Local travel app itravelNZ has found a trail-blazing way to provide detailed travel information on smartphones whilst also overcoming the bane of modern travellers – prohibitively expensive data roaming. Offline capacity is the latest breakthrough development of this fully featured app.
Now you can still research itravelnz information even when you are on a remote beach that’s miles from your hotel’s free WiFi, mid-air and using flight mode, or an international traveller just scared of racking up exorbitant roaming charges. Its possible with itravelNZ travel app’s offline functionality to look for accommodations, things to do and sights to see on your smartphone or iPad.
itravelNZ is a free to download travel app for both iPhones and Android smartphones. Created by Russian immigrant turned travel tech entrepreneur Yuri Volna, the engaging, intuitive and stylish app is an interactive travel guide, which unlocks the potential within smartphones.
Travellers frequently cited connectivity and roaming costs as the reasons they couldn’t get the most from their smartphones whilst travelling. The secret to itravelNZ’s offline capacity includes the ability to download information region by region or alternatively to actively cache your research for tomorrow’s travels. So by investigating maps and information in advance, by identifying your itinerary whilst you have connection (hopefully Free) at your hotel, campground or hostel, you can set out and travel in confidence.
The app also integrates with some of the world’s most popular GPS navigation apps, like Tomtom, Australia’s Metroview, Sygic and the basic Navfree, so you can literally get lead to your chosen destination. For those international travellers, students and immigrants, it translates information to over 30 languages using an automated service.
itravelNZ’s tagline promises “New Zealand in your pocket” it is a growing resource with over 600 geolocated points of interest, non-profit attractions and a steadily growing number of activity and accommodation choices. Travellers can search for points of interest and businesses by keyword, by region, by what’s around them or by what else around a chosen point of interest.
Beyond this recent breakthrough, Volna and itravelnz team vow they will continue to develop the travel guide, to ensure it is the only travel app you’ll need for New Zealand.
