A major update to Towers Guide, an iPhone and iPod touch app covering Alton Towers Resort, has been released. Thursday 25th March 2010 - Towers Guide is an app for the iPhone and iPod touch which was originally launched back in May 2009 and has received thousands of downloads from the iTunes app store. Today we're pleased to announce a major new release of the app - version 2.0. Here's a full list of Towers Guide features:

- View your location on a map.
- Display rides, attractions and facilities nearby.
- Get intelligent, sat-nav like directions to any ride, attraction or facility.
- Search through items.
- Filter items by category.
- View photos of rides, attractions and facilities.
- View detailed ride descriptions, histories and specifications.
- View the height, age and weight restrictions for rides.
- See what facilities a ride has, such as on-ride photos or property storage.
- Use the location based features even if you don't have a GPS capable device with 'manual locations' mode.
- Receive automatic wireless updates, bringing you the latest park info seamlessly.

No stone has been unturned with the re-development of the app. From user interface improvements to faster calculation of directions and improved wireless updating - everything is better.
