Tourism WA Launches New iPhone And Android Apps

Having travelled to Western Australia on holidays I can tell you that there is so much to do that the biggest problem is narrowing it all down. Tourism WA has launched a new Android and iOS app to help out.

The app provides holiday planning tools, for longer holidays or day trips, as well as up-to-date lists of events. When you start the app, it asks you a series of questions such as whether you're a native Sand Groper (the colloquial term for West Australian), the duration of your stay and which regions you plan to visit.

Once you've made your choices, it provides a list of places for meals, sightseeing, accommodation and tourist information. There's also a transport guide and maps.

One of the great features of the app is that it allows you to download an offline version that includes maps so that you don't need a constant data connection with your phone to use the app. This is important in WA as there is a significant part of the landmass that is just empty with no cellular coverage.

You can download the free app from either the iTunes App Store or Android Market.

    Transperth should launch an app first

      Why? Google Maps can provide all Transperth timetables and routes. Just ask for directions and change to the bus and voila!

    Fail. It's a promising app, but it doesn't load. Youd think they would gave done more testing. Once they make it work on os5 it should hopefully be a great tool. Until then, Huge disappointment.
