Nexto is a new AR app created to entertain a tour and teach visitors about historic places with multimedia content.
Calling themselves a cultural engagement platform, Nexto is a smart mobile guide to destinations of cultural and natural and cultural heritage. The mobile app upgrades the regular experience of audio guides by detecting your location through Bluetooth or GPS sensors and pointing out the attractions in your vicinity.
The Slovenian based AR supporting app serves you to tour the town with headphones in your ears and a phone in your pocket, then you can receive content automatically while exploring the location, without any direct interaction with the phone. Your experience is further enhanced with quick access to visibly marked and guided interactive maps, as well as the visually appealing presentation of a rich media content.
Travelers can download the AR app Nexto, and get a digital tour guide designed to gamify sightseeing.
When launching Nexto, the app lists various locations for them to visit while on tour. At each place, the user can learn about the history of the location through augmented reality images and quizzes. As users gain points from correctly answering the quiz questions and visiting more places, they start to unlock virtual souvenirs to take with them wherever they go. You can download Nexto for both iOS and Android devices.
The developers behind Nexto encourage users to send recommendations for places to make new trips about. Seems like the Nexto is a new and exciting way to tell location-based stories for tourists who want to have fun during their travels.
