The competition coincides with the launch of Queenstown’s first free iPhone app which is now available on the Apple iTunes store – 365 Queenstown – Adventure Every Day.
Continuing its charge from the print into the multimedia world, Queenstown media company Mountain Scene launched the free iPhone application as an extension of its 365 Queenstown brand.
Updated every day with local information, 365 Queenstown is your insider’s guide to what’s on, where to go and how to find it, as well as making sure you get the best deals in town.
In one application you’ll find offers, information and maps for Queenstown accommodation, activities, bars, restaurants – and the nightlife.
Whether you’re seeking adventure activities, a great outdoors experience, enjoying a romantic getaway, shopping or just eating and drinking, you’ll find it all there in the palm of your hand.
Queenstown’s the jewel in the crown of New Zealand tourism attracting 1.7 million visitors annually.
Mountain Scene’s general manager Katrina Priest says the way that people make their decisions while on holiday has evolved.
“They’re consuming much more media than ever before, with a big surge in the use of social and mobile media to make these decisions.
“An app for Queenstown seemed a logical progression for us. We’ve made it easy for our print and online clients to ride the mobile media wave by creating a travel app for visitors to Queenstown. It’s a win-win.”
The app is primarily aimed at those people visiting Queenstown from around the world wanting local information at the touch of a button.
Priest is quick to point out there’s plenty there for locals and seasonal workers too, with a lot more to come.
“The 365 Queenstown app opens up some exciting possibilities. What we’ve released is version one. We’re well on the way to adding more functionality.
“A gigs, events and entertainment engine has been submitted to Apple and should be live soon, while open homes, let or lease and other classified opportunities are being investigated,” Priest says.
