[] London, United Kingdom - First mobile guide of Britain, developed in partnership with VisitBritain, the national tourism agency, got a major upgrade. The new edition - mX Great Britain, published by Mobiexplore, makes it easy to explore Britain and its major destinations on mobile, with rich, interactive content and features. It's available for free in the App Store.

The app was first introduced as mobiEXPLORE UK, prior to Smartphone "boom", and with over 200,000 downloads, it has proven to be quite popular. That was in the days before application stores, when the installation process was a bit cumbersome. Now, with just a few clicks on App Store, users can explore for themselves all the things that make Britain a great place to visit.

mx Great Britain has a clean and simple interface, yet it packs quite a lot of content and features. Travellers can use it to book a hotel, flight to UK, local tour or a ticket to a popular London musical. There is information on local attractions, things to do, places to eat, local tips, guides for 38 destinations in the UK ... and much more. The apps works in offline mode to help visitors save on roaming, and for those whose who need to go online, to check out the weather forecast or events, there is free Wi-Fi finder. With mX Great Britain travellers can easily use major social networks to share their UK experience.
