Monumental Agra – iOS app review
Bang for buck:
Ease of use:
Agra offers many historic sights other than the Taj Mahal which is one of the seven wonders of the world. Sights like Fatehpur Sikri, Agra Fort, etc. that are equally worth visiting. Although you can hire a guide at any or all of these attractions, ToCha offers this app which is your personal guide to this magnificent city, with this interactive app offering point-to-point directions, maps and audio tours.
Some of the features of this great app are:
- Detailed maps of Taj Mahal, Fatehpur Sikri and Agra Fort that gives you a bird’s eye view of the sights with numbered points on the map corresponding to their suggested tour route.
- Click on the numbers and you can hear (and read) the details of the particular sight. Having an audio version of each point is a fantastic way of being able to view the site and still gather the knowledge, before moving on to the next one.
- Almost every point in the tour comes with picture to easily orient yourself.
- Pull-down audio player with easy play/pause features allowing you to listen to and read the text while you walk at your own pace.
