NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--PICFARI (www.picfari.com), the innovative, free mobile app and website designed to enrich the travel experience through easy-to-use photo tours, today announced the launch of the Android version of its app.
“As the Picfari user community grows, we can look forward to an even richer experience that will include contributions such as a photo tour of Killarney, Ireland or an Art Deco tour of New York.”
“Travelers plan itineraries but many times get to their destination and find that their plan wasn’t as good as they had hoped,” says Scott Herr, co-founder of Picfari. “Using a Picfari photo tour gives travelers the chance to scout-out where to go, what to see and where to find great photo memories. When you use Picfari, you know before you leave home that you will be spending your valuable vacation time actually doing something cool, rather than hoping for something cool.”
Like its iOS counterpart launched in March, the new Picfari app for Android makes it easy to get inspired to explore new destinations from a photographic perspective. One of the most used features of the Picfari app is the “Picfaris Around Me” which, at the press of a button, instantly delivers Picfari photo tours within close proximity to the traveler. This feature is perfect for the last-minute business traveler or for anyone who wants to find out what’s interesting - and picturesque - nearby. Like all of the photos and Picfaris on the app and website, the “Picfaris Around Me” function showcases the photographic talents and local area insights of the Picfari Scout team and members of the Picfari community. As a result, Picfari users will revel in engaging, photo-driven tours that include everything from famous landmarks to hidden gems.
“Our Picfari Scouts have created fun photo tours for many top destinations around the world and we add more every week,” says Herr. “As the Picfari user community grows, we can look forward to an even richer experience that will include contributions such as a photo tour of Killarney, Ireland or an Art Deco tour of New York.”
For those passionate about capturing that just-right snapshot, the new Picfari Android app also contains the digital camera settings of each Picfari photo (shutter speed, aperture, ISO, mode setting, etc.) should you wish to access it. Further, the Android app is ideal for using Picfari’s accurate GPS-mapping function to lead travelers on a fun, time-efficient journey to the right location to get the travel experience they want. And, after the trip, the Picfari website makes it easy for consumers to seamlessly share their photos, travel commentary, and personal tour map with friends via their favorite social network.
Picfari is an innovative mobile app and website (www.Picfari.com) that helps consumers discover and capture can’t-miss travel opportunities – and preserve cherished memories - when they’re traveling. Launched in March 2013, Picfari is an exciting new way for travelers to pre-plan their trips – or to dream about future destinations – all from a photographic perspective. With Picfari, users can view a collection of photo possibilities online, and then decide on the photo tour (or, as Picfari terms them, “PicStops”) for their trip. Picfari also provides a “Picfaris Around Me” feature that instantly delivers a selection of Picfari photo tours near the user while on the road. Each Picfari photograph is coded with accurate GPS/mapping technology so that travelers can easily locate the locations for their photos – and every Picfari photo selection also provides specific instructions (shutter speed, ISO, etc.) to fine-tune each shot. The app is available on iOS and Android devices.
