The Karlsruhe.app – the multifunctional app for all citizens
The Karlsruhe.app is the mobile, digital and lively forum for everyone in Karlsruhe. But it is much more than just an app! This is because it also bundles a large number of other apps that have to do with Karlsruhe (“marketplace”). In addition, there are special channels and overviews on a wide variety of topics (“channels”). And users can put all of this together individually. Numerous services were already available at the launch in December 2021. Since then, a whole range of additional content and functions have been added. Much of this was done at the request of the users.
The new multifunctional app combines municipal and other useful services, offers a new communication channel between the administration and society and makes everyday life easier for citizens. The concept was awarded a prize as part of the state competition “Digitale Zukunftskommune@bw”. The project is therefore an important milestone for Karlsruhe on its way to becoming a smart city. Under the working title “digital@KA”, a platform was created that centrally bundles existing mobile Karlsruhe services, news and services relating to culture and leisure activities. Existing mobile services with a Karlsruhe connection can be used centrally and customized according to preference.
The app is currently in the test phase and is being further developed together with the urban community.
