You can now download the free Nuraghe app of Tharros info from Google Play (tm). With this mobile app you can track and find the Nuraghi in Sardinia. If you are not familiar with these archaeological sites of the Sardinian Bronze Age you can read all about it on this website, including a complete list of Nuraghi and a Nuraghe map. The Nuraghe app is the portable version for mobile devices of this map. This app is free and developed for Android.
The app is developed to work as a kind of site navigator for the over 5000 nuraghi that have been documented so far on the Nuraghe map of Tharros.info. It makes use of a local database to store the core information of the sites. The local database has to be updated the first time you use the app to update all the entries. Using the Search page you can search the nuraghi by name or by place. On the Details page the core information is shown, and when online additional information and an image are available. From the Details page you can visualize the position on the Nuraghe Map when online.
When online you can also navigate directly to the Nuraghe Map which will show your position but only when you are in Sardinia it will also show the locations of the nuraghi near to you. From the Nuraghe map you can open the Details page for a nuraghe.
Note that Google Maps caches the maps on your local device and this will allow you to view these maps also offline but it will consume memory space. If the app takes too much memory storage just clear the data and reload the database.
A Help/About page is available in the app.
The app is written for Android and tested with version 4.4 and 5.01 and signed according to the Android specifications.
