“The Windows Phone platform continues to increase in size and popularity with mobile users across the world. Microsoft has been instrumental in helping us develop a travel app that we believe will soon set the standard on the Windows Phone platform,” says Hayden Braddock, Tourism Radio CEO. “After considerable planning and testing, we are now ready for the launch of our app.”
The Tourism Radio City Guides Windows Phone app is available for download for free from the Windows Phone Store at http://www.windowsphone.com/
Braddock said that the company will be rolling out Windows Phone versions of their application stable in the coming weeks. This includes other location-aware applications such as the Britz Travel Guide and GO NZ Travel Guide, which enable tech-savvy visitors to New Zealand to discover the best that the country has to offer.
“Windows Phone already connects smartphone users to all the virtual places where they are able to connect with the people that they care about such as Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp. Now, thanks to the availability of the Tourism Radio City Guides app, users will also be able to discover new and interesting real world locations near their vicinity, which they can explore with their friends,” says Clifford de Wit, development platform lead at Microsoft South Africa.
