VoiceMap allows you to connect to story tellers from around the world via your phone and is a way of accessing stories about places. You simply choose a route; start walking and you’ll hear the voice of a story teller.
VoiceMap walking tours stories are all written and narrated by informed, opinionated locals, who use the company’s publishing tool to link their personal stories to GPS co-ordinates.
We spoke to the Co-founder and CEO, Iain Manley and he says his travelling experience inspired him to create VoiceMap app.
I spent a lot of time travelling. The best time I had was when somebody took me under their wing and showed me around their city— Iain Manley
VoiceMap, according to Manley is an open platform, it allows anyone to load a story about their city and receive royalties. Currently they have a list of stories from 31 cities and hoping to reach 35 cities by the end of this month.
