Celebrate Bloomsday & James Joyce’s ‘Ulysses’ with a New App

Tomorrow is Bloomsday, the worldwide celebration of James Joyce’s novel, Ulysses. To help you celebrate, a group of Boston college students have built JoyceWays, a city guide app to Dublin based on the novel.

The iPhone app was formulated with university studies and designs from Irish software developer Big Top Multimedia. The literary tour app, which is part study guide, part tourist tool, goes live in the App Store today.

AppNewser has more: “It took almost three years for the students to build the app, which started as a Kickstarter project. And you can see why. It’s full of photos, literary criticism, cartoons and posters. It’s got 100 places to visit including 15 pubs.”It also has offline maps, real-time GPS tracking and four hours of spoken commentary.

The JoyceWays website explains their use of annotations: “At each point along the way you are provided with a carefully constructed explanatory annotation of the moment, that is both light and entertaining, yet informative and insightful. JoyceWays is not just your guide to the streets of Joyce’s Dublin, it is as much a guide to the complex layers of prose he presents us with.”
