By GPSmyCity.com, Inc.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Thousands of travel articles, offline city maps, and self-guided walking tours in 600+ cities.
On GPSmyCity you can read thousands of inspiring travel articles written by travel writers and locals from all over the world. The GPSmyCity app – apart from offering interesting travel stories and insider tips on the destinations you plan to visit, it also guides you to the points of interest described in the articles courtesy of the included offline maps and GPS navigation assistance. Also part of this app are the city maps and self-guided walking tours for cities worldwide. All the articles and city guides included in this app operate offline without any need of 3G/4G data plan or Internet connection, so you need not worry about expensive roaming when traveling abroad.
The highlights and main features of the app include:
* Thousands of travel articles included.
* Detailed offline city maps for hundreds of cities worldwide.
* Location bookmarking on map.
* Touring routes clearly displayed on map.
* Precise turn-by-turn walking directions from one sight to another.
* The "FindMe" feature displaying your exact location plus Auto Tracking feature displaying your movement on the map, so you always know if you are moving in the right direction (this feature is not supported by iPod Touch and iPad WiFi-only models).
* All walking tours are fully functional in an offline mode, thus no data plan or roaming is needed when traveling to foreign destinations.
* Ability to create your own self-guided walking tours.
This revolutionary application makes bus tours obsolete. You no longer need to hop on a tour bus or join a tour group; now you can explore all of the best attractions on your own, at your own pace, and at a cost that is only a fraction of what you would normally pay for a guided tour.
Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. This app gives you the option to turn off the GPS tracking in the background to prolong the battery life.

This app shows you what to see in a city and how to get there
For each city that it covers, this app provides detailed information about the significant sites and locations. It is presented in the form of theme-based articles, such as "10 Most Important Sites" or "Best Places to Eat," which have been written by experienced travel journalists. The articles are detailed with numerous photos. For each city, there is an off-line map, which shows the locations of the sites discussed in the articles (as well as many other sites) and your location. If you upgrade to the full version, the maps will display the routes that are discussed in the articles.
Since I would like to consider using this app for future trips, I wanted a way to test it. My wife and I travelled to Vienna and Prague last fall, so I looked at these two cities with this app. All of the sites that we visited were discussed in the various travel articles and were displayed on the maps. I wish that I had known about this app before our trip. It would have been very helpful for planning the trip, as well as locating the sites while we were there.
The only complaint I have is that the maps do not zoom in as much as I would like. However, they are are still adequate for locating the sites.
A must-have app for travelers!
I am a frequent traveler and travel blogger and can't praise the GPSmyCity app enough. When I find myself in a new destination, unsure of what to see and do, this app is a life saver! It offers such a wide variety of destinations and highlights unique attractions that you won't find in any guide book. The upgrade feature that allows you to follow along travel articles in real time offline is awesome! It's like having a personal tour guide in the palm of your hand! I definitely recommend!
I have installed this app a while ago and all I can say is it's here to stay. The compilation of articles is very useful - a well curated selection of recent writings in one place. I like the UI, it's easy and friendly. I used it mainly as a local trying to find new places to explore. I definitely recommend a try. Good job guys!
