This guide covers 33 of the most important excavated structures in the ruins of Ephesus. It offers a full description of every excavated building including 3D models or sketches of how the buildings used to look in their past glory. Markings on the map shows where the structures are placed, and where your are accordingly to them.
Using TTS (text to speak) your smartphone will act as an audioguide and will read the texts out to you loud, as you visit the different buildings. The voice used, is the default TTS speaker voice, which is already installed on your device. All you need to do is to press “Play” at the bottom of a selected text, and the chosen text will be read out to you.
You can either use our predefined tour of the highlights of the area, or you can plan your own tour through the excavation site. Simply use the Tour Planner features to select the buildings you would like to see and then follow you own route through Ephesus.
The Ephesus app does not need for your device to be on-line in order to run - Once the app is downloaded and installed on your device, you can go off-line and still use the guide without any data transfer.
The Ephesus app will ask for your GPS position - However the data will not be stored in the app, or in anyway shared with external parties. The app will work without the GPS turned on, but then it will not show your position on the maps.
The app has no “add-ons” or "in app purchases", so all the features will be yours without extra fees.
The app is ongoing being updated and new features released.
