My Devon iphone app iconWe have just released the My Devon app!

My Devon is a comprehensive guide to things to do, events, shopping, attractions, eating out and where to stay across North Devon and Exmoor. The data is fully cached on the phone so you don’t need a signal to use it.

My Devon allows you to plan a day out or see ‘what’s nearby’ when out and about. The search functionality allows you to:

  • Choose an area
  • Search near a town
  • Search near your current location
  • Drop a pin
  • Filter the data

Each entry describes the attraction with pictures, opening times and full contact details, and if you’re looking for accommodation it even allows you to book!

If that is not enough, you can also add places to your favourites, email places of interest to your friends, and a quick link shows directions from your current location by car or on foot.
