Free Android App (beta)

To download the free app you must be viewing this page in your android device's browser. The app covers much the same ground as this website, with the exception of Pompeii which will require a separate app to itself. The app is undergoing review and final testing and any comments you have will be greatly appreciated. (You can submit these through the 'Contact Us' page or the Guestbook). 

The app was created using software provided by Mobincube, as a result of which there are unfortunately ads at the bottom of each screen. We hope that these are not too intrusive and do not detract from your enjoyment of the app.

Description

The app is designed to run on any android device, but, obviously, the larger the screen the better (Nexus 7 or similar). The app covers the general details already discussed in this site including the effects of the eruption, the history of Vesuvius, The Roman House, decorative styles, underlying infrastructure and a detailed description of all the important properties to be seen in Herculaneum, Stabiae, Borcoreale and Oplontis as well as some isolated dwellings in neighbouring settlements.

Download

The app can be downloaded by clicking this link. Please remember that you must be using your android device's browser when you do this. The download is almost 50mb so make sure you have plenty of space. Before you download you should confirm that your device allows the installation of applications from Unknown sources. To do this:

1. Open Settings and navigate to the Unknown sources option (under Applications or Security depending on your device).

2. Tap the checkbox and then OK on the confirmation popup
