Tourists who wish to travel to the Cape Town will have no trouble locating some of the areas around the Winelands of the Western Cape following the launch of a new smartphone application courtesy of Cape Town based consumer engagement agency called iKineo.
The app – Sideways, is currently available on the iPhone and enables tourists to search keywords by region and apply filters.
How does the Sideways app work?
All the wine farms in the Winelands region have a listing showing details such as GPS coordinates, opening times and available wines. The app enables users to access curated lists showing must-see activities compiled by Winelands experts and celebrities.
Marthinus Botha, a spokesperson at iKineo said the app was designed for South Africans and international tourists. Apart from the above, the app also offers tourists with information regarding adventure activities like running and cycling trails.
The Sideways app rewards users with meal discounts and free wine tastings when they check in with their smartphones at precise wine farms.
