Hi im building a iphone and android "island travel app" for a couple of hotels on an island.
It consists of "hot spots" and reastaurant menues and stuff like that.
Do you have any  more suggestions of things you think a good "island travel guide" should consist of?
Examples of existing good apps?

Things to do, attractions, talk with local vendors/restaurants work out coupon deals for kickbacks to make profit or advertising. Anything that a person could do on the islands would be beneficial. Give them directories of phone numbers and maybe some "what to expect" types of things.

Take a look at the open market place for apps like these, and build something better!  Build in a user experience changer...for example...

It's great to have access to the locations (addresses of something), better still is turn by turn directions, what else can be done to ensure that the user has a reason to go there?  With all the apps that are popping up all over the place and for every little thing....Selling advertising in your app for the local to-do's on the island sounds like market management at it's best...It's a tourist trap application....Change the way tourists experience that ISLAND!
