“We created these mobile apps to ensure our visitors are always connected to the information they need when they are travelling,” said Tourism and Culture Minister Robert Vessey. “This includes events calendars, restaurant listings, great ideas for things to do while on the Island, places to stay and essential information like grocery store locations and maps.”
The apps, which are accessible by all Internet-ready smartphones, cull information from the Tourism P.E.I. website, the government of P.E.I. website and another source of culinary data.
“These are the first tourism mobile apps in the Maritimes,” said Sebastian Manago, director of CRM and Sales for the department of tourism and culture. “They take advantage of advanced smartphone features such as GPS-location, itinerary planning and social media to deliver a simple and compelling user experience for visitors to the Island.”
The apps are available for free download at the Apple store.
