Discover the 32 islands of SVG on The Fly
NEW YORK, NEW YORK, April 26, 2011 A new mobile app for St. Vincent and The Grenadines (SVG) is now available on iPhone via the iTunes App Store (iPad version coming soon) and as a WebApp for Android Phones and Blackberry. The free app makes it easy to get a snapshot of this breathtaking destination and what it offers the traveler who is looking for a different Caribbean experience, away from the crowds, a place where you can truly unwind.
“In recently introducing a new branding for SVG, we felt it was the ideal time to develop a mobile app that shows the different dimensions of our country,” said Glen Beache, CEO of the St. Vincent and The Grenadines Tourism Authority.
The app has in-depth information on the 32 islands of this fascinating country including stay, play and dine. It includes a range of photography and video, maps, as well as information on where to stay and the different experiences that these islands offer including sailing, diving, soft adventure as well as it being a very special place to get married or honeymoon. Travelers can take advantage of everything SVG has to offer, from getting married on a private island to simply relaxing on a picture-perfect beach. In addition, social media sharing is also being integrated into the app, allowing users to link to their Facebook and Twitter profiles from within the app.
“The mobile app is a work in progress and we are planning a variety of upcoming features”, Mr. Beache continued. “They include downloadable updates, tips on how to plan an island hopping adventure, and more video and photography opportunities to win trips to experience our country.”
SVG is in the process of building several major new developments including Argyle International Airport, which will open in 18 months and will offer direct international jet service from the U.S., Canada and Europe. Additionally, there are several new major developments in process including new luxury resorts and boutique properties. The number of U.S travelers is increasing as they discover what the country has to offer.
