Mobile tourism guide
Our Mobile Tourist Guide enables smart phone users and owners of tablets with Android, Windows Phone and iOS operating systems to display tourist maps, giving current positions and showing tourist attractions in the form of points of interest. It offers information about tourist attractions in text, picture and especially in voice form, in a variety of languages.
You can download the latest information into the tourist guide in advance from the internet. The application then functions independently, even in places without a GSM signal or data services.
The application can serve as a vocal guide, taking you through the town and surrounding district. As you get closer to a particular attraction, it will show it and read out detailed information about the given landmark (tourist attraction). Information is not recorded in MP3 format, the app uses an artificial speech synthesiser that “reads” the text.
The app can also show you an up-to-date overview of cultural events in the immediate locality.
