Description: BRINK Traveler is a virtual travel experience that takes you to amazing natural locations in full 3D to feel like you’re really there. Step into a postcard and visit some of the most breathtaking places on Earth today!
Review: ‘BRINK Traveler’ is a collection of 12 amazing locations from around the world. While most of them are located in the US, some are from other countries as well. Each location is a 3D postcard of sorts in which you get a small amount of movement as well as 3 nuggets of information that you can find with your compass. To be fair each location looks incredible and you get a real sense of depth at them. It is great to view on your own, but when used in an educational setting it could be especially useful. If you just enjoy standing around looking at the views you will easily find your money’s worth here as I did, but if you rush through each of the locations you might feel a little short changed. OK, so this kind of app is not for everyone, but I personally loved it and can’t wait to visit the rest of the locations which are coming soon.
