Creative tour company Dabeeo, Inc. has released its latest version of Blinking Tour Seoul, a smartphone application specialized in providing tourism-related information services around the capital city.
One of the most notable features of Blinking Tour Seoul is that it allows users to access the application offline without connecting to a wireless network, meaning that users will not incur any additional data charges. The offline mode is also convenient for international visitors, who can use the application without fear of disconnection.
The updated version features an enhanced design and expanded travel information. The application's Android version offers multilingual services in English, Chinese, and Japanese. The same services will soon be available for iPhone and iPad. Additional Blinking Tour applications for two other cities in the country and five cities abroad are scheduled for launch within the year.
Dabeeo, Inc received the Grand Prize at the 1st Creative Tour (Tour Venture) Business Contest hosted by Korea Tourism Organization and sponsored by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
In addition to the smartphone application, Blinking Tour's online website (http://blinkingtour.com) has also begun to provide domestic and global tourist information. In particular, the online website features a Smart Tour Planner function that automatically builds your travel itinerary according to your travel preferences, travel period, and destination.
Blinking Tour Seoul is a useful application not only for travelers, but also for tourist business operators, who can check traveler information in real time and view collected travel-related data.
