Scilly Promoted In Tourism App

Tourist Information Centre in Hugh Town

Scilly will be promoted in the official UK Visitor Tourist Guide application.

The use of special software app guides, downloaded onto iPhones, iPads and similar portable devices, has rocketed in the past two years.

Last year, 27 areas joined the Visit England promotion. It allows people who access the free app from the iTunes store to download and read each individual tourist guide as well as click on weblinks.

They’ll be able to view a map showing how to get to the islands and where we are.

Julian Pearce from the Tourist Information Centre says it’s a new, different and exciting promotional tool for Scilly.

The tourism brochure guide has also been digitally reformatted so it works better on mobile devices. It will go live next year.

    Every little helps as they say and I think online is the way 90 odd% of people check out their potential holiday destinations.All we need now is some actual information eg prices and to be competitive with other destinations .
