Digitally-guided Irkutsk

During these days everybody has a powerful tool in their hand. And it comes in very handy when you travel. How can you travel without it now?

Now its the new level. We have apps which become guides to the cities we visit. And this is great!

All these products are still kind of raw, and time will pass when they will be full of content, or other powerful players will enter the market.

Here is an example 1

And here is an example 2

Check out two different approaches. Both projects have apps both for Android and Apple.

I like the idea that anybody can create his own tour. It is like the youtube for local guides. Let’s see how it is developing.
