TCA Abu Dhabi launches new and improved 'Visit Abu Dhabi' mobile app

ABU DHABI, 28th January, 2016 (WAM) — Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority, TCA Abu Dhabi, has launched a new, improved version of its Visit Abu Dhabi mobile application.

Version 4.0 of the 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 features of the service. It allows access to the same content as the Authority’s destination portal, VisitAbuDhabi[dot]ae, is available for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone, and features enhancements to make it a more user-friendly experience.

“We’ve listened carefully to all your feedback and our app has been completely redesigned from top to bottom following the latest user experience trends to make the whole experience even more immersive and easy to use,” said Mouza Al Shamsi, Acting Executive Director of Marketing and Communications at TCA Abu Dhabi. “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.”

Al Shamsi went on to say that a number of useful and intuitive new additions are also present, including integration with TransAD, 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.

With content and services in nine languages, Arabic, English, French, German, Italian, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, Japanese and Chinese, and a location-based functionality, the app is a comprehensive, easy-to-navigate online and offline mobile guide, giving instant and structured information on Abu Dhabi’s attractions, experiences, culture, heritage, hotels, restaurants and most frequently-asked questions.
