If you’re anything like me, you have found that group day tours are a necessary evil sometimes. You also don’t like to wander around a new place flashing a guide book or one of those skimpy tourist brochures. But what if I told you there was another option? Have you ever considered using an app on your next trip? Read on to find out more!
How Can An App Be Of Use?
As long as you have a smartphone with GPS, you can use an app to help you with your sightseeing. This app in particular is called GPSmyCity and it provides self-guided city walks and travel articles for over 1000 cities around the world! Once you’ve downloaded the app onto your phone or your tablet, there is no more need for those annoying brochures or guide books or a human guide. Within each article or city walk, there is an offline map that plots the route to all the sights mentioned. You follow the route, read the details within the article for site information, and voila! Your smartphone has become your guide!
But Why GPSmyCity Specifically?
What is great about this particular app is that all the travel articles and city walks can operate offline so you don’t need to worry about using up your data or incurring roaming fees. You don’t even need wifi once you’ve downloaded what you need. That’s right! No data plan or wifi needed! Other great features include the ability to bookmark locations on the map, “FindMe” and “Auto Tracking” features that show your location as you move about, and the capability to create walking tours for yourself as you see fit.
How do I get started?
You can download any travel article from GPSmyCity free of charge. This allows you to read the article whenever you want: at home, on the road, or in the air! If you decide you want the article to be GPS-guided, all you need to do is pay a small fee to upgrade ($1.99). It’s easy! It’s super-cheap!
