The popular travel guide publisher Fodor’s announced recently that they will be providing a series of city guides as mobile apps for iOS. These new apps are free for the first time. Apps from the Fodor’s Travel imprint offer solid information and recommendations for tourist attractions, eating entertainment, and other travel information. Now you can get around foreign cities without carrying a physical travel book.
The new versions of Fodor’s apps are available for New York, San Francisco, London, Paris, Rome, and Barcelona. In addition to the information you’d usually expect to find in a travel book, the apps allow you to search venues by price, see what’s nearby, bookmark your favorite spots, add field notes, and download maps before you travel so that you can access them online without paying for data roaming.
