New AFAR iOS 8 mobile app

AFAR Media, a leader in experiential travel, is one of the first companies to incorporate the added features of iOS 8 into the design of their app, making the AFAR app easier and more efficient for its users.

AFAR is focused on inspiring deeper, richer, and more authentic travel experiences for its users. This modified version of the AFAR app, combined with the latest iOS update—and specifically the Handoff feature-will provide on-the-go travelers, who are constantly switching between their mobile devices, a seamless experience across multiple platforms – Macs, iPhones and iPads.

New Features:

  • New “Nearby” Widget in the “Today” Menu
    – Easily locate nearby recommendations through AFAR’s integration into Apple’s “Today” drop down view.
    – With AFAR’s new “Nearby” widget, you easily have an on-the-go guide that allows you to tap into AFAR’s top 20 favorite recommendations that are near you across five categories: eat, drink, shop, stay, do.
    – Tap a recommendation and open the AFAR app for a more detailed view.
  • Seamless integration across multiple Apple devices with AFAR’s new iCloud log-in and Handoff functionality.
    – Begin brainstorming a new trip on your iPhone as you daydream on your commute home and then pick back up seamlessly on your iPad or computer via Safari.
    – Register with your iCloud log-in on any device, and utilize the AFAR app with your travel planning across all platforms with one-click login.
    – Seamless continuity through Apple’s new Handoff capability- allowing to toggle between nearby devices powered by iOS8 and Mac OS Yosemite.
