Students at Boston College have developed an interactive iPhone app called Joyceways that allows the user to trace the footsteps of Leopold Bloom and Stephen Dedalus through Dublin. As the user follows Bloom and Stephen’s paths, photographs, annotations, and quotations from Ulysses appear, linking the location with the text.  After two years of development, the app is set to launch on June 16th, the 2012 Bloomsday.  The project has been funded using Kickstarter, a website that allows projects to raise money by reaching out to donors through the internet.  Joyceways was so popular that it exceeded its goal of $9,000.  With the app’s launch less than a month away, the developers are now looking to spread the word.  Here is a link to their website, and they can be found on Facebook and Twitter.
