Whenever I plan my next trip, I spend a lot of time reading about my destination. I’m constantly on the lookout for helpful articles about what to see, where to eat and where to shop. Sometimes you come across the perfect destination guide and the best you can do is to either print it out or bookmark it and try to search for the places the article talks about on Google Maps. This can be really troublesome and what if you would like to read the article again but you have no data or free wifi?
Well, the guys at GPSMyCity are here to help. If you’re not familiar with their app, be sure to check it out as it has amazing maps of city walk you can use offline! Yes people, offline. That is not all. Many of their city walks are now accompanied by related travel articles that are GPS-guided and some of my most popular city guides are now also available with this feature. You can also download the articles and read them offline later – no more worries about your internet data.
This is so cool! How do I get it?
Firstly, you have to get the GPSMyCity app on your iOS device from the itunes store. You’ll find City Walk maps for over 600 cities and accompanied by even more helpful articles. You can download the articles for free and keep it for later. If you want to download the accompanying map of the article, you’ll have to make a small in app purchase for it (about $1) and voila, you’re set up with your own cool destination article guide!
Four of my most popular posts has been turned into article guide apps in collaboration with GPSMyCity and to celebrate, I am giving away my Harajuku and Omotesando Guide article app away for free! This will be for a limited time only (a week after the launch) so that you can check out the awesome functionality of the apps for yourself.
