Veloce Publishing has released its first iPhone App – VW Bus - The Essential Buyer's Guide.Available now from the App Store, priced at £2.39 UK or $3.99 USA, it’s compatible with iPhone and iPod touch, requiring iPhone OS 3.0 or later.
Veloce Publishing has been providing books to discerning automotive enthusiasts for nearly 20 years. Now, the same quality can be found in the form of an App on your iPhone or iPod.
This new VW Bus App gives author Richard Copping the unique opportunity to share his VW Bus expertise directly with you on your iPhone or iPod. It includes 18 sections, ranging from cost considerations to common problems. Included are three videos – model range, 15-minute evaluation, and paint problems – each featuring an informative voiceover by the author.
Each book in The Essential Buyer's Guide series provides an illustrated, expert guide to an individual model of classic car or motorcycle written by an expert on that particular model. When you've read the book or the App, you'll have the inside track on exactly what to look for to ensure that you get the very best vehicle for your money.
Veloce publisher and co-founder Rod Grainger said, " In App form, sound and video have allowed us to add new dimensions to our core product – excellent practical advice. I am particularly proud that this first App was developed entirely in-house, meaning we have the ability to roll out more Apps in quick succession, starting with a series of Essential Buyer's Guides."
The book upon which the app is based is a unique buyer’s guide covering VW Transporter-based campers, vans and buses produced between 1950 and 1990. Many color photographs were taken especially for this guide, and informative text is provided, written by enthusiastic experts with the novice in mind.
Covering all the collectable Buses produced by Volkswagen between 1950 and 1990, the App is unique in providing the full story of the high points and pitfalls of buying such models. Written by enthusiasts, the easily readable text is informative to the novice, while still being of considerable value to those who have already owned a Bus.
