So far, we have created apps for the cities of Paris, Nantes, Metz (France), Barcelona and Montreal. We are currently working on the Vancouver app and forming partnerships to add even more cities.
If you’re in charge of a blog, have a big old postcards collection of your city or work for an institution, don’t hesitate to contact us (contact [at] mavilleavant.com) to discuss a partnership (or just say hi !). We get things done, and would be glad to hear from you.
