Kids get their own travel app

iOS app claimed to enhance travel for children and parents

Children now have their very own travel app for iOS devices.

The new interactive application, Bound Round, has been designed by children for children. It is targeted at eight- to twelve-year-olds and has been launched with 60 city overview guides. The app also has seven detailed destination guides included in its database.

Bound Round founder and CEO, Janeece Keller, said the goal of the application is to be at the forefront of innovation for children’s travel experiences and education.

“Through our global release kids can whirl around the world at the swipe of a finger and learn about the variety of cultures and experiences that exist in an entertaining and engaging way. We also enable them to have a greater say in holiday destination experiences.”

The app is designed to get children to engage with the places they are visiting. Bound Round’s goal is that young users will explore the destinations they are traveling to before and during their trip. The company says this will enhance the traveling experience through education and interaction.

Bound Round claims the app will be useful to parents as well because they will be able to access information on what children enjoyed about a specific part of their trip.

The company claims the main feature of the app is the separation of content and technology. This enables content to be updated on an ongoing basis. Bound Round claims this will keep it fresh and relevant for its young users.

The detailed destination guides included at launch are Sydney, Melbourne, Gold Coast, Uluru, Canberra, Hong Kong and Fiji. Bound Round says it will be releasing more destinations before Easter such as Singapore, Tokyo, Phillip Island and Cairns.

The Bound Round app is available from the App store for A$2.99

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
