Developer’s note: The iSrael application provides information about tourist sites, lodgings, itineraries and events throughout Israel. Using the application, it is easy to locate tourist attractions and places to stay, to plan trips according to recommended itineraries and to look up events according to the geographical location of the event or the application user.

The maps incorporated in the application make it possible to determine the location of a site, the direction in which it is located and its distance relative to the user’s current position (requires an online Internet connection).

The iSrael application can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere, even without an online connection to the Internet.

Features:
– Israel tourism guide
– GPS-based system
– Comprehensive information on sites, lodgings, itineraries and events
– Detailed maps

(via jpost.com) In the next stage of development the system will be adapted to other appliances.  The iPhone user will be able to upload photographs and comments to social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter in real time. Another feature of the application includes receiving precise information including maps and augmented reality to direct the user to the desired location.

With the click of a button the user receives complete tailor-made information on a variety of heritage sites, family entertainment, nature reserves, active leisure options, archeology, museums.

The application allows the user to build an individual tour including photographs. The Tourism Ministry said that the information will be updated on a regular basis with the help of the relevant tourism bodies.

After downloading the application free of charge from App Store, the user can access the application even when he is offline (although updates will only be available with internet connection).

Tourism Minister Stas Misezhnikov said “The Tourism Ministry continues to lead the service revolution for the tourist and visitor to Israel with the use of advanced technology, as is done in the major tourism cities around the world. This application joins the Tourism Ministry’s electronic marketing system that includes the expansion of the website into different languages, activities in the social media, setting up forums etc.

The application, which is launched in English and Hebrew, will soon be translated into other languages in keeping with the composition of incoming tourism – Russian, German, French and others. Working in cooperation with other tourism bodies, the ministry will soon include broader information in the application such as public transport, gas stations, hospitals etc.
