Jury Evaluation: 

Hungary Tourismprovides a fantastic example of how mobile technologies can be a real aid while travelling. By providing all the information normally found in numerous books and on various sites, this app is one convenient, user-friendly and beautifully designed mobile application. 

Users have access to all the relevant information when out of home, including other user reviews, regarding most of Hungary’s points of interest, accommodations and entertainment options, thus making travel planning and travelling itself more interesting, fun and error-free. 

As such, one single mobile application acts as a planning aid, a guide book, and a navigation system, providing its users with all the tools required for a wonderful vacation or day-trip. The application’s comprehensiveness (25.000 locations across Hungary), user-friendly features, use of user-generated content (UGC) and comments, and excellent technical implementation make Hungary Tourism a true best practice in the area of m-Tourism and Culture. Travellers worldwide would do well if such wonderful applications existed for other points of interest as well.
