– Also in June we got great news. We were selected to participate in the StartupChile program (among the best 100 out of 1570 applicants) – receiving 40k USD equity free seed capital. So currently Attila and Adrienn are in Chile, while Krisztian, Csaba and Sean work from Europe.

– We shipped our first B2B product to Waterways Ireland’s Lakelands Initiative. We created treasure trails in 10 of their touristic locations, in cooperation with heritage officers – resulting in true quality content. They are really satisfied with it, we are already negotiating further cooperation.

– We shot a pilot video in Berlin, you can check it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_uTy-8X0khE

It was an experiment, we collected loads of feedback about it, and now we are planning an even better one.

– Created a family based treasure trail in cooperation with the Budapest Zoo.

– We created two touristic demo trails in Barcelona:

– We launched the public beta on Android too, with many social features:
– We submitted Sighter for the ‘Appra magyar’ competition:
