February 29, 2012 in Travel
[prMac.com] Prague, Czech Republic - Independent developer Robert Srahol today is pleased to introduce Costa Concordia In Memory 1.0 for iPad, his multimedia Travel app that relates the dramatic tale of the largest luxury liner ever built in Italy, which struck a rock on Jan. 13, 2012 and forced the evacuation 3,229 passengers and 1,023 crew. The app includes text, color diagrams, HD photos, and video to tell the story of the breathtaking opulence and design of the ill-fated ship, and the details of the rescue in which 32 people lost their lives. Costa Concordia In Memory is a historic document, a memoriam to the ship and those who died, and an object lesson in the vulnerability of technology against the forces of nature.
Layout of the Costa Concordia:
* Deck 1 Olanda (Italian for the Netherlands)
* Deck 2 Svezia (Italian for Sweden)
* Deck 3 Belgio (Italian for Belgium)
* Deck 4 Grecia (Italian for Greece)
* Deck 5 Italia (Italian for Italy)
* Deck 6 Gran Bretagna (Italian for Great Britian)
* Deck 7 Irlanda (Italian for Ireland)
* Deck 8 Portogallo (Italian for Portugal)
* Deck 9 Francia (Italian for France)
* Deck 10 Germania (Italian for Germany)
* Deck 11 Spagna (Italian for Spain)
* Deck 12 Austria
* Deck 13 (sometimes called 14) Polonia (Italian for Poland)
The app, Costa Concordia In Memory, includes four sections: Basic Features, Ship Photos, Disaster Photos, and Video. The Basic Features section features and exploded diagram of the ship and its technical specifications. The ship, launched in 2005, is described as, "a floating resort dedicated to fitness and relaxation. The ship's name, Concordia, symbolizes peace and harmony (concord) among many different peoples, and pays homage to Europe and some of its more important cities, including Paris, Rome, and London."
Ship Photos includes 23 full-screen, HD photos of all areas of the ship: Exterior, Atrium, Restaurants, Upper Deck, Theatre, Bars, and Other Areas. Disaster Photos includes 34 revealing photographs of the sinking ship from January 13 - 15, 2012, ship captain Francesco Schettino, passengers awaiting rescue, and underwater photos of the damage.
Perhaps the most powerful of all the app's features is the seven-minute promotional video produced by Carnival Cruise Lines, owners of the ship. This professionally produced video reveals the extraordinary beauty of the ship's interior design and facilities. It very successfully portrays the variety of experiences available on the ship, from a multi-level spa offering soothing, ancient Indian Ayur-Vedic massage and oil treatments to a dazzling, urban casino. Among the most ambitious and expensive luxury liners of its day, the video preserves the ship's magnificent design and decorative features, and contrasts the security derived from modern engineering and technology with the ever present threat of human error and the inestimable power of nature.
