Searching through the Apple App store for anything can be a challenge with all the choices available. Somehow I managed to stumble upon the updated version of Tourism Victoria’s App made by Discover Anywhere Mobile. I thought I’d post a short review for anyone that may be interested in grabbing this great app before or during their visit to our great little city.
The App has a nice clean appearance with a very clear layout for the menu system. Simply click on one of the homescreen headings to take you to: Transportation, Nearby Locations, Restaurants, Sightseeing areas etc.
The iPhone can use your location to find things of interest that are closest to you. This may be useful if you have a few minutes and want to do some exporing.
It looks like there aren’t all of the companies in Victoria listed in the directories but there are many and at least enough to get you a taxi or bite to eat.
I like the Calendar of events. Even as a long term Victoria resident there were many things in the calendar that I hadn’t heard of or wasn’t sure of the dates. It had Museum updates, local craft fairs and other events for Victoria and the nearby towns.
Tourism Victoria’s twitter feed also is on the main menu so you can follow there tweets easily without even opening up your twitter account.
Short and sweet, I won’t take your day up but I recommend checking out this simple and easy to use App if you have an iPhone and are visiting or even living in Victoria BC.
*I have no affiliation with the app or the tourism board. This review is for information purposes only and to hopefully help you prepare for a visit or a move to Victoria BC and potentially to help you with your Victoria Real Estate needs.
