FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MappLore Ltd Releases New MappLore App for iPhone/iPad
- MappLore for iPhone and iPad is your Personal Virtual Guide linking locations, subjects and products.
- MappLore is a free App that allows you to search the world for events, subjects & people of interest and uniquely recommends relevant items available from iTunes.
MappLore Limited has today announced the release of its Apple App Store submission, MappLore, available in iPhone and iPad specific versions. This is the first App of its kind on any device, and the first from the development team at MappLore.
MappLore for iPhone and iPad is a free App that allows the User to search the world for places of interest (POI) and uniquely recommends related items to purchase from iTunes relevant to that place.
“The concept is simple,” says Mark Naples, co-founder and director of MappLore Ltd, “At virtually every tourist site in the world there is a gift shop of some description offering items for sale about the place because they know there is a high chance of the consumer buying at the point-of-sale. MappLore provides a similar function by allowing the User to perform either a location based or keyword search for POI, then returns matching location results as pins on a map. The App then pulls relevant details from iTunes for each pin, and the User can browse and buy any available and relevant Apps and eBooks.”
Never before has an App given the User such quick and easy access to material directly relevant to what they are interested in. “Imagine being on holiday and visiting a castle,” continues Naples. “You want to buy a book about the place, but don’t want to carry around a hard copy as, like most tech savvy consumers, you prefer digital format for reading on your iPad. Now, you can simply start MappLore to find what you’re looking for.”
MappLore will automatically detect your current location and you can browse all available iTunes App and eBook results about the place from within the App. If you then decide to purchase an App or eBook it is the same process as buying anything from iTunes, which can then be synched across all iOS devices.
MappLore is freely available from the Apple App Store now, with the in-App purchase option to remove adverts for just £0.69 in the UK and priced accordingly in other regions.
MappLore Limited is a startup company based in Scotland and founded in 2012 with a focus on developing unique and intuitive Apps.
