GPSmyCity app

This item appears on page 75 of the October 2011 issue.

iPhone users can load over 2,000 walking tours of more than 180 cities worldwide with GPSmyCity applications.

Each walking tour features still pictures of sights with text, turn-by-turn navigation and walking directions and a “FindMe” autotracker (so you know you’re headed in the right direction). The tech is not Internet based, so there are no roaming charges.

You can download a free demo sample before buying a city’s app ($2.99-$4.99, depending on the number of tours in that city’s package). Tour authors are required to have resided in their cities for at least six months. Visit
