Go Explore Canada Named One of the Best Canadian Smartphone Apps
A gateway to Arctic region, Canada is endowed with many natural wonders. The country is a home to a plethora of urban attractions as well. Go Explore Canada
is a multimedia app offering over 5,000 points of interest in Canada that makes it easy for you when it comes to traveling over this vast country.
The app that covers all 10 provinces and three territories of Canada, and includes paid listing from the top restaurants, hotels and clubs is a must have for those intending to make Canada their next vacation destination. In the release, the makers of the App said
that it already includes 5,000 locations and is adding more every day.
The Go Explore Canada app was created by a Canadian production company with deep roots in film and television production. From the very beginning, the makers focused on creating a feature-packed app that does not crash. Go Explore Canada is one of those rare travel apps, which occupies little space on the phone and runs fast, said the app makers.
The app can be downloaded free of cost from the Apple (News
) App Store and Android Market.
According to users of Appolicious
, Go Explore Canada is one of the top 10 Canadian apps: "So you've arrived in Canada. What next? This app has tours based on your province, city, and what kinds of tourism you're into. I definitely can vouch that the Toronto tour hits all the major amusing activities/sites in the city and surrounding areas."
In the latest version, the app comes with new category searches that allow users to easily zero in on what they want to find anywhere in the country. The 5000 PoIs are searchable by province, territory and city with sections for nature and adventure, history, fun things to do, eating, sleeping, night life, transportation and other essential services.
The map, address, phone number, description and direct link to its website pinned on each POI helps the travelers to surf without losing their place on the app tour. The sites can also buy embedded multimedia that plays instantly off their listing, the company said.
The success of Go Explore Canada, encouraged to introduce the branded map-based apps in three different sizes. All of its apps come with patented Tour Builder software developed by its U.S. partner, Bar Z Adventures. The software allows app clients to change the content as often as they like simply by logging on to the dedicated server with their password.
