Nathalie Beeckman, Brussels. The 53rd Europalia is now underway at Bozar, and it's never been more colourful. The Body in Indian Art opened the festival with a bang; and we were on hand to support India's President Pranab Mukherjee and Belgium's King Philippe with audio in English, French, Flemish and for kids. Wonderful!

Having thoroughly enjoyed working on the project, here are some insights into the ingredients needed for building a city tour app.

Amy Carmichael, London. I have recently been privileged to work with an exciting client – the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital's health charity. We have been exploring different ways that digital content, smartphone apps and imagineear’s MPtouch technology can enhance the experience of visitors and patients in health environments. In a word, it's Music that Makes you Better.

Eleonore (Noortje) Heijboer, Amsterdam, Friday, 22nd March. Oh joy!! I have been waiting eagerly to be ‘Eye to Eye’ onsite with Frans Hals and our multimedia tour – and here I am. Amazing experience; the works are stunning. As advertised, Frans Hals more than stands his ground against Rubens, Rembrandt and Titian.

Nathalie Beeckman, Brussel. Bijna één op de twee bezoekers van de Watteau tentoonstelling in Bozar kiest ervoor om onze multimedia tour te nemen: een nagenoeg ongeëvenaard hoogtepunt voor een Belgisch museum.

James Dyer, Rio de Janeiro. Taking the message to the new world, braving the beaches and storming the stadia. Well this was the idea behind attending the show at Soccerex in Brazil.

Andrew Nugée, London. Our first project with the health sector is underway, and what a great way to start! Not many of us look forward to spending time in hospital, but one London hospital is doing its best to mitigate the experience.

Andrew Nugée, London. For as long as I have been providing handheld media services, people have told me that it is madness to invest in player design and stock. It makes a tonne of sense, this line of argument. And still, over a decade later, we resolutely build players, charging racks, even headsets. So there’s a conundrum. Here’s the conversation I might have with my alter ego.

Andrew Nugée, London. Prototype assembly stage for our new project out of Shenzhen, China. We're into the last few months, the pieces are slotting together. It's a tense, exciting, time.

Amy Carmichael, London. After a relaxing bank holiday weekend, not everyone looks forward to going back to work on Tuesday. But with a day of filming for our new stadium tour at QPR ahead of me, I suspected that I might be in for a fun day!
