Hi folks!

I and amnesia have made a new app called euroTRIP.

Here's the description:

 

 

euroTRIP app is a must have app when traveling around Europe. The app was designed with high roaming prices in mind. All the data is stored within the app, internet connection is not required. You will find a lot of information in the app, basic country info, emergency numbers, specific traffic laws and so on. If you're in a country and don't know what to check, you have a few top sights from every country, too.

Main app features:

- 52 European countries
- traffic laws, speed limits, compulsory car equipment and documents, safety laws, etc.
- emergency numbers (police, ambulance, fire brigade, towing services)
- 5 most popular sights for every country
- driving tips

There were quite a few updates in the meantime with an added jumplist too.

 

A new big update will probably come next week. There will be quite a few new features added:

- click on a sight to open location in bing maps
- on the country page added "facts" and "phrases"

Screens below:

Is there a Scotty Doesn't Know easter egg, though?

Serious. I travel abroad rarely, but when I do, I make it a point to have some handy reference on that country's customs and stuff rather than wandering in a devil may care fashion. If I was driving myself, even more so. Emergency numbers, too. 112 is not universal, is it?

112 is not universal, is it?

 

Most modern mobile phone operators will redirect 112 to whatever the local emergency number is.

Not necessarily the case for landlines.

 

Here's Australia, for example:

 

Dialling 112 directs you to the same Triple Zero (000) call service and does not give your call priority over Triple Zero (000).

 

112 is an international standard emergency number which can only be dialled on a digital mobile phone. It is accepted as a secondary international emergency number in some parts of the world, including Australia, and can be dialled in areas of GSM network coverage with the call automatically translated to that country’s emergency number. It does not require a simcard or pin number to make the call, however phone coverage must be available (any carrier) for the call to proceed.

 

Dialling 112 from a fixed line telephone in Australia (including payphones) will not connect you to the emergency call service as it is only available from digital mobile phones.

So yeah, this app can be very useful if you had minimal time to plan a trip and want important information collated for you with little effort on your part.

 

Kudos to the app creators. I'm sure quite some people will find it useful.
