Bangalore. Sonata Software launches a guided walk experience mobile app for INTACH, Bangalore, for the City's Heritage Sites.

Sonata Software, an IT consulting and software services provider, and the Bangalore Chapter of The Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH), a country wide, volunteer-driven, not-for-profit organisation that protects and conserves India's vast natural, built and cultural heritage, have announced the launch of a walking-tour app of the city's heritage sites. The mobile application is available on the mobile app store of Apple and also on Google Play for Android mobile device users. The INTACH mobile app allows for an enhanced walk experience, focusing on little-known facts and facets of the city's heritage.

The app can be downloaded immediately and free of cost from Apple's App Store and Google Play.

The application has been launched in English and Kannada both. It allows users to leverage interesting features like GPS and mobile camera, to have an interactive tour experience. It also lets users share their in-tour experiences in real time, on social media and capture pictures that can be stored within the application on the mobile device.

Using illustrated maps, visuals and audio, the application takes visitors through a defined walk route. Each stop gives the user an overview and things to look out for and also allows the user to send feedback. In case of poor network connectivity, the application even works in offline mode with the content being packaged in the app.
