On the free Yonward app, you'll find mobile guides created by a variety of authors. Hundreds of stories and tours cover neighborhoods, art, architecture, history, and more, with a particular focus around Boston. Activate guides you’d like to explore, and then let Yonward do the work. It uses the GPS on your iPhone to know exactly when and where to tell you about the places you’re interested in seeing.
If you enjoy using Yonward, you'll love the AIA Guide to Boston app. With a more refined interface and curated, professionally written content, it puts the definitive guide to Boston architecture on the same location-aware platform, covering more than 1,000 sites across the metro area. For less than half the price of the book, you can carry this up-to-date field guide on your phone and have it with you always. Find it on the App Store.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
Improved error handling when uploading images.
Removed ability to establish a user account and create new guides.
Ratings and Reviews
I love taking the tours virtually to learn about places I wouldn't know about otherwise, and I have a growing list of places I want to visit! The app is a great insiders guide to cities and neighborhoods for trip planning, but it also lets you discover things of interest as you wander in both new and familiar places. I love that the list of tours is ever growing. I am inspired to create a few of my own!
WOW. BEST APP EVER.
Words can't describe how fantastic this app is. The Dartmouth tour made by Andrew B. ? Best tour I've ever seen in my life. If you haven't downloaded it yet, download it ASAP!!!!! I literally spend 5 hours a day on this app! So addicted! Literally my favorite app ever.
One of my FAVORITE apps!
This is a fun way to share your experiences with others. I like to visit places my friends have before me and see where they have left beacons and information. It is like having a tour of a new place with an expert to guide your adventure. Also it is well designed, with beautiful graphics. I look forward to using it more!
