What is the history and popularity of the app?

On the outside, NileGuide may sound much like the hundreds of other travel-themed websites available on the internet. However, the site was created as a way to offer users a fun and entertaining way to learn about the places they will visit. Rather than presenting mundane facts and a text book history, Nile Guide uses technology, curated travel content and local knowledge to create a unique resource for the modern traveler.

What are the differences to other apps?

Nile Guide is different in its approach to sharing information. Anyone can find an article about a travel destination. Gathering information on a place’s past and culture is not such a challenge. However, finding a single location that combines text book information, entertainment, and local knowledge is not so simple. Nile Guide has brought all of these elements together along with colorful images to prepare travelers in a way that is fun. A vacation or trip should be an exciting experience. Nile Guide makes sure that excitement begins very early on, during the planning phase.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Nile Guide presents a professional style that retains a hint of fun. The site is full of colorful images and positions them in a way that blends well with the layout and menus. Photographs are featured and compliment the text rather than pull attention away from it. A new user can easily seek out the features and information they need to plan their ideal trip. Nile Guide gets right to the point by offering a destination search bar right on the homepage.

How does the registration process work?

Visitors to the Nile Guide website do not have to register to access the information found here. However to use all Nile Guide features, an account is recommended. To begin registration, new users can click the gold “sign up for Nile Guide” link at the top right hand corner of the homepage. A pop up box appears requesting a valid email address, password, screen name and terms of service acceptance. After registration, new users are asked to check their email for verification. A second registration option is available that allows new users to sign up through their Facebook profile.

What does it cost to use the application?

Nile Guide does not require a membership fee or any kind of payment for access. In fact, a visitor to the website can review the articles and destination information provided without making an account. Users can also create their own personalized travel guide using hand picked destinations and information they choose to add. These guides are free to create and can be printed or taken via mobile phone.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Anyone planning a trip, regardless of the budget, can appreciate what Nile Guide has to offer. It is important to learn about a place before heading there, especially if traveling between countries. Nile Guide presents a wealth of information in a way that is easy to access from anywhere with an internet connection. The price is ideal for those on a tight travel budget who cannot afford the luxury of an agent or service to plan their trip. Instead, Nile Guide lets travelers tailor a travel guide to their personal preferences all for free.
