HALIFAX, Jan. 26 /CNW/ - Go Explore Canada is a multimedia app created
by a Canadian production company with deep roots in film and television
production. The app covers travel anywhere in Canada (including the
high Arctic) with extensive listings in all ten provinces and three
territories, many with multimedia.
It's a free download from the Apple App Store and Android Market. The
producers - Go Explore Everywhere Inc - have loaded it with the top
natural wonders and travel attractions of Canada. They also sell
listings to the top restaurants, hotels and clubs. It already has
5,000 locations and more every day.
Users of Appolicious (www.appolicious.com) say 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."
The producers of Go Explore Canada have streamlined the latest version
with new Category searches that allow users to easily zero in on what
they want to find anywhere in the country. One of the challenges was to
build an app this big and make sure it didn't crash. But working with
their software developers, the producers have come up with an app that
occupies little space on the phone and runs fast.
"We wanted to make an app that's the one to have if you're travelling in
Canada," says Mark Pedersen, one of the two Maritime brothers who have
expanded their media production company to include multimedia apps.
The more than 5,000 Points of Interest are searchable by province,
territory and city with sections for nature and adventure, history, fun
things to do, eating, sleeping, night life, transportation, essential
services and more.
Each POI has a pin on the map, address, phone number, description and
direct link to its web site that can be surfed without losing your
place on the app tour. The sites can also buy embedded multimedia that
plays instantly off their listing.
Go Explore Canada has been so successful that the producers have also
begun selling branded map-based apps to other clients in three
different sizes. All their apps come with patented Tour Builder
software developed by their 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.
Go Explore Everywhere Inc. is a joint effort of brothers Jon and Mark
Pedersen who have years of Canadian film and television production
experience, including the Canadian Antiques Roadshow, documentaries for
CBC, CTV and IFC and Jon's feature film Tuesday, Wednesday.
