Our client is the principal authority for planning, supervision, development, and marketing of Dubai’s tourism sector. The organization promotes the emirate’s commerce sector and is responsible for the licensing and classification of all tourism-related services, including hotels, tour operators, and travel agents.
Our client wanted to take the Dubai shopping experience to the next level by introducing a mobile application for tourists. Considering the growing relevance of smartphones, they realized that launching an interactive app for tourists and city dwellers would significantly enhance the experience of discovering Dubai. Apart from listing the options for entertainment and leisure in and around the city, the app would incorporate functionalities such as augmented reality and GPS to enhance user experience. The application QBurst developed proved useful not just for tourists, but also introduced the city residents to more entertainment and shopping options in Dubai. The client wanted to develop the application for both Android and iOS platforms to ensure maximum reach.
The discovery app provides information about shopping opportunities, promotions, hotels, events, and tourist attractions. The app serves as a location-based mobile information guide for tourists, businesses travelers, and residents. It incorporates features that help users find their way to the nearest shopping destinations. Users have the option to search for places/activities based on what they want as well as where they are. Camera view displays the surrounding areas in augmented reality, offering an immersive experience to users. The application supports English and Arabic.
