Travel App Tuesday :: Royal Tour

royal tour app + canada[trip style = varied] If you like the Royals and armchair travel, this app's for you.

Will and Kate are beginning their first official trip as husband and wife in Canada on Thursday. And no, their not-so-secret honeymoon in the Seychelles didn't count as business. For the record, I could not be more excited for Their Royal Highnesses to visit to Canada, and wish I was going back to Ottawa this year to see them at the July 1st celebrations!

Not surprisingly, the app for that was created just in the nick of time by Citizenship and Immigration Canada. Documenting the young couple's ultra-packed, Canadiana-filled, 9-day visit to cities in Ontario, Quebec, PEI, Alberta and the Northwest Territories, Monarch-lovers will be able to view the itinerary, look at pictures and video, check the #RoyalTour Twitter feed, RSVP for public events via Facebook, as well as send e-postcards about the trip.

Note, the app is mostly a portal to online resources like the Royal Tour website and the Flickr page, but having a Royal reminder on your phone is a great way to keep up to date with Wills & Kate.
