On most of the major trips I’ve taken, I’ve let someone else do the planning. Part of the reason is that I get information overload. How do I pick what to do, what tours to go on, where to eat? I love the idea of someone doing this for me (sadly it’s not usually a paid travel agent but more likely a friend or loved one who actually gets off on all this planning). What’s more is that I’m a terrible bookmarker. I don’t know what it is, but I just won’t bookmark pages related to a destination on my phone to use while I’m there.
The creators of GPYMyCity, which offers 5,000 city walk apps for upwards of 500 cities around the globe, had all this in mind when they developed their travel article apps. These travel article apps contain more detailed information about a given city, such as food, things to do and entertainment. The articles can be downloaded for free and accessed offline—which means you can actually have all the places you want to visit in a given location sorted out in advance. I repeat: No Internet required (how great for plane reading?). And also, no bookmarking. No printing stuff out. No relying on your poor friend to do all the work for you because you’re a lazy planner (ahem).
If you want to more extensively plan your trip to a given city, you can upgrade for a nominal free to get an offline map showing points of interest mentioned in the article. When you’re in your destination city, your upgraded articles will link to your GPS so you can easily navigate to all of the places included.
I’m happy to announce that one of my blog posts, Top 5 Must-Dos When You Have 24 Hours in Perth, is available for a free upgrade for a limited time beginning today (August 29, 2016) and ending next week (September 5, 2016).
To get a free upgraded version of my article, click on the link and then follow the instructions to download the GPSMyCity app if you haven’t already done so. The page for the article app will appear and you can hit “Upgrade” to have the article automatically link to an offline map and the GPS navigator.
Happy reading and navigating!
