Easy to find application wants to be a better, more detailed and informative domestic tourist “Google Maps”

first_imgAll the trends say one thing – the focus is on the mobile phone, which will soon, if not already, become the main object in our lives and the only thing we can’t do without. Soon, the mobile phone will become the main means of payment, identification, the medium – we can do without everything, but we cannot do without a mobile phone, and the only object that is with us all the time.Thus, in tourism, through various applications and social networks, the mobile phone is used for taking pictures, recording videos, communicating on social networks, navigating and source of information, etc.… On the other hand in tourism, but in a more detailed, broader and informative way. It is an Easy to Find application whose goal is easier and simpler navigation in tourist destinations, ie in a new environment where tourists find themselves when they come to Croatia, which is completely unknown to them because they are in the destination for the first time.The question is what the destination offers, from tourist to all other useful information, from post office, shops, pharmacy, service, gas stations, course… but also all additional information about everyone, not just markers on the map to get as fast as possible, more precisely, in more detail the user could find his way in the new environment and get all the necessary information in one place.As Boris Stoilkovski, one of the founders, points out, the Easy to find application offers everything we need and the whole of Croatia in the palm of your hand, thus eliminating the need for various maps, navigation and various applications separate by city. “The goal of the application is for every person in an unfamiliar environment (as well as in a familiar one) to find his way as quickly as possible and reach the desired goal in the fastest appropriate way. In addition to mapping all possible places and locations, the application also includes hiking, biking and hiking trails, and we offer the possibility of virtual tourist routes (virtual walks) and much more.”Boris Stoilkovski points out.The idea of ​​the application is to make it possible for users to have all possible information about the desired location in one place. “In other words, there is no need to use multiple apps for different cities, timetables, oil prices, accommodation rentals, etc. because the Easy to Find app covers absolutely everything, with only the tourist aspect of our country in mind.”Boris Stoilkovski points out.At first, the association is on Google Maps (GM), but Stoilkovski points out that they do not like the comparison with GM because they look much wider and that they were not guided by their business model.The content of Google Maps is defined, so we do not compare with them. However, our willingness to support innovative ideas and load different content into the application, makes us more flexible in relation to them. Thus, we opened the question of the advantages of our application, and that is that its content changes as the actual situation on the ground changes. A kind of goal is to encourage our users to upload content themselves, thus making it easier for everyone to navigate.. “Pointed out Stoilkovski and added that this is a start-up company and a newer application, and that they are currently approaching a thousand users, which is very good in a relatively short time, without advertising and the beta phase. The application is in beta and should be ready for full implementation in two to three years, when they plan to completely map the whole of Croatia.There is a long and difficult road to the end of mapping and entering all the details in front of Stoilkovski and the whole team, but, as they point out, their goal is not instant earnings but a quality and stable solution and they are looking at the long term. Step by step, they diligently map the whole of Croatia and fill in all possible data about all destinations, which are actually the most valuable that the application will offer and what Google Maps does not have or “can” have – accurate, detailed and freshly localized information about the entire destination.Just go ahead and stay awake, because until yesterday they laughed at various “new kids”, and today Facebook is the largest medium in the world and they do not generate their content, Uber has become the largest taxi carrier without a single taxi in its ownership, Alibaba is the largest a store without warehouses and goods in its ownership, and Airbnb the largest accommodation provider and does not own a single property.If you have an Android device you can see / download it here – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.easy.it.find.easytofind02last_img read more
