Poetic Places Fredericton

Poetic Places Fredericton is a fun, interactive app for Android devices which uses push notifications to let the user know when they have stumbled across a location in Fredericton which has inspired, or is closely related to, a poem written by a local poet. The app is designed to encourage users to get out and explore the capital city, but the poems can be accessed and enjoyed at any time. We also provide a short biography and selected bibliography for each poet, as well as information about the locations and what they have to offer. Fredericton is known across Canada as the Poet’s Corner due to its rich literary history, and the city claims such prestigious names as Bliss Carman, M. Travis Lane, and Sheree Fitch. The PPF app has four major sections: Home, Poems, Poets, and Places. There is also an About Us page to introduce the developers of the app and provide contact information, and a Settings page.
