It’s worth noting that our website visitor stats (not a like-for-like comparison I know) currently have incredibly low uptake for any non-iPhone/Android users and research we did last year found users of non-iPhone devices were far less likely to engage with ‘physical stuff’ in the museums. That said, I would expect to see this shift as smartphone usage and behaviours evolve.
WiFi is a big, tricky issue, and as most of the culture sector looks to harness interaction & engagement and take advantage of what mobile/digital offers, having the infrastructure to support it is increasingly vital. But that’s not easy when when budgets across the sector are being cut and – as you point out – many of our buildings don’t make connectivity easy!
QRpedia looks like an excellent project, and it’s funny that there’s suddenly so much QR+museum love around all of sudden.
Keep up the great work.
