July 24, 2012 - PRLog -- Santa Clara, California, July 6, 2012 – Geogad's travel tours have gotten even easier with the release of the updated Geogad Tours Android application. This updated app adds in an Augmented Reality view to exploring popular travel destinations. The Geogad Tours app also has a simplified method for travelers to purchase premium tour and stops content. With just a couple of clicks, the traveler gets this prime multimedia content sent to their phone or through any of Geogad's distribution channels. Geogad's partnerships with local travel professionals to distribution their knowledge-rich content over the Geogad distribution platform gives the traveler the best of local expertise while expanding the regional economies.

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.

Geogad works closely with regional travel experts and professional tour guides to provide travelers with the best local knowledge. These travel guides not only make their names known across vast distances to remote travelers but also take advantage of Geogad's digital distribution platform to virtually guide travelers at all times, day and night. This digital introduction of the regional tour guide to the travelers, even before they arrive at their travel destination, provides the travelers with a friendly, familiar face in a never-before-explored destination and gives the tour guide an additional source of income and an additional pillar on which to build his or her expert reputation.
