The popularity of smartphones and widespread access to mobile internet removed earlier barriers to reliance on mobile applications run on visitors’ own devices for guidance in tourist attractions. At the same time, the tourists’ rising expectations call for solutions that can increase their engagement and satisfaction, such as gamification. Despite the availability of platforms for both general-purpose gamification and configurable eguides, until now, there have not been any ready-made solutions of this kind supporting the implementation of gamification for eguides. In this paper, we would like to present a solution filling this gap: the eMused.eu Application Programming Interface, which can be used by mobile applications (web or native) to access both tour content and gamification functionality provided on a cloud.
