There are 8 categories of attractions: Beaches, Fun for Kids, Gardens, General Attractions, Museums and Galleries, Parks, Pools, and Seattle Center. Hospitals and Police Precinct categories are also included in case users need medical help or require help from law enforcement.
Information about an attraction includes opening hours (if any), admission/ticket price information (if any) and a brief summary of an attraction.
Directions from the user’s current location to the attraction can be found with just a few button taps. A button on an attraction’s information page opens Google Maps and fills out the “Destination From” and “Destination To” fields. The user simply chooses their preferred method of travel (vehicle, transit, bicycle, or on foot). To get directions, ensure that your phone’s GPS and wireless networks are enabled.
In essence, “Seattle for Tourists and Washingtonians” gathers and cuts down on a user’s search time for Seattle’s best attractions and information about that attraction by delivering data user’s will most likely want (hours, admission, and summary) and provides directions to the attraction with a few button taps.
