There is no need for a live data connection while using this app, as everything is stored on your phone, after you do an initial update. This means you won’t be charged for expensive data roaming, and the app is super fast to use. You can update user reviews periodically when you are on WiFi.

All places that are listed on in this city are included in the app.

TripAdvisor’s community of millions of worldwide travelers ensures that content is fresh, plentiful and honest. With over 50 million reviews and thousands more added daily, City Guides offer the best and most recent content.

TripAdvisor members and destination experts have handpicked the best itineraries in the city for you, enabling you to explore interesting neighborhoods, famous landmarks and hidden gems. Using the phone’s GPS, you can follow along and read about the interesting sights along the route.

Searching for pizza around Times Square? Coffee near the Eiffel Tower? Or do you just want to find a highly recommended place near you? With this app you can easily search any way you want, and find exactly what’s best for you and your travel companions.

Once you have selected a restaurant or attraction, this app will guide you there using the fun & useful “Point Me There” screen, which uses the phone’s GPS and Compass.

Written by TripAdvisor members and edited by professionals, City Facts articles provide helpful information for when you plan your trip, such as when to go, how to get around in the city, what neighborhoods to visit, etc.

This app leverages the GPS in the phone to show you the best restaurant, attractions etc nearby. The app also uses the compass to guide you to a place once you selected it

I know my biggest problem when going to a new city is having an easy way to find hotspots for food, entertainment and sight-seeing so this would help out tremendously. We’re hopeful they’ll add more cities over time. Check the full list of cities out in the Android market.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. MY biggest problem when going to a new city is not having an easy way to find hotspots, period.

  2. I like TripAdvisor.. I do most of my research prior to going to a new town though.. but still kind of nice.. What I am waiting for, is for Google or someone else to come up with a good way to download maps to my phone.. Not so much for use here, but as data can cost a fortune when roaming overseas it would be nice to be able to shut off data and still use GPS and maps on my phone.
