The Brontë Parsonage Museum has launched a new app. It's only available for IOS users  (no plans for an Android release as far as we know).
Brontë Parsonage Museum
By Heritage Interactive Ltd
This app is designed for both iPhone and iPad
Category: Education
Released: Aug 14, 2014
Version: 1.0
Size: 77.6 MB

Compatibility: Requires iOS 4.3 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.

A virtual tour of the Brontë Parsonage Museum at Haworth, home of the world’s most famous literary family. The rooms once used by the Brontës have been historically and scientifically refurbished and the tour provides information about the new decorative scheme as well as the family’s furniture, clothes and personal possessions which are displayed throughout the house.
Basically the app gives the same information as the virtual tour touch screen kiosks that have been installed at the Brontë Parsonage itself:
We [Heritage Interactive Ltd] developed the virtual tour to give visitors extra insight into the lives of the Brontë family. It contains facts aimed at both adults and children, accompanied by high resolution images of the rooms and artefacts.
The tour is available at the museum via two touch screen kiosks, iPad and iPhone apps were also developed to allow greater access to the information. The apps are available on the app store, with proceeds going to the museum.
The information is pretty basic but with some interesting content particularly concerning the recent redecoration. Furthermore, the Keeper icon hides some fun facts for the young ones. The app is strictly BPM-centered (no information about books or literature).
