[prMac.com] Ventura, California - By taking the location-based mobile application to the next level, Sunday Drive has distinguished itself as one of the fastest growing apps in that red-hot market. Growing legions of fans have downloaded the app to date, and interest from Domestic and International travel industry professionals is also on the rise. With the acknowledgement from Travel & Leisure Magazine as of the Top 10 Best iPhone Tour apps, Sunday Drive is on the move and adding routes to the database as their fans create and upload scenic and dynamic new drives.
Sunday Drive is both a location-based mobile app and a travel aggregator that allows for consumers to choose pre-planned routes with directions via GPS using both maps & voice command. Photos of the POIs (Points of Interest) along the way, as well as informative descriptions of each POI and the overall drive, accompany each route. Sunday Drive routes are alternately scenic, historic, educational, and just plain interesting, and are constructed by local photographers, writers, historians and other passionate travelers around the nation.
Sunday Drive App allows you to browse Sunday Drives near your current location from your iPhone and then download them to your smartphone. The application is currently available on iTunes and once downloaded provides you 24/7 access to guided tours based upon your current location. The app and routes are Free, which makes the Sunday Drive App one of the few great deals on the market today.
When asked, Sunday Drive Founder and CEO Jason Scott explained why he developed the app by saying, “I created Sunday Drive as a resource to find and explore the hidden gems and local history in each community.” He also notes that his goal was to build an app that would be “used as a way to connect one’s family and friends with the surrounding environment, whether that environment is urban, natural, cultural, or what have you, with the overall goal of preserving those surroundings. At Sunday Drive, we want people to enjoy the outdoors in order to become better stewards of those outdoors.”
