Voyager’s Blog Articles Now Take an App Avatar

Reading and travelling are our twin passions, and keeping in pace with changing technologies we have transitioned from Books to eBooks and so on. Today Apps virtually rule the world or at least a part of it. You have apps for virtually everything from ordering Chinese Food to summoning a cab to drop you at the airport, from helping you get your Yoga postures right to filing your tax Returns, and so on, the list is endless.

One area of this App revolution that we have embraced is that of downloading and reading content offline. We find this so useful and convenient as it helps us catch up on our reading, on the go.

With this background in mind we would like to introduce you to a relatively new and innovative concept launched by GPSMyCity, that of Blog Article Apps. Click here to check the same.

App Avatar of our articles

Each article is an individual app which you can download for free. This allows you to access the article offline, and read it on the go, literally from wherever you are and you do need not worry about the availability of an Internet connection. There is also the option to upgrade for a small fee. This assists with your travel planning by providing an offline map showing the points of interest. And it links the app to GPS, so that when you are actually in the city you can get a route to the places mentioned in the article.

It is with great pleasure that we would like to announce here that two of our posts are now available as Apps, these are our posts on Lucerne, Switzerland and Fiesole, Italy.

To get your free upgraded app, you need to click on the link for the article(s) you are interested in. Then follow the instructions to download the GPSMyCity app. You will then be taken to the page for the article app – click on Upgrade and the app will be automatically linked to an offline map and the GPS navigator.

    I think the idea behind it is a fantastic one and I am glad you have your content on there. I have a question as I am not sure I understood right. If each article is an app, and I download 10 articles, do I then have 10 new apps on my phone and display? How does this work for saving space on the phone?

      Here is what I got to know:
      Some apps are standalone apps and downloaded directly from iTunes. Each such app has its own icon displayed on your iPhone home screen, so they take up space on your iPhone home screen. The article apps are downloaded inside the GPSmyCity app. On your home screen, you see only the GPSmyCity app. But each downloaded article app still takes up space on your iPhone disk. If you are running out of disk space, you should consider deleting some of the downloaded articles to free up space on the disk.

    This is a great idea! I love using apps in collaboration with travel. It just seems to go hand in hand since you can’t lug around a computer with you everywhere!

    I like to read about the place where I am when I travel and this app is a fantastic thing. I checked this website and there are some nice tours around Budapest. Thanks for sharing a link!

    This sounds like a superb idea, to have an article and details of a place like map and navigation on the go would be so helpful.

    Well, this is interesting. I’d like to see reviews from other users of this app. 🙂 I think it’s great that there are now more tools for travelers’ use, it just makes life so much easier.

    This is a cool travel app, not just for pointing on the right direction but also giving us more information about the places, like a travel magazine. Great idea 😀

    Congratulations for turning your articles into a Travel App. This sounds like a cool way to help tourists find and explore their destination without having to carry around a massive guidebook and map. Very cool 🙂

    This is super cool! My husband would enjoy this, he prefers kindles or reading articles on his phone. Goodluck with the giveaway!

    This sounds like an interesting idea. Was it a lot of work on your part to get the articles ready to be an app? I wonder how smoothly it works for the reader too.

      On our part, we just shared our website link. GPSmycity went through the site to convert the articles into an app. It was that easy!
