[prMac.com] Haywards Heath, United Kingdom - A new camping, glamping and caravanning app has launched in time to help holidaymakers find the UK's best camping and glamping sites. Campmate, from Campsites.co.uk, is a free app that brings more than 600 UK campsites and holiday parks to iPhone users.
Martin Smith, founder of Campsites.co.uk and the developer of Campmate says: "The UK's camping industry is worth almost GBP 2.4 billion with UK residents taking more than 15 million trips every year (source: GB Tourism Survey, 2015) and yet the range of available apps is small in size and those that do exist are a bit dull and text heavy.
"Campmate's design team have set out to create the sector's most visually appealing app, with every entry featuring high quality pictures and maps plus detailed information about facilities, available accommodation and things to do in the local area."
There are more than 20 filters helping users to quickly search for tent and caravan pitches, weird and wonderful glamping, static caravans and lodges. Users can click to sort by sites that are pet friendly, have pools, are close to the beach, are family friendly or adult-only, and by many more preferences that are ready to be switched on at the flick of a finger.
Campmate allows users to browse by county, search by location or find campsites near to them. Preferred sites can be added to a list of favourites, making them instantly accessible on repeat uses of the app.
Martin Smith adds: "Holidays are such a visual experience and we saw the opportunity to bring the visual style of Campsites.co.uk to an app. Campmate features big pictures and an easy interface that has been designed to mimic the iTunes design people are already so familiar with. We're already getting great feedback."
