How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

Product Description

Optimized specifically for your Kindle Fire, Magic Carpet provides interactive mapping capability that leverages satellite imagery and a worldwide geodatabase to power online shopping and hotel reservations. Magic Carpet lets you explore maps and satellite imagery of any location, worldwide, find hotels in the area, and book online.

Imagine you’re planning a trip to Bora Bora, and want to stay in a hotel with an overwater bungalow. Fasten your seatbelt, because Magic Carpet is the world’s fastest flight to the South Pacific!

You can zoom in on a satellite image, and then, when you’ve found the beach you like, switch over to a detailed view of the hotel you’re planning to book. Once you’ve found your dream resort and booked your private bungalow, you can set a bookmark for it, and email the bookmark to your friends, or post it to Facebook.

Magic Carpet includes powerful search capabilities to help you find your way to your desired destination. At its core is a placefinder that knows about cities, countries, addresses, and also a huge database with more than 80,000 hotels and an enormous collection of points of interest (stadiums, airports, amusement parks, and other landmarks). Easily switch between map and satellite views, or view the hotels shown on the current map in a list view.

When planning a vacation, it’s often easier to start with a place you want to visit, and then see what hotels are in the neighborhood. So, if you’re planning a trip to Rome, just search for Trevi Fountain and you’ll be instantly transported to the Eternal City. Once you've booked your hotel, tap the Wikipedia button, see photos and dive into local history.

The Hotel Details screen lets you browse photos of the hotel. It presents you with overview text, customer reviews, and a list of the hotel’s features and amenities. You’ve got all the information you need to decide if this is your dream hotel, right at your fingertips.

Looking for a great deal? The "More Hotels Nearby" feature in our booking engine is a great way to double-check that you’re getting the best possible deal in your chosen destination. Sometimes there are pleasant surprises, like finding a cheaper hotel 1.4 miles away on a private island.

A high altitude flyover is the fastest way to find 5-star hotels and resorts. As you zoom down to lower altitudes, Magic Carpet adds additional hotels to the map.

VResorts.com takes its name from Virtual Reality (VR) tours of popular travel destinations. Tap a camera icon on the map to explore one of more than 50 Visitor Guides. Browse panoramic VR photography and travel tips, and follow links to recommended hotels near the white sand beach in the picture.

We believe Magic Carpet has the potential to completely change the way you shop for travel, in ways beyond its primary purpose of helping you find and book hotel rooms in your desired destination. Magic Carpet is designed to work in conjunction with Kindle Fire travel e-books, so watch for a series of "Magic Carpet Travel Guides" from Fingerpress.co.uk.
