Cinfães is the latest municipality to join the SMIITY family, mobile application of smart tourism developed by mobinteg. Fernando Pinto, founder of mobinteg, will present the solution tomorrow at 13h30, in Pavilion 1 – Stand 1A01 of the Lisbon Tourism Exchange (BTL), national tourism fair that takes place annually at FIL (Feira Internacional de Lisboa).
SMIITY, voted “Best International Tourism App” at FITUR 2018, is a solution compatible with iOS and Android mobile devices that allows regions, cities and monuments to communicate with tourists and citizens. All through interaction with beacons, small signal emitters that connect to the user’s smartphone via Bluetooth.
With SMIITY, the citizen or tourist has access to the main news, events, walking routes and points of interest of the destination where he is and in the language of his device. All the information is just a touch away and does not require the use of additional equipment or conventional tourist guides.
The app also has a Visual Assistant (text-to-speech) feature that converts text content into audio, making SMIITY more user friendly for the blind community.
Also innovative is the Augmented Reality option in the search for points of interest. By activating this functionality on the map, the smartphone’s camera opens and by rotating the device around it, the citizen or tourist can view the main points of interest near him/her.
SMIITY can be downloaded for free from Google Play and the App Store. There is also a version for Apple Watch.
