[prMac.com] Karur, India - Designed for anyone visiting Paris, Mallow Technologies today is thrilled to announce the newly updated version of its popular Paris By Metro app, bringing easy-to-use maps of the city's subway, trains, and trams to both the iPhone and iPad. Paris By Metro can help users save time and money with detailed transit maps, route planners, currency conversion, and travel tips.
"You can leave your heavy guidebook and hard-to-read maps at home. The Paris By Metro app will help you see more of the city and suburbs without getting lost," said Kamalavel Rajendran, Executive Director of Mallow Technologies. "It's the easy to use app that no traveler should be without."
Useful for both vacationers and business travelers, Paris By Metro features detailed maps for the Metro (subway), RER (train), and tram. Users can see the whole Metro or any one line and view transfers to the train, tram, or other lines. The app even works without a data connection, such as underground or with roaming turned off.
Paris By Metro shows the best ways to get around the city. Need the fastest route? Want to minimize walking? Users can simply tell Paris By Metro where they are and where they want to go, and the app shows the best travel plan. This feature is especially helpful for getting to Paris' most famous sights and the airport quickly.
Paris By Metro also lists the city's top attractions such as the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre museum in one place, along with the best Metro stops to get there and the official websites to click for more information.
"With Paris By Metro, you can get around Paris like a local," Kamalavel Rajendran said. "You will be able to see more of the city's incredible sights without spending money on taxis or wasting time in traffic."
There are dozens of transit stations in Paris and its suburbs, and the Paris By Metro app gives vital details on each one. Travelers can choose any station and easily see the important travel information to help get where they are going. They can also add frequently visited stations to the favorites list for quick recall.
More than just maps, Paris By Metro also helps tourists enjoy their trip more by giving important travel tips. For example, the app includes helpful information on traveling to and from the airport (Charles de Gaulle or Orly) and details on the tickets or passes needed to ride the Metro, train, and tram.
The currency converter will show prices in any of 61 popular currencies, including the US dollar, Japanese yen, British pound, Swiss franc, and more. Exchange rates are updated every 8 hours when the iPhone or iPad has a connection but the tool continues to work even while offline.
