Kukkiwon develops an app for smartphones
The Kukkiwon (President Won-Sik Kang) developed and will soon start operating an application (app) for smartphones which provides all kinds of information related to Taekwondo and the Kukkiwon.
In order to meet the needs of today’s smartphone-dependent society, the Kukkiwon started the development of the app last July.
The app consists of 12 categories: News, About Kukkiwon, About Taekwondo, Taekwondo Poomsae, Dan Promotion Tests, Taekwondo Club Promotion, World Taekwondo Academy, Taekwondo Demonstration Team, World Taekwondo Hanmadang, Taekwondo References, Open Madang, and Taekwondo Related Institutions.
The main characteristic of the app is that it contains all the information of the Kukkiwon website in the most illustrative way and with a Korean image.
The app allows users to share the information in Google blogs, Facebook, Twitter, etc. and to ask any questions about the contents through a phone number.
With the Taekwondo Club Promotion function, the owner of a Taekwondo club can sign in to promote it. When signing up, a QR code is assigned automatically, allowing an easy access to functions such as sharing, calling, messaging and the use of maps.
In order to use the Kukkiwon app, users have to search under ‘Kukkiwon’ in the Android application market and download the app.
The app will be launched in February after passing the tests that will be carried out in mid January, and it will be updated periodically in order to provide diverse information, with the possibility of developing it into various languages.
