The Brick Store Museum in Kennebunk, Maine, recently completed work on a new smartphone app (available on both iPhone and Android). The Museum teamed with local design firm Dietz Associates to produce the “History Hopper,” a map-based app in which users can learn about historical events, people and places based on their location. Nearly 100 points of interest have been loaded onto the app, containing text, digitized archival materials, photos of museum objects, and short videos. The Museum offers the app for free.
