By Hachette UK (LBS)
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Ian Rankin’s Edinburgh is a personal guided tour by the Number One Sunday Times Bestselling author of the city that inspires his writing. This FREE to download APP is perfect for the millions of Ian Rankin fans; either to be used directly in Edinburgh or at home as a supplement to Ian’s novels. Specially created videos, audio, and lots of exclusive content including stunning photographs bring this fantastic city and Ian’s books to life.
The app has been updated in 2012 with a fourth tour along the Water of Leith. This takes you off the beaten track to a favourite walk of both Rankin and Rebus. This is in addition to the three mini tours that take you on a circular walk around 30 key Edinburgh locations, each relevant to Ian’s novels and characters, particularly Inspector Rebus and his exciting new character Malcolm Fox. It is also an informative and easy-to-use guide to the city itself, so that you don’t need be a fan of Ian Rankin to really enjoy this app.
Many of Ian’s fans have never been to Edinburgh, so with the photographs taken exclusively for this app, they will have the opportunity to see the actual locations that Ian uses in his plots (which don’t usually feature in many guidebooks), including the police stations, murder scenes and hidden backstreets of Edinburgh, and you’ll be able to hear the author himself giving his views on Edinburgh’s ‘dark side’.
In this updated edition of the popular ‘Ian Rankin's Edinburgh’ iPhone app, you’ll find exclusive new material, including videos, extracts and photographs plus extra locations to visit. This is the best version of the app yet!
