One of the easiest ways to get around Paris is by Metro but it can be a pretty confusing system to navigate for tourists. The Paris By Metro app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone is the perfect Paris app to arm yourself with if you're planning to visit Paris or are a new resident of the city.
The Paris By Metro app is really a full-feature tool that goes above and beyond just offering users a variety of maps. This app helps you get around the city and even the suburbs with ease thanks to the route planners, the in-depth maps, travel tips for tourists, and even a currency converter.
There's no need to cart around large and cumbersome maps and guidebooks instead you can just use your mobile device as your travel planner. Find all the information you need regarding the subway, train, and trams in the city. As you're looking at the maps you can zoom out and in as you like making it even more user-friendly.
The app was updated over the summer with a few minor bug fixes. It doesn't have a customer rating at this point but its customer comments are very positive. Users love how much information it offers, the fact it can save a lot of time and hassle, and that it's so easy to use.
How it Helps
The Paris By Metro app can help you in a number of ways but basically it allows you to navigate through the city just as a resident would instead of getting lost at every corner and crossing.
You've got the option of viewing just one line at a time or the entire Metro system when it comes to the tram, trains, and subway. Don't worry, there is no need to have an Internet connection to use it.
The app provides users with a listing of all the top attractions so you can also set up the fastest and most convenient route to these locations.
As mentioned there are also tourist tips that can prove invaluable to anyone visiting the city. The currency converter is just one of those tools you may not think much of but once you're there you'll probably make good use of it. As for the user interface, you can expect a clean and well-laid-out offering.
