The Chania official City Guide app | Free Download
The Municipality of Chania, making the most of modern technologies, created in January 2014, a new application for mobile phones called "Chania Tour Guide".
This new application is yet another innovative initiative of the Municipal Authority of Chania in the tourist information sector, which enables visitors and locals to receive immediate and complete information directly from the mobile device, about a wide range of topics of tourist interest, promoting at the same time the environmental, historical and cultural heritage of Chania.
This application provides useful information to the visitor on monuments and archaeological sites, beaches, churches and monasteries, sightseeing, entertainment and leisure activities available in Chania. One could also seek useful information regarding history, tradition, culture and Cretan diet.
The application runs in two languages - Greek and English - with the potential to support more languages in the future, providing the following options:
- Location View: The users have the option to locate their position on the map (GPS only) and filter the projected points by category of their content
- Favorite points: The users have the option to select "Favorite" points they are interested in and create their own "personal" tour guide.
- Suggested itineraries: The users can view on the map and follow one of the suggested itineraries, including the hotspots and relevant information.
- Offline Access: The application is fully functional without requiring internet connection (3G or WI-FI) except for the Google map and the proposed videos of Chania City.
