Going to Basel, Switzerland and interested in Jewish life and heritage?
Then you'll want to get a new app for smartphones and tablets that is officially being launched on August 26.
Called "Baleph," the app is designed for both IOS and Android platforms and is in English and German.
It leads the user on a "stroll through Basel's Jewish history" via a 13-stop, multimedia walking tour that highlights Jewish history in the city from the middle ages to the present. Featuring text, sound, and images, an Interactive timeline, and a city map with GPS function, it contains 65 minutes of audio material covering a tour lasting 1 ½ to 2 hours.
