In 2012 we celebrated our 10 year anniversary, and to keep up with the busy lives of travellers we decided to create a Travel Safety Awareness App for iPhone and iPad. The Safer Travel App will be available free to download and use on the 10th of October 2013.
The Safer Travel App offers specific travel and safety information for destinations around the globe. The app will provide travel safety tips, information about the country or city, highlights and attractions, and useful and emergency phone numbers. It will also offer helpful website links that travellers might need, local and annual events in the area, places to go and avoid, season to travel, interactive maps, current population, ethnic groups and languages spoken. An additional live feed will provide up to date information on local news, political situation and currency exchange rates.
Our aim for this project is to provide specific information for popular tourist destinations. Over the following year we plan to expand the Safer Travel App to cover more destinations and favoured backpacking routes. Ultimately we want to cover every travel destination around the world!
Most people take mobile phones with them wherever they go, now users will be able to access relevant travel safety information, maps and links on one app anywhere in the world. The App is released on the 10th October 2013!

In order to provide this essential service we have teamed up with:
Got Focus Solutions
We are massively passionate about mobile technologies and we're working with some of the world's leading brands to deliver powerful, creative and intuitive mobile apps.
What separates us from the competition is our intensely passionate team and our custom platform at the heart of every development.
We only develop natively because we don't believe the one-size-fits-all approach really works for mobile apps. Apple, Google and Microsoft have invested massively in their platforms and SDKs and we think we'd be very rude not to use them for the very best quality mobile apps.
