Travel Writers Can Now Publish iPhone Apps Easily(February 28, 2011)
GuideGecko, the world’s leading publishing portal for travel guides, today launches its iPhone,
Kindle and Web publishing platforms. Writers only have to compose their guides once on
www.GuideGecko.com, and may write on any destination. Then GuideGecko will create the
apps and e Books and make them available on i Tunes, Amazon Kindle and other bookstores.
Publishing is free, and writers choose the selling price.
Writers may also choose to publish on the web and receive a share of the advertising revenue.
GuideGecko shares all sales and advertising revenues on a 50-50% basis.
The apps and e Books are suited for both walks and tours with a limited number of entries as
well as for in-depth guides with hundreds of listings. They thus cater to professional writers and
travel bloggers alike. Even travelers who have invested time in planning their itinerary can share
their knowledge with a useful app.
"You can now easily publish and sell your own travel app", says Daniel Quadt, Founder of
GuideGecko. "Our apps are stylish, easy to use, and full of features so far only found in
premium apps. One of them would be the fully interactive, location-enabled maps that work
completely offline and do not incur roaming charges for the end-user."
A sample app for Singapore is available at www.GuideGecko.com/singapore-app. For more on
the program and to apply for creating your own app, please visit www.GuideGecko.com/publish.
GuideGecko is the world’s leading publishing platform for travel guides, offering more than 2700
guidebooks on 169 countries and 270 cities and regions around the world.
www.GuideGecko.com offers information on how to get there, where to stay, what to see and do, and
much more. GuideGecko publishes guides for the iPhone, Amazon Kindle and on the web, and invites
writers to publish their own guides and itineraries.
