VisitEngland today launched a new Android version of its official Enjoy England app.  This new version is free to download and provides over 1,000 up-to-the-minute ideas for unmissable destinations and attractions across the country, enabling more smartphone users than ever before to plan the perfect day trip or holiday in England. Containing the same rich visitor information as the existing iPhone version, the Android app also offers new functionality, with an inbuilt QR Code reader allowing users to scan 2D barcodes and access information on the go.

Users can personalise their search according to indoor or outdoor activities, or the most popular ‘must-see’ things to do, and those sticking to a budget can be inspired by hundreds of free ideas. Each result comes complete with a Google Map location, and users are encouraged to share their experiences and upload suggestions to the interactive map.

VisitEngland’s Chief Executive, James Berresford, commented: 
“The Enjoy England Android app was developed in response to the numerous requests we received following the successful launch of our iPhone app. The rapid progression of mobile technology is changing the way we access information, and as the national tourist board, it is crucial that our visitor information is available when and where people need it most. This new app will help even more of us to get the most out of the destination on our doorstep in this very exciting year.”
