GPSmyCity – My City Guides in a Mobile App

We use various travel apps to plan our trips, but then we rely on map apps to guide us through the destination and the spots we’d like to see. However, to make your travels stress-free and avoid having a few different mobile apps, I teamed up with GPSmyCity to turn some of my best city guide posts into digital travel guide apps. In the end, I also explain how you can get the premium version of the app for free.

What is a GPSmyCity app?

Imagine a scenario. You are a reader of my blog and decided to go on a trip exploring one of the cities I describe in my blog. You can’t remember everything I talk about or can’t have tons of notes.

Yes, you can save it for offline reading on your browser or screenshot the spot, but why go to so much trouble when you can have everything under your fingertips on your mobile? This is where GPSmyCity and its digital travel guide come in.

This whole concept is new. As most people are shifting from paper to mobile, those digital travel guides enable us to explore a city hustle-free. Wonder how? Let me explain.

You can download them onto your mobile for free and read them offline for free anywhere you want, be it on an airplane, at the beach, on public transport, or wherever! The most significant advantage of having them is upgrading for a small fee to enable GPS-guided mode.

Those articles have GPS coordinates embedded in them, so if you want to visit the same spot I mentioned in the post or the hidden gem that’s a bit hard to find, you can easily follow the route by clicking the Go There button next to the landmark I explained (see the screenshots below). The app will plan your way from the place you stand at that moment and show you walking, driving, or cycling instructions!

And did I mention that the GPS-guided version works offline? So no more roaming or local sim cards are necessary.

How does the GPSmyCity app work?

The digital travel guide is available on both GooglePlay and AppStore. All you have to do is to download the GPSmyCity app and register with your email. Afterward, you’ll need to search for the destination you are planning to go to. The app will show all the articles and walking routes of that city. When you find the article, press Map to save it to your downloaded folder. Once finished downloading, you can see the spots mentioned in the article on the map.

What’s the price of GPSmyCity?

As I said, downloading any article on the GPSmyCity app is free. The only cost you’ll have is if you decide to update for its additional GPS-guided routes. The annual subscription is $18.99, which gives you full access to all the guides and travel articles of more than 1,500 cities worldwide.

Which of my digital travel guides can you find in the app?

We have now turned 24 of my blog posts into GPS-guided digital travel guides on GPSmyCity. However, we are working on bringing you more content in the upcoming months.
