Lose Yourself Without Getting Lost.
This handy application presents you several self-guided walks featuring the best of the city, from world famous attractions to hidden gems. There simply is no better way to see a city on foot, at your own pace and at a cost that is only a fraction of what you would normally pay for a guided tour.
This app comes with a detailed and fully functional city map to help you explore the city and locate the sights of interest. City map functions included in this app are: street name and business (restaurants, cafes, etc.), search, location bookmarking, `Findme` (iPhone and iPad 3/4G model), movement tracking (iPhone and iPad 3/4G model), and more. You can track your steps, take photos along the way, and then share your tracks and photos with friends.

No Data Plan or Internet is Needed, and No Roaming either. All the data used in this app is built into the software, so there is no need for internet access or cellular data plan. No need to pay costly roaming charges when traveling to foreign cities. The app works with your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.
All the navigation features related to the city walks are disabled in this Lite version, which means that you can view the walk details (sight descriptions and photos), but NO navigation assistance is provided to guide you from one sight to the next. Download the Lite version if you want to use the city map or learn about the city walks. However, if you want to join the walks, it is highly recommended that you download a Full Version of this app. The Full Version includes detailed walk route maps to guide you from one sight to the next.

Ratings and Reviews
Mass produced outsider-ware - but at least it's honest
Honestly, there are a lot of exciting and famous tours and self guided rambles in Edinburgh, from themed pub tours to ghost walks to historical. This 'app' I'm afraid looks as if it was compiled by an outsider using Wiki and online maps. Since they do '200 cities worldwide' this is quite possibly the case. Another app in the over-inflated travel app market. It is, however, more honest than most. The lite version is free. And although the authors have maybe never been to Edinburgh they have provided a map and accurately added material that could be derived from the web. It is not the blatant rip off of many travel apps. So maybe worthwhile if you are a lazy visitor and would rather use your iphone than pop into the Tourist Information Centre, scour the Internet, or use the free leaflets at the airport. Nice try - it works - just needs local knowledge.
