More and more tourists rely exclusively on mobile devices for their travel information. The latest version of the i Tour Seoul+ app, released in November 2015, features a sophisticated design utilizing the latest mobile technology to provide an easier and faster user experience.
At 25mb, the i Tour Seoul+ app is super lightweight, making it easier to download and allowing it to function faster than the 250mb i Tour Seoul.
The app’s elegant design allows users to browse information by category, area, current location, or favorites. If you’re feeling ambitious, you can also conduct your own advanced search.
The app works in conjunction with Seoul's official tourism website (Visitseoul.net) to provide real-time information. Working through Visitseoul.net also allows you to make reservations for musicals, exhibits, and other events as well as book hotels and other accommodations using your mobile device.
The i Tour Seoul+ app incorporates so-called "augmented reality" technology, which uses your mobile device's video recognition functionality. When you point your device at a particular page in the "Seoul Tour Guide Book," the app provides useful tourist information to the user in real time, providing an even more enjoyable experience.
The app also offers location-based tourist information for visitors who are unfamiliar with the lay of the land or who need neighborhood information quickly. You can search nearby tourist destinations, restaurants, and transportation with a single click.
Available in 5 languages (Korean, English, Chinese—simplified and traditional—and Japanese), the i Tour Seoul+ app can be downloaded from Google Play and Apple's App Store.
