Travel guides freed from the twin chains of 3G and wifi

No free wifi: the traveler's nightmare. Trusted review and advice site TripAdvisor presents the solution on a silver platter: downloadable Offline City Guides, including all the hotel, attraction, and restaurant information you already use from the website. Data roaming, begone!

Yup, this series of guides will work totally offline if you take a moment to download the one(s) that interests you onto your device. Select from a huge offering of internationally fascinating cities, from New York to Paris to Tokyo to Marrakech. Taking the time to download the guide when you do have a wifi connection means that it works ultra-fast when you're out actually roaming the mean streets of Rome. You can actually update the app with your own reviews as well, just like on the website - they'll upload when you finally do hook up to a sweet source of wifi goodness.

The guides include self-guided tours, which include both famous landmarks and local secrets. Using the GPS in your phone won't cost you a dime, so you can follow along the maps you've downloaded without a hitch and read extra info about la Sagrada Familia as you ogle its towers.

TripAdvisor Offline City Guides are simple and intuitive to use, it's just as interactive as you need it to be, and it can potentially save you a heap of cash in roaming charges. They're also completely and totally FREE. Highly, highly recommended if you're headed for adventure!

    Excellent app. Only drawback was that sync did not work. But that did not prevent using the app.

    We used this app to plan where we would go in Budapest as well as using it while we were there to navigate around the city and find places of interest close by. The suggested itiniaries are also very good!

    Great app in principle. Works well, easy to use, very useful offline mode. There was, however, a problem with the map on which our hotel's location was incorrect. This mistake led us on an hour-long trek in the wrong direction. Budapest is a beautiful city and it was a lovely evening, but when you're hungry you don't want to walk an hour in the wrong direction :o

    Nice to have offline reviews, but the lack of map locations for so many attractions meant that it missed a lot of places when searching nearby. Update the map locations and this will work. Annoying UI makes filtering difficult

    Enjoyed several great meals from the restaurant reviews, and helped with navigation in a new city.

    Hi, Please fix this Sync part of the program. It does not updating the Reviews. My app stayed on old reviews does not load the newest ones. Very annoying. Thanks!
