'Notspots' on the road in SA - and Icasa
In the UK, it seems, they have things called "notspots" - the opposite of hotspots, places where mobile voice and cellular data connectivity is simply non-existent. In developing and testing the Magaliesberg Biosphere and the N3 Gateway apps, I've discovered more than my share of South African notspots. This country's notspots are a problem but until very recently we had the means (and, almost, the money) to get rid of them. And then the government got too clever for its own good... When we first launched the Platinum Road app a couple of years ago it required the user to download a pretty hefty app: more than…
The Stone Age in the Magaliesberg
Incredible legacy of the Stone Age in the Magaliesberg The Magaliesberg - in particular the Cradle of Humankind - is world famous for what it tells us about the very ancient origins of humankind but the area is at least as interesting for the stories it tells about the ancient origins of us: modern humans.

Let us make an app for you
We do great apps – apps that work – for users and for the travel industry.
Just about everyone these days is making a travel app – and most of them are
Apps that consist of little more than directories listing ATMs and restaurants
with a few badly-written, meaningless words just don’t cut it with travellers who
want content that is useful and interesting. We don’t do the former but we do do
the latter. Which is why our apps are so popular – people actually use them and
interact with them. And they work brilliantly.
Our apps are designed by content people, not ad agencies or techies. Please get
in touch with us about building a great app that does justice to your route, your
area or attraction.
Bet we can do it for much less than the other guys. And you will have fantastic
content that you can use forever and ever. Drop Peter Delmar a line at
