Lighthouses of the Baleric Islands — the app series for the iPad

Lighthouses of the Balearic Islands is a well designed and informative app series for all lighthouse fans, photographers, yachtsmen, sailors, Majorca holidaymakers, hikers and for many others. The app series is combined with a free Photo Sharing web service in which users can share their own photos of lighthouses.

The app series introduces all relevant lighthouses of the Balearic Islands. For each lighthouse the apps shows several impressive photos which were taken by the photographer Helmut Kraus (DGPh) from land or from sea.

On three panels the apps show detailed information on the featured lighthouse.

  • Map panel: An animated beacon marks the location of the lighthouse on the map. With a tip on the map the lighthouses position is shown in Google Maps. Additionally the apps give journey tips.
  • Lighthouse data panel: This panel shows in a neatly arranged way all technical specifications contained in the official lists of lights and fog signals.
  • Info panel: Here you get background information on the history and the technology of the lighthouse.

The main island map shows all lighthouses and their names, in the night view the beacons are animated. A tip on the name opens the lighthouse screen. The lighthouses can also be selected from an alphabetical list or from a list with the international numbers.

All texts in the apps are in German and in English.

The Complete Edition of Lighthouses of the Balearic Islands includes 32 lighthouses from all Balearic Islands and a total of 183 photos. You can also purchase separate apps for Majorca, Menorca or Ibiza + Formentera (see in the menu on the right).
We offer a free version which presents 6 of the lighthouses. The free version gives an insight into all features before you purchase the app.


The start screen leads you to the main islands and their lighthouses.
