Create Location-Aware Mobile Apps for Visitors

Whether it’s a city virtual tour or a mobile tour of a neighborhood, apps for tourists have exploded in popularity over the past few years. OnCell's destination marketing apps gives visitors the opportunity to learn more about a particular place while also providing you with the chance to draw them in and give them relevant information that will enrich their visitor experience.

  • Orient Your Visitors

    GPS-enabled mobile phone tours have a location-awareness feature that helps create a custom experience for your visitors and physically guides them around your city or tourist destination. Smart street maps integrate with Google™ Maps and are ideal for walking tours, biking tours, and driving tours.

  • Instant Visitor Notifications

    Push custom messages to visitors such as alerts for special events, special offers, or when there is new content to access.

  • Provide the Most Current Information

    OnCell provides a unique web app that is updated in real time. Your tourist app is never stale; if something changes or moves, updates to the app are done in real time.

  • Provide Multiple Languages

    Multi-language support allows you to reach more visitors and serve international travelers.

  • Appeal to Many Visitors

    Take advantage of the technology that your tourists are already carrying. OnCell tours work on ANY device with a web browser and can be published as native iPhone® or Android® apps at a fraction of the price of developing one from scratch. No need to worry about what kind of mobile phone your visitor is carrying, OnCell works on them all.

  • Integrate Sponsors or Advertisers

    Fund or monetize your app or other projects with sponsorship and advertiser integration, which can be branded directly into your app.

You choose whether to offer your app on the web, Apple or Google Play stores. So many options. Something for everyone.

Customer App Examples

Cultural Tourism DC

Washington, DC

OnCell converted five audio walking tours of downtown Washington DC into a GPS-based mobile web app. Visitors to DC can get off the National Mall and explore some of the lesser-known historic sites around town - no matter what kind of mobile device they own.

Cultural Tourism DC is promoting the app with QR codes around the city. Users can scan the codes and launch the app instantly to learn about where they are standing.
