Prague’s history comes to life with new smartphone application
A new smartphone app is making exploring the streets of Prague even more exciting
A new smartphone application is making exploring the streets of Prague even more exciting and interactive.
The Prague Ghosts TourHistory application, developed by Augmented Reality Media, or ARM for short, allows users to experience a new dimension of the city and brings to life Prague’s ghosts and ghouls.
Compatible with any mobile device that runs Android and iOS, the unique application uses the latest technology to bring a new authenticity to Prague’s ancient history. TourHistory directs users to thirteen mysterious and historical locations across Prague’s Old Town, where they simply point their mobile device at the site. A ghost will appear at each location explaining the story behind their demise and the legend of the area. Using their mobile device, the application even allows users to take a photograph with each ghost.
“We expect the application to be very popular with both locals and visitors to Prague, and we hope to expand on the initial thirteen locations as application downloads increase,” say the developers behind TourHistory.
“For those who are not able to visit Prague the application can also be downloaded and viewed using Google Street View, allowing those interested in the city’s history to experience it first hand from the comfort of their homes.”
Available in seven different languages including Czech, English and German, a basic version of the TourHistory application is free and easily downloaded from Google Play and the iTunes App Store. Additional legends from ghostly guides are available at an extra minimum rate of 20 CZK.
ARM has used state-of-the-art advances in augmented reality to develop its totally unique application that brings history to life using modern technology. It is recommended that users’ mobile devices have a quad core processor with at least 1GB of RAM to get the best TourHistory experience.
Further information and a trailer of what to expect on your terrifying tour of Prague is available at www.tourhistory.cz.
