NEW APP HELPS VIS­I­TORS EX­PLORE HER­ITAGE OF RA­JASTHAN

Marwar - - All Things [Great And Small] -

A new mo­bile app is set to help lo­cals and trav­ellers gain ac­cess the rich cul­tural her­itage of Ra­jasthan. Ra­jasthan Tourism has col­lab­o­rated with two IITians to un­veil TripMyWay, which fo­cuses on cre­at­ing self-guided in-trip au­dio and vis­ual guides for vis­i­tors to the state. The app is pow­ered by IthakaTales, a start-up founded by en­gi­neers from In­dian In­sti­tute of Technology, Mas­sachusetts In­sti­tute of Technology and NYU Stern, who have re­turned to In­dia. The con­tent is GPS en­abled in var­i­ous mul­ti­me­dia for­mats. There is also an off­line mode for users to down­load au­dio tours and book­mark their favourite places. Around 12 cities and 150 points of in­ter­est in Ra­jasthan are al­ready on the app, in­clud­ing Amer Fort and Pushkar, and more cities and sights will be added each week.
