December 15, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsHawaii Guide Me, the free iPhone app that is your tour guide for the Hawaiian Islands, has now been downloaded by 20,000 people and counting. By far, it is the most popular travel app for Hawaii, having 10 times as many downloads as the next most popular Hawaii travel apps. An Android version is also due out soon.
Hawaii Guide Me is the (not so) secret weapon for anyone planning to vacation Hawaii.
It is a full spectrum guide for Hawaii, giving users information on restaurants, hotels, activities, beaches, sights, and almost any kind of service once could ever need on the islands. The app uses GPS technology to locate the nearest desired service, and provides detailed directions using a satellite map. Users can sort businesses by price, ratings, and more, and share their experiences with friends and other Hawaii Guide Me users via reviews and Facebook. It even provides weather and surf reports, and coupons.
"Reports from reliable sources such as ComScore show that smartphone users are one of the most engaged audiences of any medium," says Chuck Bergson, CEO of Pacific Radio Group. "They tend to be smart, savvy and want to utilize cutting edge technology to simplify their lives. Hawaii Guide Me was purpose-built for them."
