A new outdoor adventure app encourages girls to reach for the moon. MISHON is designed for Irish Girl Guides, who are on a mission to raise funds for their new National Training Centre in Tallaght. These industrious damsels are aiming to travel the distance from the Earth to the moon (363,104 kilometres), on foot, bicycle, swimming, surfing and kayaking. The app, designed by Kilkenny’s Brendan Morrissey, keeps track of their progress and chart their fund-raising, which aims to raise €1 for each one km covered.
The bureaucratic headache of running a small club could be solved through SUBSNINJA, an Irish app that makes minimal fuss out of admin. Jer Ryan, brains behind the project, has geared the app towards yoga, pilates, swimming, keep-fit, dance, gymnastics, martial arts, and other such small clubs. The app lets organisers make attendance records, keep lists of members, collect Stripe payments, and keep up with GDPR compliance.
Turn on, tune in, and drop out to GOLOUDS, digital audio awards for Irish podcasts.
