(PRWEB UK) 17 December 2013
World Travel Globe, an iPhone app that funnels tourist and travel information on one platform, announces 10,000 downloads this month. The newly launched app is free and available for download at iTunes and is quickly gaining popularity among business travellers, vacationers, and general explorers looking to take a trip on a whim.
Creator Marcus Crellin invented the app off of the game that he used to play as a child – where he would close his eyes, spin the globe, and then open his eyes to see what destination he would pretend to visit.
“It was exciting to fantasize about other destinations of the world,” he said, “what types of food I’d eat, the way people dressed and looked, and the different attractions each country boasted. Now, as an engineer, I travel a lot for work and I’m privileged to be able to see all of these attractions face to face.”
Since Crellin is always jet hopping, he designed the app as a useful tool for people looking to stay educated and organized. After spinning the app and picking a destination, users can browse information funneled from websites, including weather forecasts, currency rates, festivals, sporting events, and more. Forget following link after link to pull up subway systems in London – the app does the research and pulls it up with a swipe of a finger.
“It’s nice to see people using the app and taking interest in it,” said Crellin. “I just want to help make travelling easier… that’s all there is to it. If I can help take the stress off of planning a trip to make it even that much more enjoyable, then that alone has made my day.”
