Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) May 23, 2012
Go Trexx (http://gotrexx.com), a developer of entertaining travel applications for children, has launched its series, “City Travel Guides…For KIDS!” These destination-centric apps, designed for use by young travelers rather than parents, engage children before and during travel by combining education with entertaining features that drive a deeper appreciation for popular tourist destinations.
“Parents spend countless hours and resources planning vacations that will reconnect families and expand their children’s horizons. But sadly, sometimes their expectations fall short. Our app offers children an opportunity to be more engaged in the vacation and initiate conversations that will drive quality family interaction during travel,” explains Go Trexx Founder Samantha Lurey. “Because Go Trexx features language and trivia targeted at a younger audience, parents can avoid boredom, excite young travelers, and maximize family bonding time driven by their children.”
The apps offer a number of educational and entertaining features to be used prior to and during family vacations. Among them:
- Curious Travel Facts: While adults may focus on the historical or cultural significance behind a particular point of interest, children generally want to know more obscure or curious facts. This series combines educational and intriguing facts about various points of interest within each destination location to increase excitement and engagement.
- Engaging Trivia: Children have an opportunity to test their knowledge with fun quizzes and other trivia to further reinforce their learning experience and create more enjoyment. This trivia can also drive conversation with their parents or other travelers to enrich the vacation experience.
- Customizable Postcards: The app enables children to place themselves into iconic scenes in each destination location to create custom postcards that they can save to their devices and share with friends.
Go Trexx’s flagship app, New York City Travel Guide…For KIDS! is currently available for download on Apple and Android platforms, and features 13 of the most popular tourist destinations in New York City, including the Statue of Liberty, Central Park, Times Square and the 9/11 Memorial. In June, Go Trexx will be launching destination-specific apps for Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Los Angeles and Orlando.
