The GuidiGO platform is now compatible with Google Cardboard…
There’s always something brewing at GuidiGO. In fact, two new apps, one for the iPhone and one for the iPad, just appeared in the App Store. You can download them here and take a brief tour of the details below.

GuidiGO, the leading storytelling platform for creating next generation guided tours on mobile and wearable devices, partners with the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, to offer the first-ever tour of a complete exhibition on Glass.
