App DescriptionVokrug Sveta GPS-guide
VOKRUG SVETA GPS-guide, created by VOKRUG SVETA publishing house, is a one-of-a-kind application for the independent traveler. This application allows owners of portable devices with GPS receivers to create exciting and intellectually stimulating itineraries on their very own.
The GPS-guide consists ofthe VS Guide navigation program and multimedia itineraries.
The application consists of two parts: the free-of-charge downloadable Client and the Add-on modules containing comprehensive information about each of a citys noteworthy neighborhoods or districts. These Add-on modules we call itineraries.
The itineraries are downloaded through the application. Each one includes an audio-guide along with photos of select places of interest and their descriptions. When the download of the desired itinerary is complete, a map of the area becomes available.
Having loaded the appropriate itinerary, you can set out on a walk as you listen to the virtual guide your headphones on and the device in your pocket. The application pinpoints your location and draws your attention to all visible places of interest. There are no fixed routes. The VS guide adapts automatically to any direction.
The application allows you to look at photos of the nearest place of interest, read the accompanying descriptions, and locate yourself on the map. Places of interest are sorted in a list according to their distance from your location. It is also possible to view them on the map.
The VS guide also has a special virtual walk mode for those who like to prepare ahead of time or for those who do not have GPS-receivers. This mode allows you tolisten to the audio-guide, look at the pictures, and enjoy all the benefits of travel without ever leaving your home.
