Mobile App for Paris Museums Created with Tour Buddy

Paris, July 31, 2013: Tour Buddy is excited to share about the new Paris: Art and Stamps app because it was built by just one man who loves art–Mark H. Haimann, M.D. A retired ophthalmologist, Haimann’s passion led him to build his very own app using our app builder platform by uploading 125 images of postage stamps that are miniatures of works found in the Louvre and Musee d’Orsay.

Paris: Arts and Stamps ScreenshotHaimann also added the audio, and he will be leading a tour group there this summer to explore these world-famous museums where the group’s visit to both will be enhanced by the app he built on our easy-to-use (and edit on the fly!) platform.

Each painting can be viewed in full with web links while listening to the narration, and other related works of art are also referenced with web links. Haimann wanted the app to be something people could enjoy while on-site seeing the works of art firsthand or for those who haven’t yet visited the Louvre or Musee d’Orsay but want to be whisked away to Paris through listening to the audio and viewing the images on the mobile app.

He opted for a $1.99 price tag for his app because all proceeds from the sale of the Paris: Art and Stamps app benefit the American Philatelic Society.To hear sample audio and view some of the stamps, visit
