The app is already available (...) at the App Store [iTunes AppStore & Google Play] and was developed by iClio, an innovative Portuguese IT Company. JiTT is an App for iPhone, iPad and Android, which combines GPS location, available time, audio and points of interest, creating personalized itineraries in order to satisfy user’s specific needs.
Based on GPS [no data/roaming fees ], JiTT starts from the user current geographical location and leads to the most interesting places, taking into account the available time. Trough a detailed map, the application indicate how to get to a certain point. JiTT knows when to break in while listening to the music, to inform about the history and cultural importance of where the user is at a given moment. "It is not a common audio guide, because it’s designed to become a kind of friend, who, in a pleasant and often amusing way, speaks directly to the people", concludes iClio CEO, JiTT owner and developer.
