiree Mobile Archive

You can install the Tiree Moble Archive website/app on your smartphone, iPad or even laptop. The interactive map has historical information arranged by major sites, and Gaelic names for key features so you can practice your Gaelic! In addition, the main tourist locations are marked and the map can track your location on Tiree, so it acts as a mini-sat-nav.

To view the app in the web browser of your phone or pad[1], simply enter this address http://whereweare.org/tiree/rel1/m or click this link if you are already viewing on your phone.

There is help available on the app, accessible through the main menu. However, if you are connected with a larger screen, you may find it easier to look at "How to use the Tiree Map", which takes you through the main features of the app with screenshots.

The web app should continue to run even when you are no longer connected to the wireless or mobile network (important on Tiree beaches!). Alternatively this is how to install it as an app on Android ("Add shortcut to Home") or iPhone ("Add to Home Screen").

If you are on a laptop or desktop machine, you can see how the app behaves using the simulator[2] to the right. Simply pull the slider across with your mouse and the app starts.

This is an early version of a mobile application being developed for An Iodhlann Tiree's Historical Centre, funded by the Scottish Digital Research and Development Fund for Arts and Culture.
