Mediaeval St Andrews App


We are pleased to announce that the new Mediaeval St Andrews App, developed by several SAIMS researchers alongside members of the School of Computer Science is now available for Apple (iPad/iPhone) and on android.

The free app brings together a range of resources, research, films, audio interviews, images of objects and 3D digital reconstructions of 22 key sites of the medieval town, including brand new reconstructions of the Tolbooth, the West Port, StAndrews Castle and St Salvator’s College. The previous work of the Open Virtual Worlds group on St Andrews Cathedral is also included. It benefits from substantial donations from the National Library of Scotland, Historic Scotland, the University of StAndrews, Fife Council and the St Andrews Museum, amongst many others.  It can be used in St Andrews or remotely from anywhere in the world.

If you have an android phone or tablet, you can download the app here or access it directly in your app store.

If you have an iPad or iPhone you can download the iOS app here.

It is possible to get a flavour of the app (but unfortunately without many of the mobile app features) at the website.

The app will be added to and enhanced in future, with research tools, more content and new sites added throughout 2015.
