[prMac.com] Montreal, (QC) Canada - Spring travel is underway and what better time for mobile travel guide company, mTrip to launch seven new intelligent travel guides for iPhone, iPod and Android. The new city guides will help tourists find their way around Stockholm, Sao Paulo, Bangkok, Budapest, Prague Dubai and Hong Kong.
For travelers who want to go mobile for their spring trips and deeply immerse themselves in the culture of the cities they are visiting, the new guides will include insider information on what each city has to offer. By using the mTrip Genius to find off-the-beaten-path places to visit, travelers can build itineraries that showcase the best hidden gems of the cities they are visiting.
The apps are location-aware and include offline interactive maps, which are dotted with places to visit like attractions, restaurants, bars and shopping destinations. With reviews of sites to see and places to eat, editorial content as well as trip planning and sharing, mTrip offers a fresh new approach to seeing the sights of a city without looking like a lost tourist in a foreign locale.
Created with the traveler in mind, the mTrip apps free the user of any roaming fees. The editorial content is pre-loaded, while the maps are showcased in an offline format. With the augmented reality feature, travelers need not worry because the app knows a users position via GPS and can display where POIs are by pulling in information from the mTrip guide. If new updates can be made to the app, like postcards in the queue or traveler-generated reviews or points of interest, the traveler just has to wait for a WIFI connection to automatically sync the new data to the app.
Just in time for spring travel, mTrip is happy to offer these seven new travel guides for customers going mobile for their upcoming trips. For more information on mTrip or the new city guides, please visit the mTrip website or contact us for press inquiries.
