Crystal Springs Software, LLC
We love to travel, are avid consumers of guidebooks and wanted to create a great mobile experience for travel apps. We started with some of our favorite guidebooks, the best-selling Hawaii Revealed series of guidebooks by Andrew Doughty, and then built a flexible framework for interacting with the guidebook content on mobile devices. Since most mobile devices are GPS enabled, we focused on creating an interactive map that would provide a location-centric approach to the content and make sure you never get lost doing what the guidebook recommends.
Find out what's nearby. With just two taps, "Locate Me" and "What's Nearby?" we create a custom view of the guidebook for your current location. Read about restaurants, hotels, sights, beaches, activitites and more, right where you are. Aren't on the island? Just tap the map anywhere to see what's nearby and explore the island from the map.
Find your destinations. When you find where you want to go, tap "Map It" to see a red dot for that location on the map. Then tap "Locate Me" to see where you are on the map. As you move toward your destination, you will see the blue "Locate Me" dot move toward the red "Map It" dot. When your blue dot is on top of the red dot, you have arrived at your destination.
The result? We reinvented the guidebook around a mobile travel app experience that people actually use while they are traveling. Our apps help people figure out what to do and then help them do it. These are the travel apps that we always wanted and we hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed building them.
