The coolest addition to the upgraded Geogad Tour Android application is the new Augmented Reality (AR) view. It combines the best of motion sensors and image technology to display the Geogad Tour content in a fun and interactive way. The app automatically pinpoints the traveler's geographic location and gets a list of all nearby Geogad tours and stops. This information also can include nearby daily deals from local shops and restaurants that cater to travelers. All of this information is drawn in real-time on top of the phone's camera view. From the traveler's point-of-view through their phone, the world is now covered with virtual signposts of nearby and interesting stops to explore and guided tours to follow.
Geogad has a treasure trove of professionally created travel documentary and native knowledge that is distributed over the web, streamed to mobile phones, and downloaded from the main Geogad web site at http://www.geogad.com. Much of this multimedia content is available for free, and some premium content is available for a nominal fee. Once purchased, the traveler can access this premium content across all of Geogad's distribution channels. The updated Geogad Tour application has redefined its in-app purchase of Geogad's premium tours and stops to just a few clicks from start through purchase to finally viewing the streamed content on the phone. This simplified design saves the traveler's time to maximize their vacation hours.
