Summary of main features and highlights

You’ll love the following main features, which by no means is everything that you can enjoy:

What is a GPS-guided travel article App?

A new concept in travel by GPSmyCity, which believes that you should “lose yourself without getting lost”!

A comforting thought? Don’t stick out like a confused, vulnerable tourist whilst holding your folded-out crinkled city map. Spot the tourist springs to mind! Instead, blend in with locals and be at ease, whilst you explore a new city at your own pace.

You can now experience self-guided walking tours and explore cities on foot at your leisure, using apps on your iOS (Android in a future release). GPSmyCity makes bus tours virtually obsolete.

Check out GPSmyCity’s more than 6,500 self-guided walking tours, for over 1,000 cities around the Globe…just pick a city and go!

Immerse yourself in inspiring travel articles written by locals and travel writers from all corners of the world. Travel stories and insider tips for your destination, guide you to unmissable sights in the article.

You won’t kick yourself later for missing sights, or feel lost whilst wasting precious holiday time.

I am also pleased to announce that GPSmyCity has turned some of my posts into apps with GPS Maps. Download these apps for free, or pay for an upgrade. Read further to check for giveaways, but be quick as this only last for one week!

Why would I bother with GPSmyCity?

You may be asking yourself this exact question when you can perhaps read a similar article on a website for free, or read my travel and photography blog for free.

What you need to know is that with this App, you can create your own walking tours independently or stick to well-tried available tours, provided in the article.

Why hop on a time-restrictive, typically expensive, tour bus with a bunch of other tourists, when you can enjoy a city walk at you’re own pace and in the way you prefer exploring a new or old destination?

Now with the GPSmyCity App, this is totally possible and at a fraction of the price for a guided tour!

How does it work?

Each article is an individual App that you can download for free. Article Apps use your iPhone’s GPS tracking to chart how you’re going as you venture along your planned path, making sure you don’t get lost whilst exploring.

GPSmyCity allows you to download any travel article app for free so you can read the article at your leisure, without needing access to the Internet or wi-fi. So, whether you’re in a bus, plane, boat, city museum, meandering along, or in a park planning your next exciting adventure, you have access to your article.

Apps work completely offline and without 3G connection or a data plan. Another excellent bonus is that no roaming charges apply when you travel overseas. We all want to save money whilst on holidays, right?

Why upgrade an article?

As with most upgrades, which provide additional valuable features, there are many reasons to take the GPSmyCity’s free travel app further, by upgrading:

  • See all sights in an article on an offline map.
  • Get travel routes to the sights in an article. Routes are provided by foot, car, and bicycle.
  • Navigation assistance to guide you from one sight to the next.
  • Bookmark a location on the map.
  • Clearly displayed touring routes on the map.
  • Precise turn-by-turn walking directions from one sight to another, which includes precise turn-by-turn navigation.
  • Have fun creating your own self-guided walking tours.
  • Access to the FindMe feature, which displays your exact location.
  • Always know that you are moving in the right direction, with access to the Auto Tracking feature.
  • No annoying advertisements to distract you from planning.
  • More great features!

At USD$1.99 to upgrade for a GPS-guided article, it’s cheap! If you’re used to buying Travel Guides, then you’ll know that this is super cheap.

Want FREE App giveaways?

I’m thrilled to announce that GPSmyCity selected several of my very own blog posts to turn into apps with GPS Maps.

Try before you buy, absolutely free!

As an introduction to this travel concept, we’re giving away three article apps! From the 26th June – 3rd July, you can upgrade the following apps for FREE; just click an image below.

When you upload one of my articles, you get insight to free sights, discover cheaper cafes and restaurants, transportation tips, and much more. Feel comfortable in knowing that I try very hard to write my blogs objectively, so if I’ve had a great experience, then this is what you’ll read. I won’t gloss over a not-so-great experience so this will save you precious angst and expense, during your holiday.
