Audio Guides

Create new audio guides, or adapt an existing audio tour. Situate works offline so there are no problems streaming content.

Walking Trails

Great for walking tours. Create trail maps, and trigger content when users come within a specified radius of a GPS hot spot. 

Events Apps


Help visitors orientate around an unfamiliar location and provide timetables and details. Send notifications to users at the event.


Works Offline

Content is downloaded to the user’s device and thereafter doesn’t require an internet connection to work. 

Indefinite App Lifetime

You keep the content up to date and we make sure the technology stays compatible with new operating system versions and devices.

Trigger Content

Content is triggered when a user comes within range of a location trigger - which can be iBeacons or GPS coordinates.


Visitor Flow Data

The app captures location data that provides a rich picture of how visitors are using the venue.


Create versions of your app for different audiences: languages, visitors with accessibility needs, different themes.


Broadcast Messages

Send announcements to users who have installed your app – even targeting visitors currently in your venue.

Situate allows me as Creative Director to add another layer to the viewer’s experience of gallery visits. Situate is both there and not there and allows viewers the option to access additional information without it being imposed upon them and allows curators to reveal another layer without having to be be literal or interpretive.

iBeacon Technology

You do not need iBeacons in order to offer Situate to your visitors. Without iBeacons visitors can manually navigate through your content. However, iBeacons add that element of ‘magic’. Visitors are automatically shown relevant content as they move around your physical space.

The iBeacon hardware is very simple to install. There is no requirement for any wiring, external power or network/wi-fi connection. Simply stick them to the wall or ceiling – and just twist to remove.
