I worked on the Contiki Shout application as one of my first projects for Hi Mum! Said Dad and we produced the application for iPhone, iPad and Android. The Contiki application provides passengers with tools that Organise, Augment and Share the Contiki experience; promoting the brand and further cementing Contiki’s position as the world’s number 1 travel company for 18-35 year olds. Highly collaborative tools, such as a social travel book help disseminate the Contiki message; while useful utilities such as the OCR translator and location based travel tips help travellers on the road.
My role on the project was to take the already existing iPhone application and manage the production of the same app for iPad and Android, as well as updating the existing iPhone app with new features and improvements. Since it’s launch the application has gone on to win a SMITTY (Social Media in Travel + Tourism Awards) and an FWA award.
