A More Informed Way to Travel
I normally lug around travel guides with me. I find that knowing what you’re looking at adds great value to visiting a new place. However, I’ve found a way to access great information while traveling, without even using the internet.
GPSmyCity publishes android apps which feature articles written by journalists and bloggers all around the world. Each article is its own app; therefore, you can access the articles without internet. If you’re on a plane you can research your destination. Make the most of your travel time without paying for data roaming. You can save the articles you like and come back to them without trying to remember the name of the blog or website they were on.
Tips from Locals
I find that advice from travel bloggers is more interesting and insightful than guide books. The problem is that there are so many blogs and sites with great information that it’s difficult to keep track of it all.
With GPSmyCity you can search for articles by destination. It can serve as your personal tour guide. The app has GPS technology, at a cost of a couple euros, that allows you to find destinations and track your wanderings in real time. You won’t get lost and you won’t have to stand on a corner with an inconspicuous map in your hand.
Be Your Own Guide
There are over 700 cities worldwide currently covered on the app. The articles/walks cover a diverse range of topics such as history, gourmet visits and key places to see. Each city walk or travel article comes with a travel route plotted on an offline map. These guide you to famous attractions, monuments, and interesting sights, as well as hidden gems, as if you had brought along a local guide. No need to hop on a tour bus or join a tour group!
To access GPS-guided travel articles from your phone:
Click on a link below for the article you are interested in. After downloading the app, you will be directed to the article, where you can choose UPGRADE to get the GPS-guided version.
For a limited time, I’ll be offering the GPS upgraded version of “Delicious Eats in Fort Lauderdale, Florida” for free. That way, you can see how it works and how useful the app can be!
