We recently discovered a great way of exploring a new city through so-called GPS-guided travel articles. We are happy to announce that some of our own posts have been turned into apps and can be downloaded for free or upgraded for a small fee!
These articles are composed by traveler writers (like us) and locals who give their recommendations of things to see and places to visit. Within the article there are embedded GPS coordinates that allow you to navigate through the city and find the mentioned spots and sights to see. The GPSMyCity App is an absolutely great way of combining the stories and insider tips of travelers who have been there with a self-guided tour of all the relevant locations.
What are the benefits of GPS guided travel articles?
A great benefit of using such an app is that you can explore the city at your own pace and time and this without any internet connection! All the articles and city guides can be used offline. You can download the app for free to your IOS device, enabling you to access the articles offline and read them pretty much everywhere you want. You can then chose to upgrade to get a GPS-guided version of the tour which shows you an offline map with all the relevant points of interest. A ‘find me’ feature will display your exact location and guide you towards the right direction.
There are thousands of articles of many hundred different cities from around the world. Its pretty much like having your own personal tour guide with all the flexibility of moving around according to your own pace and time.
Upgraded App Giveaway
There are two ways to access article apps on your IOS device. Either you click on the link at the end of this blog (if you haven’t already downloaded the free GPSmyCity app, you will be a prompted to do so). Or, you directly go to the app where you can browse by city to see which articles are available. You can then download the article for free or upgrade for offline use and GPS tracking for just $1.99.
From September 5 till September 11 we will be offering a FREE upgrade of one of our city guides so that you can see how the app works. Below you can find the post:

I agree, GPS has a great benefit on exploring the city on our own. It’s much better if it is upgraded too.
