TripAdvisor Brings Its Free Mobile City Guides to the iPhone

Last month, TripAdvisor launched its free Mobile City Guide apps for the Android for 20 popular world cities. Today, we’re excited to announce that we’re bringing this same destination content to the iPhone with our Mobile City Guide app in the Apple App Store.

The new app, with downloadable information for 20 popular world cities, offers you quick smartphone access to detailed destination content, including traveller reviews and opinions on hotels, restaurants and attractions, as well as interactive walking tours and suggested itineraries. Information from the app is available even when you’re offline, making it especially useful when you’re travelling abroad, since you can download the app before you go and avoid expensive roaming charges.

The Mobile City Guide app is automatically synced with the freshest TripAdvisor content available so you can access the latest traveller reviews and opinions while on the go.  Additionally, each of the Mobile City Guides offers walking tours and insider tips that can be viewed on the app without a data connection, including in-depth information on neighbourhoods, history, culture, architecture, weather and transportation.

TripAdvisor Mobile City Guides are available through the app for the following destinations: Amsterdam, Barcelona, Beijing, Berlin, Boston, Chicago, Florence, Hong Kong, Hawaii, Las Vegas, London, Los Angeles, New York City, Orlando, Paris, Rome, San Francisco, Sydney, Tokyo, and Washington D.C.

The TripAdvisor Mobile City Guide app is available for free in the Apple App Store, and is also available as a standalone app for each city in the Android Market. More information about the TripAdvisor Mobile City Guides can be found at www.tripadvisor.com/CityGuide.
