There’s An App for That!

Take a look at these images for the just-released TCM Hollywood Tour app:

     

Some of the cool features for this app include (taken from Official Press Release):

Over 100 locations covered: the app serves as a guide to 100 Hollywood locations – including movie-star mansions, studio lots, celeb hangouts, legendary film locations and more.

Welcome by Robert Osborne: a special video introduction from the TCM host with the most.

A Virtual Tour: this tour allows users to explore by neighborhood or browse the list view from anywhere in the world. They can also use the play button and forward/reverse controls to explore all the locations in a photo gallery view.

Badges: Fans can collect badges for each place they visit, whether they are using the guided or self-guided tour while in the LA area (anyone who succeeds in collecting all 100 badges – by visiting all of the guided tour’s destinations in person – will be awarded a special prize)!

Geo-location: this services guide users to each destination. Rate and Review options for each location.

The TCM Hollywood Tour app is available only for the iPhone and iPod Touch and can be purchased from the iTunes Store (purchase price = $2.99).

Personally, I am a bit reluctant to buy an app if it exceeds $0.99-$1.99 ($0.99) if I am being totally honest, but app looks very useful especially when trying to navigate a city as spread out as Los Angeles. Maybe I will get it in time for the 2013 TCM Film Festival!

 

Is this something you would be interested in?

  2. Would totally buy these if I was going or lived in L.A.. Unfortunately, neither is happening so I’ll wait.

  3. Awesome app, and I live in L.A. and want this. Thanks for the heads up.
