WALKABOUT ST IVES APP UNVEILED FOR IPHONE
15 April 2013
Holidaymakers hoping to visit St Ives whilst staying in luxury accommodation in Cornwall will now be able to enhance their experience with a brand new iPhone app. The Walkabout St Ives app was recently launched and will offer users the chance to go on an interactive heritage trail around the town.
The app uses a mix of photographs, archive film, local stories and art to guide visitors on a trail around the town. Commentaries from fifth-generation fisherman Christopher Care and local artist Naomi Frears will also give some real local insight into life in one of England's most beautiful seaside towns.
The history of St Ives and its thriving industry can be discovered at home too, as the app can be used at home as a virtual tour before visiting the town. The app is available for just £1.99 on the iPhone and iPad and is a great way to make a day out in St Ives extra special.
