FunJeju iPhone App Review.
Jeju, certified by UNESCO as 2010’s Global Geopark, is more than just another one of Korea’s islands. With its Natural World Heritage Site Jeju Volcanic Island and Lava Tubes, Jeju is Korea’s most valuable and beautiful island. From rugged sea shores to open plains with horses, from mountains, caves, waterfalls and other landscape attractions to fun activities like golfing, submarine tours or pleasure boat rides, FunJeju is the iPhone app to have around when traveling to that part of the world.
The app comes in English, Chinese and Korean, although the AppStore screenshots will have you look at the Korean version. Don’t get scared, most of the app’s contents are also available in English, although some areas of FunJeju will need you to speak Korean to access.
And I guess this is my main concern with the app. Not everything is available in English and that makes it seriously hard for non-Korean speakers to fully enjoy what is otherwise a beautifully-designed iPhone app. Even some parts of what appeared to be a full-English description of activities were written only in Korean.
If you’re planning a trip to Jeju, then you might want to get your hands on more information about what you’re about to see before hand. Sure enough, you can scour the net and Wikipedia and jot down all you want, but having FunJeju on your iPhone certainly makes that task easier.
You'll get all the information on:
- Activities: Golf, submarine tour, Marineleisure, etc
- Shopping: Local market, duty free shop, 5day market.
- Food/Restaurants: Local Food, sliced raw fish, Pork,etc
- Vehicle: Cart, Riding, Pleasure boat, Submarine.
- Attractions: Mountains, Cave, Waterfall, Valley, Island, Beach.
- Accommodations: Guest House, Pension, Condo, Hotel, Resort.
- Night Tour : Night tour information.
- Coupon : Discount Coupon
Now, you have all the information you need for when you travel to the Korean province of Jeju. The hotel guide will have you staying at the best accommodation possible. The general guide is a pictorial representation of the sights you can see on the way down the coast. And now, the FunJeju app will let you explore all the options that Jeju provides, from activities, eating, main attractions and shopping.
Unfortunately, there's only so much you can do to review travel apps without actually going to that place.
