For those who prefer to travel with information at their fingertips, Life in Abruzzo is delighted to announce we have just been commissioned to create an “i-app” Guide to Exploring Abruzzo’s best kept secrets by Sutro Media, the world’s leading developer of travel apps for i-phones & i-pads for all occasions.
78 of 120 of all paid travel apps featured on the ‘What’s Hot’ list on iTune are Sutro Media Apps
Sutro Media actively encourages enthusiasts and experts in their fields to share what they know with the world, attracting people from across all mediums, including books, video, online social media and websites to produce guides for use on iPhones, iPads and other Smartphones.
When users download a Sutro Media-created app, they expect (and receive) reliable information and expert content; an opinionated author voice; inter- entry links that create a rich environment for exploring a destination; intelligent search functionality; entertaining multimedia elements such as YouTube videos; the ability to comment directly on an entry and engage with the author or even subject; the facility to share content with friends; sort functionality to order entries by tags (like dining and cost, historical and neighbourhoods, shopping and relative proximity); illustrative slideshows; Google maps with taxi estimates; one-touch phone calling and website access; relevant hours and pricing information, and more.
Over the next few months we’re going to be very busy exploring and writing our app travel guide to Abruzzo as well as posting to the LifeinAbruzzo blog; if you have suggestions for those off-the-beaten-track secrets that you’d like to share with the world, do send them through. Whether it is a photograph, link, or just a short couple of sentences we’d love to receive them, go visit and if they’re interesting & suitable we’ll include them! We’d also love to know about apps that you’ve found really enjoyable or features that you would like to have included in this mobile travel guide to Abruzzo we’ll do our best to try and include them!
