PLAI Festival Apps

PLAI is a multicultural festival that takes place every year, in the middle of September at Muzeului Satului Bănăţean from Timişoara, Romania. The festival is organized entirely by volunteers and we are happy to be a part of the team, doing what we know best: apps.

In 2013 we developed the iOS and Android apps for PLAI Festival. Since then we are updating the apps every year with new features and the festival info.

This year, we decided to re-create the apps in new, modern technology so we updated the design and functionalities of the app using React Native and Firebase.

Now, the apps have simplified tab navigation and trendy horizontal scrolls for the event categories and highlights. Events are organised into categories and days, plus, events and activities can now be marked as favourites.

Participants can also receive push notifications from the organisers and can read information about artists, the festival and browse the festival map.

The apps had all the related information about the festival. This way, the participants could easily access the festival program, read more info about the festival, tickets, camping, map and other info.

Also, the 2015 update of the apps consisted of a new home screen design, new set of app icons, and also updated sections and content.

A year later, in 2014, we redesigned the apps and rewrote them to be fully native. We simplified the menu and navigation in the apps so that the users could navigate easier. Also, we updated the apps with the latest details about the concerts, cultural events, workshops and tickets & schedule.

We helped the organizers by developing the official iPhone and Android apps. The apps’ role was to gather all the useful information about the festival in one place, at the fingertips of the participants.

This way, the participants could be easily informed before and during the event by just opening the app and looking at the details about the venue and the events, partners, cultural events, guests, tickets and most importantly, the daily schedule.
