PocketGuide, the world’s leading audio city guide application, reveals the best stories, insider hangouts and must-see sights in more than 150 major cities and tourist destinations.
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 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.

Ratings and Reviews
A terrific travel companion
As others have noted the app provides the structure for individual guides to cities around the world. I tried Florence and was very impressed. I found it a comprehensive and entertaining guide to Florence. The commentary is casual and full of interesting and useful information--about the art and architecture and also about the street scene, places to eat or go for coffee or gelato. You can follow the suggested tour, or just let the app know where you are and let the commentary guide you. Since you can call up comments at will, you can use this guide to plan your trip in advance as well. All in all a very well designed app which I can see using for many cities as I travel. This Florence guide sets a high bar--it's remarkably good and I'll be checking to see if they have done as well with the other cities.

And it was. But it won’t work until I pay $9.99. Thank you. But no thank you.
Was excited to use this but before I can even buy the $9.99 guide the app crashes
