Mobitel Launches ‘Heritage SL’ app for Archaeology Department
Mobitel partnered with the Department of Archaeology to launch the ‘Heritage SL’ app that would provide free access for the public to explore Sri Lankan archaeology on their phones. The location-based app was designed by Mobitel and launched for the 125th anniversary of the Department of Archaeology.
The app provides detailed information on archaeological locations and artifacts which cannot be found through traditional research. The app will also enable the Department of Archaeology to promote national heritage and act as a medium of communication that can be used for engagement or publication.
In future the app will be expanded to act as a publishing platform while also providing localised notifications when predetermined geographical locations are reached.
The free app can be downloaded off Google Play or the App Store.
