[prMac.com] Hamburg, Germany - Jourist Publishing today is pleased to introduce City Advisor for iOS, their expandable travel app that includes 5 comprehensive City Modules, and offers 38 optional Modules for cities worldwide.

Included free with the app are the following City Modules: New York, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Mexico City, and Buenos Aires.
More than a summary guide, each City Module offers a comprehensive overview of one of the world's major cities. Each is filled with historical facts, notes on local culture, descriptions of points of interest, and practical information on a wide variety of topics. In fact, local residents find City Advisor invaluable when navigating their own cities in search of entertainment, food, and fun.

From the first page of each Module, travelers can easily access hundreds of entries through the app's touch-sensitive list of Categories. Divided into two parts, The City and Places of Interest, users can quickly look up any detail, or browse through individual Categories. The City includes the following Categories: General Information, Eat and Drink, Getting There, Entertainment, Fun Facts, Where to Stay, and Tours. Touching any Category opens a list of Sub-Categories.
Places of Interest includes the following Categories: All Places, Favorite Places, Accommodations, Bars and Cafes, Beauty and Spas, Entertainment Venues, Museums and Galleries, Nightclubs, Outdoor Activities, Practical Information, Restaurants, and Shopping. Touching any Category, such as Nightclubs, opens the following Sub-Categories: All Types, Blues, Disco/80's, After Hours, Gay & Lesbian, Jazz, Live Music, Other, R&B/Hip-Hop, Rock/Pop, Salsa, Standards/Top 40, Techno/House, and World Music. Within each Sub-Category are full-page listings of individual clubs and map views:
The app makes it easy to find the best in event-based entertainment, with all-inclusive entries that cover concerts, events for families, local bands, theater, sports, festivals, and many other attractions. Events, compiled up until July 2013, can be filtered into three different listings: Today, Within the Next 3 Days, or Within the Next 30 Days. All the descriptions in the app include hyper-linked text, so that users can instantly move between Categories to plan the perfect day of sightseeing and entertainment.
