With the team at Emberex, I worked with a local entrepreneur and train enthusiast to create Clackety, an iOS app that notifies users when heritage trains are near their current location.

The app also gives users the ability to report sightings and share them with other users.

Existing articles and photos were used to show what caliber of content the magazine would feature.
