Spine-tingling tales about the downtown are now at your fingertips thanks to the release of the Haunted Hike App for iPhone and iPad.
Dale Jarvis, the ghost storyteller behind the Hike says the new app will allows people from away to enjoy St. John’s spooky past, and allow locals to make their own hikes year-round.
For app designer Levin Mejia, something that stuck him going on the Hike with Dale was not only the spookiness of it, but also how it delved into the history of St. John’s. Capturing both the creepy and historic were important to him in designing the app.
The Haunted Hike app is the second local walking tour-type app released in the past few months. The Newfoundland Historic Trust launched its straight-up historical walking tour app Walk St. John’s, featuring four charted walking tours past an array of downtown sites this past August.
