Barber Media Launches BC’s Newest Tech Start-Up Canada’s Best Apps Inc. Whistler Based Company Releases Mobile Apps helping Travellers explore West Coast

Online PR News – 05-December-2015 – Whistler, BC – Barber Media announced the release of Canada’s Best Apps, a suite of custom-built mobile apps for the tourism and travel industry. The user-friendly apps are offered free to travellers and are available on most Android and IOS devices. Users simply download the apps to access information about the Sea to Sky corridor, including Vancouver, the North Shore, Squamish, Whistler and Pemberton. The collection of apps can be found by searching “Barber Media” in the App Store or Google Play.

John Barber, Founder and President of Barber Media Inc. said, “After a successful 120 day soft launch of the product, we’re ready to release the apps to travellers visiting the Sea to Sky Corridor, from Vancouver to Pemberton, and every stop in between.” Whether travellers are in the pre-planning stages of their trip or on the move, the apps provide content rich information to help them make timely, informed decisions. The apps include powerful integrated mapping and complete travel guides containing information on attractions, local accommodation, activities, transport, dining, shopping, amenities, health & wellness and essential information such as road and weather conditions.

Canada’s Best Apps has been in the development and testing phase for five years. “By working within our established network of valued clients and locations, we were able to gain insight into the final vision of our product and the potential value it will deliver to both the end user and our clients alike,” said Barber.

Based in Whistler, BC, Barber Media has provided travellers with information through their network of custom brochure racks located throughout the Sea to Sky corridor, for the past 17 years. Publications include seasonal dining, activity, art, and health & wellness guides, as well as the hardcover book, “Restaurants of Whistler.” With the release of Canada’s Best Apps, businesses now have access to a new marketing channel, one that has considerable reach, and literally delivers their content into the hands of the savvy traveller.

“It’s like having a visitor information booth, right in the palm of your hand,” said Barber. By harnessing the convenience of mobile devices, Canada’s Best Apps increases accessibility of information. As visitors travel up the Sea to Sky Highway (Highway 99), they can take advantage of the entire suite of Canada’s Best Apps, as they link together, as well as function individually, for a seamless and easy to use travelling experience.
