Explore Austin through stories!
The Asunder app links stories to real-world Austin locations. Asunder invites you to get out, get walking, and experience the city anew. The stories compel you to take a closer look, traverse an unfamiliar street, stroll instead of rush, tune in instead of out.
You may have done an audio tour of a city before—bland, canned, generic, safe, touristy fare. This ain’t that. Asunder stories are sharp and distinctive. Think Hunter S. Thompson not Mister Rogers.
And Asunder stories don’t stop at audio narration. They throw at you all a smartphone can—videos, images, music, sound effects, and augmented reality. Whatever it takes to knock your socks off.
A map guides you from one story spot to another. You’ll get entranced but not lost. Once you arrive at your destination, the app notifies you that a new part of the story is available. Launch it with a simple swipe. Boom.
