What do you do, when your travel partner/spouse wants to take the offbeat path or doesn’t believe in taking the same route twice? If you’re like him or her; it probably will be a perfect trip. If not, it’s always good to have something to fall back on. The last thing you want to have, with you, when you’re lost — is a sullen partner. So, when I’m planning our trips, I always have a rough idea of what we will do or see. And then, even if my travel partner decides to follow his own free will; I know that I won’t have to worry about following him.
It’s great to have a point of reference, before your make your own trail, or something to turn back to — in case you’re lost. That’s why GPSmyCity appealed to us. We’re excited to partner with them (once again) and have some of our Jeju posts converted into apps for IOS devices!
How does the Blog2App Article Work?
“GPSmyCity is designed for people who love to explore cities on foot.”
The Blog2App platform is a relatively new concept in the world of travel. How does it work? Thankfully, without the internet. If you’ve been reading our posts, of our trips, and wanted to try following a similar trail or finding an isolated location or maybe a museum or restaurant that we’ve listed; all you’d have to do is download the post that’s converted into an article app. Once you download our article app, on your IOS device (IPhone or IPad), you wouldn’t need an internet connection to follow the route we’ve traced. And in case, you do miss a step, the app will use the GPS tracker on your phone, to make sure you get back to the main path.
GPSmyCity partners with bloggers, like us, across multiple platforms. So, you’d have access to a rich bank of travel articles (over 600 cities) and city walks. Each article is converted into a downloadable app. You can download the app whenever you have access to the internet and view it, in real time, on a trip or in a hotel room, or whilst walking on an isolated road — in the middle of nowhere. There is no cost for the download. If you opt for an upgrade, there will be a nominal fee, a portion of which will go to the contributing author.
Here’s how you can access article apps on your IOS device:
- Click on the link at the end of a blog post that has been converted into an app. If you haven’t downloaded the free GPSmyCity app, you will receive a prompt to do so.
- Or, if you already downloaded the GPSmyCity app, search for your favourite city and download the articles available for FREE. You can opt for an upgrade for offline use and GPS tracking.
To get a feel for this app, try it out! We’re happy to offer a free upgrade on the article below. This offer is available from Monday, May 8 until Sunday, May 14.
