Vancouver Island Exploration Guide iPhone App
“There’s an app for that” is a phrase that our technologically-forward society is quite familiar with. With the launch of the Vancouver Island Exploration Guide, published by Sutro Media, navigating the Island is now as simple as dancing your fingertips across your iPhone screen.
Jamie Moore, an award-winning travel writer based out of Nanaimo, wanted to create an application that made exploring our own backyard both fun and easy to use. “It’s the kind of guide that comes in handy whether you’re standing on a street corner looking for a good seafood restaurant or lying on your couch planning a day hike,” she explains. “The best part is that it’s always growing with new entries and the latest info, and users get free updates for life.”
Not only does the app allow you to pinpoint your exact location, users are also able to search for what they need based on region, activity and even price point. Over 740 crisp photographs and 130 activities are included, which Moore will be updating on a regular basis. The Vancouver Island Exploration Guide app is available for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad users and can be purchased in the iTunes app store for $2.99.
