The Omeka Everywhere Collection Viewer iOS application is part of a larger suite of tools that allow institutions to create a rich and accessible online presence and use the same content to offer visitors unique in-gallery and mobile experiences.

The Omeka Everywhere app uses the Omeka API to connect to online collections. Institutions can modify the Omeka Everywhere source code and easily create mobile apps that connect to their online collections.

App users can interact with collection items through sorting by keywords, zooming in on images, and from a learn more option that displays information on the flipside of each item. Users may also save favorites from the collection as they browse.

Omeka Everywhere is for museums, historical societies, special collections libraries, and anyone who is interested in extending their Omeka online collection to mobile users. In addition, the mobile application can be paired with a multitouch table or touch wall experience. This unique feature allows in-gallery visitors to view and seamlessly share collection items from the table instance to their personal devices.

The iOS application and touch screen application are open source and free. The applications can be modified to work with other Omeka collections or extended in other ways. The source code can be downloaded here:
