Irrespective of whether you're enjoying Wales as a visitor or as a resident, use this free app to share your trail with others or download a route to explore a new historical experience that can help you find undiscovered scenery, sounds and Welsh heritage along the way.
View your trails on a map in the palm of your hand, or simply capture your route to upload later; aided by photos or videos from your library or taken there and then. You can use your iPhone to contribute your trail to one of the biggest collaborative online historical projects and upload it directly the People’s Collection Wales website, showing other users your interpretation of Welsh culture, in what is one of the World’s finest landscapes.
Allow your iPhone to find out what items or trails from the Collection are in your immediate vicinity - let it help you understand Wales has changed throughout history, and relate directly to the cultural heritage beneath your feet.
The People’s Collection Wales brings together, for the first time, tens of thousands of digitized assets from the archives of major institutions the Royal Commission, National Library of Wales, National Museum for Wales BBC Wales and Culturenet Cymru in to a single website.
The People’s Collection Wales is funded by the Welsh Assembly Government and is an important commitment to develop an innovative bilingual (Welsh and English) approach to collect, interpret, distribute and discuss Wales’ culture and heritage in an online and mobile environment.
Please enjoy this free app, and in the process help us to develop the People’s Collection Wales.
Not bad but needs improvement
There are some areas that need improved greatly; you should be able to choose/view individual or all walks in the UK not just what's around you. What happens if you go on a road trip, this app becomes useless then because you have no idea of trails outside a 1 mile radius. Needs to be a rating system and difficulty rating for each walk. Not enough walks in Cardiff, they are all the same. I was highly annoyed that to register I got re-directed to the website, instead there should be registration inbuilt into this app. Is there an option to share walks with friends by sending them the link via txt? There should be. When these improvements are made I'll give it 5 stars till then the is not much use to me but it's a good idea.
