Oh ‘appy days: Now you can take me with you wherever you go!
If you’re anything like me, the key to a good trip is preparation preparation preparation. But sometimes I also need to do some research on the go. What if the weather’s not as expected? What if an attraction’s closed and I’m looking for an alternative? What’s within walking distance to where I am? And then I need to connect to Wi-Fi, or use up all my data… If only I had all those useful travel articles that I’d read beforehand at my fingertips…
That’s where GPSmyCity comes in handy. Download the app free of charge and you can carry a whole library of travel articles around with you. Save the articles you want and you can access them anywhere on- or off-line…no more packing a heavy guidebook or two in your suitcase (throw in an extra pair of shoes instead!), this is the lightweight, in-your-pocket option. And for a tiny fee, you’ll get offline GPS-guided use too, so there’s no need to stand on a street corner juggling a map looking confused…
