[prMac.com] Las Vegas, Nevada - GPSmyCity.com, Inc., an iPhone software company based in Las Vegas, announces MyCityAntiquing 1.0, a new iOS app designed for travelers to hunt for antiques on their next trip. After downloading the app from iTunes, users will be able to search for antique marketplaces (antique shops, fairs, auction houses, etc.) in over 70 cities worldwide. Users can then dig deeper and discover what types of antiques are available at each location. Every entry includes not only information on available antiques, but also a brief description, hours of operation, and contact details. Ratings and comments left by other users are also an excellent way to learn more about the different shops, fairs, and auction houses.
Once users have decided where they want to begin their antique hunt, they can quickly pinpoint the location of the store on MyCityAntiquing's easy-to-read map. Not only that, users can even create self-guided walking tours to visit multiple antique stores on a single route.
The app is a mobile companion of the web-based MyCityAntiquing.org, a Wiki project, and content is provided by contributors from all over the world. The app is designed to work offline so iPhone, iPod touch and iPad owners can use the app without fear of having to pay roaming or data plan charges. The basic version of the app is free, while the premium version, which comes with a GPS navigation aid and feature for creating culinary walking tours, costs $1.99 per city.
So many side streets and so little time. When traveling in a new city it can be difficult to find the tucked-away antique shops off the main tourist boulevards. Antique shops are hard to find, because often the ones with the greatest treasures are small, quirky, family-owned businesses located off the beaten path. Antique aficionados, however, now have the perfect tool to hunt down a city's hidden antique shops.
The MyCityAntiquing app brings a modern twist to the hunt for antiques, making it easier than ever for antique lovers to find their favorite treasures. From furniture and artwork to jewelry and ceramics, there are some amazing pieces in antique shops, fairs, and auction houses around the globe just waiting to be discovered with the MyCityAntiquing app.
