If you're traveling to Hawaii, and even more specifically, the island of Oahu, then Oahu Revealed is a must have download before you go. Made especially for iPhone and developed to be used in conjunction with iPhone’s GPS and Apple Maps, Oahu Revealed is a pocket-sized, mobile travel guide with information on where to go and what to see. Whether you’re looking for the best beaches, the best restaurants, or even where to see unusual (edible) sea critters, Oahu Revealed helps travelers find it all.
Oahu Revealed is a combination travel guide and interactive map with contents ranging from adventures and beaches to shopping and nightlife. When you find something of interest, simply tap the “map it” button to reveal a map that will also locate more attractions nearby or tap the “directions” button at the bottom of each attraction to open its location on the GPS-active map for driving directions. Each attraction, point of interest or business included has a thorough description with photos and provides all the necessary contact information as well.
Oahu Revealed is a comprehensive mobile guide with an easy to navigate interface, making it easy to find whatever travelers might be looking for and discover destinations they didn’t know about. The option to add an attraction, activity or point of interest to “favorites” allows for planning ahead with quick access later. If you’re a true adventurer, the “nearby” feature is a great way to explore an area on the fly. And whether you like to plan or take it as it comes, you’ll never really be lost with the built-in “Locate Me” button.
Another nice feature built in to the Oahu Revealed iPhone guide are the related hyperlinks within the descriptions. With so many relevant links built in, users can access timely information about nearby activities, recommendations or lodging without cumbersome navigation. The guidebook content is stored on your device, making it instantly available. Each content topic is subdivided by location on the island – Waikki & Honolulu, East O’ahu, North Shore and Central O’ahu – keeping the information organized and always relevant. Oahu Revealed is responsive, inclusive and reliable, making it a worthy travel guide.
While there may be other travel guides available for Hawaii, Oahu Revealed is part of a series from Crystal Springs Software that focuses entirely on the Hawaiian islands. O’ahu is the third largest island and having a guide like Oahu Revealed is the best way to find, see and do the things you want. To help make the most out of an O’ahu visit, download Oahu Revealed before you go and don’t forget to send us a postcard.
