mTrip launches a new generation of travel guides for iPhone and iPod Touch
Friday 16, July 2010
mTrip Travel Guides for iPhone & iPod Touch hit the App store with nine US and European city guides. Just like a personal tour guide, mTrip is there for you from planning your itinerary to guiding you around the entire city and describing tourist attractions, restaurants, hotels and more to you.
“Travel preparation, sightseeing and trip sharing are completely re-defined with the arrival of travel applications. Apps should support the traveler in a quick and easy way with rich, updated information and clever offline functionalities for the most optimal trip experience. With this first series of city guides, we have brought together expert content, travelers feedback and the latest technologies available on the market,” says Frederic de Pardieu, CEO and Founder of mTrip. “We want travelers to remain stress-free, enjoy discovering new attractions and almost forget that they are even using a guide,” says de Pardieu.
Available City Guides:
London, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Rome, Barcelona, New York, San Francisco and Chicago
English, French, German, Spanish and Italian (Italian available for European cities only)
Price per destination:
$5.99 – $9.99

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
