Introduction

If you have plans to travel in the near future we have a helpful tool that may just be able to make your trip that much more enjoyable. The PocketGuide app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone and gives users plenty of information regarding some of the most popular cities in the world to visit. Discover such information as the top attractions, must-see sights, insider tips and information, and so much more. With this app you won’t have to worry about missing out on a fabulous experience because it will provide all the knowledge you need.

Informative Insider Details

This app provides you with insider details that can really transform the way you travel. In fact it can take a rather dull destination and turn it into something incredible thanks to all the hidden gems, attractions, and sights it can inform you of. Now here's the coolest part about this app - it is an audio guide which makes it convenient to refer to even if you're walking around touring the city. There is no need to keep looking at your screen because the app uses GPS to locate you and then provide you with all information that relates to where you are.

The best iPad apps for booking hotels

In the most recent update of this app there was a bug fix so that there are no longer problems loading tours. The app currently has 4.5 out of five stars from customers. The app is free to download but then you will need to purchase the city guide that you want. The guides are all priced at $5.99, which seems extremely reasonable for the amount of content you get.

The User Experience

I find the user experience to be very smooth and extremely helpful. Content loads extremely fast and after you purchase the guide it's available to you in offline mode. If you happen to be traveling overseas it's great to know you won't be looking at roaming charges just to view the information. It even offers an offline map so you can figure out such things as where to shop, drink, eat, visit, and stay. The themed tours are pretty cool as well and can provide you some great ideas and ways to enjoy these wonderful cities. All you have to do is pick your tour and then follow along with it.

The user interface is well-designed with all the tools you need within reach at the bottom of the screen. You can keep a diary, view photos, check out what's nearby, and a whole lot more.
