A very cool FREE iPhone app, called My South Africa Essentials (iTunes Link), which is targeted at international visitors to the country, has recently been launched on the App Store.
From what I can see the app was developed by CNN Mobile for South African Tourism. The app is awesome and provides a fantastic outlook on our country with images which you can download, as well as submit. There is also full info on all the World Cup Host cities around the country, as well as tips on what to do and what not to do. You can also send a generated postcard using your images on your phone. The app will be a winner for the FIFA World Cup coming up in a few weeks time.
Here is a bit more info & a couple of screen shots from the app store:
