Thrilled to announce that GPSmyCity selected three more of my very own blog articles, to turn into apps with GPS Maps, for iTunes and Google Play.

Try before you buy, absolutely free!

As an introduction to this travel concept, we’re giving away three article apps!

Just click one of the following three links or images.

Once downloaded, you don’t need Internet access to view these super helpful articles on your travels.

What you get

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 hard to write my blogs objectively. If I have a great experience, then this is what you read. Although, I won’t gloss over a not-so-great experience. So, this will save you precious angst and expense during your holiday.

Summary of main features and highlights

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

  • GPS-guided city walks – “lose yourself without getting lost”
  • Work offline – no Roaming or Data Plan needed
  • Multiple walks in each city – see famous sights and hidden gems
  • Detailed walk route map – Turn-by-turn walking directions

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 while you hold your folded-out crinkled city map. Spot the tourist springs to mind! Instead, blend in with locals and be at ease, while 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 or Android. GPSmyCity makes bus tours virtually obsolete.

Check out more than 10,000 self-guided walking tours for over 1,000 cities around the Globe at GPSmyCity. 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 several of my posts into apps with GPS Maps. Download these apps for free, or pay for a subscription. Read further to check for giveaways, but be quick as this only lasts for one week!

Why would I bother with GPSmyCity?

You may be asking yourself this exact question. Why, when you can 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 the GPSmyCity app, you can create your very own walking tours independently or stick to well-tried available tours provided in the article.

Why hop on a time-restrictive, typically expensive, a tour bus with a bunch of other tourists? Instead, enjoy a city walk at you’re own pace and how you prefer to explore a new or old destination?

With the GPSmyCity app, this is possible and at a fraction of the price that you’ll pay for a guided tour.

How does it work?

Each article is an individual app that you can download for free. An article’s app uses your iPhone or Android’s GPS tracking to chart how you’re going as you venture along your planned path. And, makes sure that you don’t get lost while exploring.

GPSmyCity allows you to download any travel article app for free. You can then read the article at your leisure, without needing access to the Internet or Wi-Fi. 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 while on holidays, right?

Why upgrade an article?

As with most upgrades that provide additional valuable features, there are many reasons to take the GPSmyCity free travel app further. Upgrade to:

  • see all sights in an article on an offline map
  • get a travel article’s site route – provided by foot, car, and bicycle
  • navigation assistance to guide you from one sight to the next
  • bookmark a location on the map
  • touring routes are displayed clearly on the map
  • precise turn-by-turn walking directions from one site to another, which includes accurate turn-by-turn navigation
  • have fun creating your private 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 and more great features!

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

Disclaimer: I like to keep my blog completely transparent so letting you know that if you do decide to upgrade one of my downloaded travel articles, GPSmyCity provides me with a small kickback. Although this won’t make me rich, I hope that it helps to offset costs against maintaining my Travel and Photography blog – many thanks. 🙂
