City Guides app review: New York, London, Los Angeles, and more 2021

Reviews

Introduction

Based on hand-picked recommendations by Gwyneth Paltrow, City Guides app for iPhone and iPad is a wonderful addition to the Travel category of the App Store which contains loads of things for you and your friends to do in major cities, with unique insights into culture, history, and loads more.

There seems to be a wide variety of ‘things to do’ iOS apps, and I really like the idea behind this multiple city guides app because it certainly caters to a particular type of person while comparable travel utilities are left with a boring, generic collection of content.

Check out our city guide for iPhone app review to find out all that this app has to offer and see how it compares to the best city guide apps for iPhone and iPad users.
