Porto is the second biggest city in Portugal and, while walking downtown, you’ll see it’s filled with live, with both locals and tourists walking in what has been described as one of the most exciting destinations in Europe. While wondering in Porto’s streets, you will walk by thousands of shops, you’ll notice many, you’ll enter some. But you will inevitably miss out on many hidden gems and interesting experiences.
What if you could have a selection of the city’s top shops at the palm of your hand, curated by experts? What if you could filter by interests / themes, create your own itineraries or go on pre-made thematic itineraries?
Not enough? How about being able to use AR to easily see the stores around you, with its info and distance to where you are standing? Or even benefit from temporary and geo-referenced promotions?
That’s what we did for Porto’s town hall and, of course, Porto’s inhabitants and tourists.
“The best of Porto’s street commerce in your own smartphone.”
The Shop in Porto app is proof of the versatility of the X-Plora framework, which is perfectly suited to present geo-referenced content to users, no matter the dimension of the space: from a small venue to a large city.
