And he is optimistic that this app would be offering tourists a good insight into the history of the town as well as the stories of its residents.
The trial version of this app would be available this summer. Hauker went on to state that several locals have spoken about some disturbance coming with tourists, particularly with those would be coming by cruise ship.
Tourists have also gone so far as peeking in through some people’s windows.
More than a 100 cruise vessels generally stop in Ísafjörður every summer. And there might be about 8,500 people arriving into the town where only 2,500 live.
Therefore there is a slight crowd and irritation, said Hauker.
Hauker also said that he had stumbled upon this idea for this app that he and his family continued getting questions about their house from visitors passing by their house.
He has even mentioned that he plans to have a group of locals on the team with him so that they could work together on producing little short films about the people and their houses, talk about their families and also what they do.
Then, tourists would be able to check out the region and learn about the people, the town and the history of the town simply by utilizing this app.
