Go Explore NI and experience ‘The Ultimate Road Racers tour’ on your smartphone!

Awakin Digital Publishing are excited to say that they’ve launched ‘Go Explore NI’ – a free smartphone app, which is an excellent opportunity to get out and enjoy the quality tourism experiences available in NI – we’re actually ‘Giving Away’ our award winning content in time to support marketing and promotion of NI globally in the run up to 2012.  Additionally, our partnership with Whatsonni.com, aims to connect locally and ensure folks get a chance to download this experience while it’s free!

We’re providing ‘The Ultimate Road Racers Tour’ via the app to tweak the interest and get folks excited prior to the  Relentless NorthWest 200 in May of this year.  The digital tour is of exceptional quality and was originally created to celebrate Armoy’s famous Road Racers. It uses classic footage from the Film ‘Road Racers’ as well as new material and interviews –  It’s a must have download for Bike enthusiasts or indeed anyone wishing to understand the local scene as it charts the rise of Joey Dunlop and the famous Armoy Armada and looks in great detail at their many special facets.  These include their many Achievements, World Renown, Camaraderie, Innovation and Ingenuity.  It’s completely free to download to your smartphone for the next few months thanks to sponsorship from Bayview Hotel Portballintrae and Awakin Digital Publishing.   We hope visitors will enjoy these free experiences and get out and ‘Go Explore!’

Other benefits within the app come from support we’ve given to the key Tourist Information centres in Belfast and in Derry/Londonderry in return for discounts for our users who can get up to 15% discount when they present the app when purchasing a good or service.
