Autio Travel App Launches in Australia
[Melbourne, Australia | December 2022]
Autio has announced its Australian launch, in partnership with the Victoria Tourism Industry Council, initially with a focus on Victoria in the region between Bendigo, Echuca, and Heathcote.
Autio is a mobile audio entertainment app for travel that uses geolocation technology to automatically play stories of landmarks, cities & towns nearby. Headquartered in California with a mission to deliver a compelling story at the right time, wherever you may be; the app features over 10,000 stories in the United States & now hundreds in Australia. The app won the Webby for Best Travel App & has been featured as App of the Day by Apple.
Autio was co-founded in the US by actor Kevin Costner, who commented;
"I love stories, I am the guy that stops at the historical markers along the highway, usually bringing moans from everyone in the car.
But it was this continuing curiosity that I began to think Autio could satisfy without anyone having to leave the car”.
The Autio app recognises when travellers come within a few kilometres of an audio story and notifies the user.
With over 200 stories (and growing) that are free to listen to, from Echuca, Castlemaine, Bendigo, Heathcote, Daylesford, Kyabram and more, Autio provides an entertaining, informative, and important record of these incredible Australian places.
Loud Zebra is proud to be the exclusive production partner for Autio in Australia and the United States.
Every place has a story, now every story has a place.
The Autio App is now available for download, free from the app store.
