Anglesey County Council has used Rougeo to launch a series of smartphone walking apps to attract more visitors to this stunningly beautiful coastal area. The App includes ten circular walks, of varying lengths and difficulty, at different locations all around the island in both English and Welsh. They focus on informed walkers about the wildlife, geology and history of the areas and include mapping, photography, specially-commissioned illustrations, text and audio commentaries. The apps also link to nearby businesses, graded by Visit Wales, such as cafes, restaurants, places to stay, attractions and shops.
“Geosho scored higher than other companies in our evaluation.” “Geosho’s Rougeo is an exciting, bi-lingual product, which matched our criteria from every angle.” Llio Ifan, Project Manager, Anglesey County Council
“Our app-guided walks will reduce the need for printed literature and could eventually save the council around £100,000 over a five year period.” Mike Thomas, Development Officer for Tourism and Marketing, Anglesey County Council.
