Would you like to visit major financial landmarks and Dickens’ favorite taverns? Would you like to get to know Bloomsbury’s verdant squares and beautiful residential housing or discover classic pre-war department stores?
Hungry and curious about the city’s pub scene? Watch for the riverside pubs that allow for convenient pit-stops for food and drink along the way and the rooftop restaurants that cater to today’s cosmopolitan tastes.
PocketGuide, the world’s leading audio city guide application, reveals the best stories, insider hangouts and must-see sights.
PocketGuide turns your mobile device into a personal tour guide: The GPS figures out where you are, and a voice recording, made by a local guide, describes the sights around you. You don’t need to read text from your phone, just listen and enjoy a city’s attractions while your virtual tour guide explains it all and shares personal insights.
PocketGuide works offline, so you save on roaming charges, and it includes an offline map and loads of critical reviews that help you decide where to eat, drink and shop.
We also have fascinating themed tours, for those who want to go off the beaten path. Find the top tapas in Barcelona, get chic in NYC’s East Village or follow the trail of a 19th century serial killer in London.
Whether you're interested in the main sights or "the road less traveled", PocketGuide is ready to take you there.
Please note that continuous use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
Performance and stability improvements, as well as iPhone X support.

If you want offline guides. You will have to buy.
Network connection required
Really great idea but several bugs. Little use for offline traveling. My iPhone is on Sprint network and didn't work in London so i had to use this in wifi mode. When it launches, it immediately starts playing audio files which can be annoying if you launch it in a quiet location. It doesn't remember your preferences so turning off the audio doesn't work. Lastly, the trip i did record disappeared on the next app update so the photos and gps points are gone. What a bummer, i wanted to explore exporting that and sharing it with friends and family. If they can work thru some of the bugs, it is an awesome idea, with great maps and information.
A must have if you are visiting London without local data plan
