You often travel, as I do, and you’re always looking for new ways to improve your experience. In many cases, the best mobile app is all that’s needed to make your trip go smoothly. GPSmyCity is the first GPS-powered travel encyclopedia in the world.

GPSmyCity is designed for the 21st-century traveler. It combines the best of traditional online travel articles with GPS navigation technology to bring your holiday or world exploration experience to a new level. This app is an excellent addition to the constantly changing landscape of travel-related content.

This simple yet clever iOS travel app has thousands of articles and city tours. It is available on iTunes. Written by locals and travel writers from around the globe, it’s a great resource for travelers. The best part is that the tool does not use traditional travel articles. Instead, it uses GPS-enabled content. This includes offline digital maps and coordinates for the attractions suggested by the authors.

Its clever software lets users turn their favorite travel stories into personalized tour guides. You need to choose your next destination, then browse through listings about various travel topics.

There are currently more than 600 travel articles on the GPSmyCity App. They cover more than 750 cities worldwide. Each article can be downloaded as a free mobile app so you can read it offline, whether at the airport, beach, or anywhere else you don’t have internet access. This makes the app extremely useful for backpackers, campers and outdoor enthusiasts, business people and families traveling together.

Being a tech-savvy traveler, I depend on my smartphone for almost everything. I know how frustrating it can be not to have access to the internet when you most need it. Apps that work offline and online are my favorite. They save me time, money and hassle, as I don’t have to use up data each time I check out a small detail.

GPSmyCity: Walks, Articles, and Offline Maps – Internet and data connectivity are not issues with GPSmyCity. The app is both offline and online, allowing users to access travel information on the go.

For an additional $1.99, you can make the article a GPS-activated guide using your smartphone’s built GPS. Premium versions of the article can identify your current location and direct you to any attraction/venue mentioned by the author.

Walks and Articles with Offline Maps have endless resources to suit your interests. Everything is covered, including self-guided walking tours, restaurant guides, cultural landmarks, shopping highlights and many other hidden gems you might not have found on your own.

This iPhone app allows travelers to explore cities in their own time. I know that I do. Guided tours are a great option for some people. Still, there is nothing quite like exploring a foreign city alone, wandering through alleyways that lead to charming piazzas and taking in the architecture.

GPSmyCity launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. The funds raised will be used to double the destination coverage, from 750 to 1,500 city covers, and make the app available on Android devices.

Anyone who supports the crowdfunding campaign will be eligible to receive a lifetime membership for 1% of the current market value. Instead of spending $6000 on each article in the app, you can pledge $60 to get full access to the entire encyclopedia, which is continuously growing.
