[prMac.com] Birmingham, UK - Announcing that TheMovieMap.com, the developers of TheMovieMap, has launched a special new product for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. The application is a movie lover's guide to filming locations around the world. TheMovieMap combines GPS technology and an information database to provide scene addresses and trivia details about the site. Features include two ways to perform searches and allows users to submit any filming locations they know about.
TheMovieMap is an app for finding film locations anywhere in the world and is perfect for users to take on road trips or vacations. In fact, they can plan their own movie tour with TheMovieMap as their guide. Lining up a movie tour route is easily done, as the app allows searches by alphabetical movie titles or by location. TheMovieMap takes advantage of GPS technology and users are offered a map view with red pushpins indicating a shoot site, or a street view to get an even closer look at where they're going.
Each scene location has some trivia background that movie lovers will enjoy reading, either to prepare for their location visit or to add to the excitement once they arrive. Users who happen to know of a filming location that is not already noted in TheMovieMap are encouraged to submit it to the developer for possible addition to the software.
