Rough Guides Releases City Guide Apps

Rough Guides, the publishers of popular travel books, has launched its first City Guide mobile apps on the Apple App Store. 

The City Guides series, which takes in London, Paris, New York and Rome, includes location-aware features that allow you to find where you are and locate attractions, hotels, and eateries nearby. Full city mapping is also built in. 

Users can also share information from the guides via email, and the app boasts an image gallery that brings together all the images from the guide. There is a Lucky Dip feature that suggests things for you to do at your chosen destination, should you need inspiration.

The Rough Guides apps join the companys main travel guide rival on the App Store – Lonely Planet released a similar series of apps last year.

The Rough Guide city apps are available for £1.79 each from the App Store.
