(PRWEB UK) 15 May 2013
World Travel Globe, a travel app made for the iPhone, will announce the winner of its sweepstakes on May 15. The company launched its first-ever sweepstakes in April, and contestants could apply by clicking on an “Enter to Win” prompt on the homepage. The winner, chosen at random, will receive an iPhone 5.
The mobile app, which is in development, is being launched this May. The app pulls up flight information and allows users to book flights on demand, and also lists available hotel rooms that can be booked online.
The app features a “spin the globe” icon, or “What’s Hot” feature for travelers looking to explore new experiences on a whim.
“Remember when you were a kid, and you spun the globe to see where your next make-believe vacation would take you?” said Marcus Crellin, CEO Founder of World Travel App. “That’s why I created this app. I want travelers to spin the globe on my app and see what events and festivals they can actually visit. It’s a child’s game come true.”
The What’s Hot feature pulls up a list of current events and major attractions that are happening at a selected locale. If a user spins the globe and lands on the Mexican Riviera, the feature would list ongoing carnivals, festivals, major sporting events, and more within that region. The design allows travelers to discover new places and adventures, whether they be for a planned trip or an impromptu one.
Additionally, the app pulls up information about the upcoming place of visit, including the country population, language, currency used, exchange rate, weather, time difference, and visa requirements. It also provides useful information like picture galleries, restaurant menus and hours, and metro and subway maps.
“I’m excited to announce the winner of the World Travel App contest,” said Crellin. “We've been getting a lot of support around the nation, and it’s time we said thank you to our followers.”
