Video highlights from the apps (36-minute version)

This montage provides a sampling of some of the video media in the Fort Vancouver Mobile apps. This app is much more than just a video distribution system, but these videos show the variety of content, from expositional segments to new journalism to those intended to prompt the development of interactive narratives.

Porting to the iPhone has begun ...

The free Fort Vancouver Mobile app is being built in Android's Java-based programming language, but with the funding provided by the Clark County Commissioners recently, through a Historical Promotion Grant, we also have begun porting the app into Apple's Objective C, for an iPhone/iPad version (Nick Hill has joined the team for this part of the production). Android and Apple mobile devices are the two leaders in the field right now in the United States. We expect to have both versions available to the public by the first special event of the tourist season, the Brigade Encampment.
