fun field tests @ bradford beach

What I loved about the Water Story MKE app today was the richness of the stories in the videos.

We thought this was a really fun game and a great way to see Lake Michigan from another perspective.

Reflo's app, Water Story MKE, is currently being field-tested. If you would like to help beta-test the app and provide feedback to make it better, drop us a note through the form at the bottom of this page.

On Aug. 27, 2016, we held the first "sneak peek" field-test of Water Story MKE at Bradford Beach. On Sept. 12, 2016, Reflo hosted another field-test at the beach, sharing the app with a group of 20 young adults from Israel and Poland who traveled to Milwaukee through an Amitim exchange program. On Nov. 16, 2016, we shared the app with environmental educators from Riveredge Nature Center.

Bradford Beach is the pilot of our five pilot sites, featuring a premium amount of content--enough to engage a person for over two hours. Most of our field-testers self-directed their experience to be about 90 minutes. The app is most fun when a pair of people team up and use one phone. It's great fun for group outings like field trips and is appropriate for all ages. 

The best part of this was going with my friend and actually going into the water.

Stay tuned for details on the soft launch of the app at a water-themed Ex Fabula StorySlam on Feb. 21, 2017 at Lakefront Brewery. Then get ready for the summer 2017 Great Water Race to explore Water Story MKE all across our city and a chance to win awesome prizes.
