Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority launches new and improved Visit Abu Dhabi mobile App

ABU DHABI, 14th March, 2016 (WAM) — Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority, TCA Abu Dhabi, has launched a new, improved version of its Visit Abu Dhabi mobile application.

The latest Visit Abu Dhabi app, which allows users to gain instant access to all that’s new in the emirate via their mobile phones, is now live and features several upgrades and enhancements as TCA Abu Dhabi continues to improve the functionality of the service.

Version 4.0 of the app, which allows access to the same content as the authority’s destination portal, VisitAbuDhabi.ae, is available for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone, and will feature enhancements to make it a more user-friendly experience.

Mouza Al Shamsi, Acting Executive Director of Marketing and Communications at TCA Abu Dhabi, said, “We’ve listened carefully to customer feedback and our app has been completely redesigned following the latest user experience trends to make the whole experience even more immersive and easy to use. All of the key features that you’re familiar with from our previous versions are still present but now they’re even faster, smarter and bursting with functionality,” she added.

“A number of useful and intuitive new additions are also present, including integration with The Centre for Regulation of Transport by Hire Cars, which will allow users to book a taxi directly from within the app, and also integration with the Department of Transport to get live geo-located bus data, which will allow the user to discover the best route and schedule to get to any point of interest,” said Al Shamsi.

“The app has also been integrated with TripAdvisor, to allow access to reviews for all locations, hotels and restaurants,” she added.
