Carrboro, North Carolina – One week after the release of Tally-O 1.1, the application has jumped to the top ten Paid Travel applications on the App Store. Tally-O is now being featured in the App Store’s New and Noteworthy iPhone applications, and is generating significant buzz as a must-have app for travelers, scavenger hunters, geocaching fans, and anyone that enjoys exploring unique places in the world.
Tally-O searches for nearby destinations from the app’s 1,000 unique, personalized travel guides and scavenger hunts. Players win points for visiting and interacting with destinations, and for creating their own adventures. Tally-O is the only app on the App Store that allows players to publish adventures to Facebook for their friends.
The app is an ideal travel guide, far superior to a typical guidebook. Recommendations are unique, reflecting the personalities of Tally-O players and their friends. In addition to travel guides, the app is perfect for interactive adventures like scavenger hunts, pub crawls, adventure racing, geocaching, and family outings.
Each adventure features multiple destinations with a location and description, a photo gallery, trivia questions and answers, and integrated Google maps with Show My Location. Built-in GPS detects the player’s arrival at the destination, and an optional Homing Sensor on the 3G and 3GS provides an extra challenge on the scavenger hunts.
