The Office Garage Series explores Prague through apps

Apr 9, 2014

First it was Hong Kong; now it’s Prague. Yes, Jeremy Chapman has a tough job hopping from one international location to another, but somebody has to do it. Watch the video above as Chapman catches up with people from organizations that use Office 365, then uses customs apps to help him navigate the historic city and its landmarks in only six hours.

Chapman uses the City Tour apps for Office to plot his course. (Start watching this part of the trip at 5:30 minutes into the video.) The apps were developed to dynamically serve as his tour guide to get around Prague using services from Wikipedia, Bing Maps, Bing Images and Office 365 calendaring to plan Chapman’s trip route. Then he used both an iPhone and Windows tablet to find his way on foot, and check in at each stop.

Stay tuned for more from the Garage Series. Next up on the road trip tour is Dubai.
