0

Are you about to start your Camino de Santiago and are you looking for an app to help you? Stop looking, here is VOJO, the app to walk El Camino de Santiago. With VOJO you will have everything you need to start your adventure and experience the authentic experience of El Camino de Santiago.

1. ALWAYS IN THE RIGHT TRACK

Sometimes, as we walk, we find the signposting scarce or confusing. With VOJO you will not need to worry about it. With our effective tracker there will be no confusion or going around in circles because of fake yellow arrows. We have over 9000 km in 21 routes and everyone of them will keep you on the right track. Ah, and remember that you do not need connection to internet to have access to the maps.

2. ENJOY DEALS AND OFFERS

Imagine that you arrive in a town where you have never been before and you do not know where to eat. Suddenly your mobile blips and tells you that an offer has landed with VOJO to eat in one of the restaurants near your location. Sound good, huh?! Well, hurry up if you want to redeem it, they lasts a maximum of 8 hours!

3. DO NOT LOOK FURTHER, WE GIVE IT TO YOU

Who has not found themselves after a long and tiring stage trying to find a shelter, a shop, a restaurant or a pharmacy to buy plasters? With VOJO you will never have  to go through this again. Everything you need everywhere you are.

4. MORE FRIENDS THAN EVER BEFORE

If your profile is open and visible you will be able to find other travel companions and add them as friends to share chats and moment with them through the chat. Are you part of a group? Surely it will be very useful to see where exactly everyone of them is, especially the one lagging behind.

5. LEAVE A FOOTPRINT

Leave a footprint, but not only the one from your boot. You can leave geolocated messages for your friends or anyone that walks pass that point to see it. A cheering message encouraging someone to go up O´Cebreiro is never going to go amiss. It can also be good if you want to give a good advice about poor signposting.

6. SAFE CAMINO

Walking with VOJO is safer. Why? Because in case of getting lost or having an accident we could find your exact location and make it available to the authorities in charge. If your profile is open and visible, you can also contact directly other pilgrims nearby to ask for help or advice, or even ask us through our guide dog Barry.

7. DESIGNED FOR YOU

You will not need to download the whole map of the Iberian peninsula in order to have your route saved on your mobile, like in other applications. Usually these maps take an average of 500 MB of your device power. In VOJO we have worked hard so you will only have to download the part of the map for your particular route, our longest route map will only represent 70 MB. The optimisation of the weight of the maps and the optimisation of the use of the GPS and the possibility to use it offline, all have an impact in the significant savings of the use of your battery.

I´m sure we have already convinced you that VOJO is your app for the Camino de Santiago, so we only need to let you know that is available for Android devices and soon will be also available for iOS, completely free for both of them.
