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!

    With phone in flight mode (to avoid roaming charges) you just need GPS switched on to find whatever you want in Paris. You can choose a famous building from its list of suggestions and follow yourself on the moving map, and when you get tired it will point you in the direction of the nearest metro station.

    TripAdvisor's City guides are excellent city overviews and navigational tools for cities! The free service makes it an easy decision to download. The best part is the functionality of the city guide when offline. Who wants to pay for international roaming data?!? Download the app with WIFI and start your exploring! Another great feature with the offline capability is being able to research the cit

    This app makes traveling in Paris super-easy. The app can determine your location without connecting to the internet. So it can be used for directions even if your sim card/internet access is not activated. You can check not only attractions but also for services on the map (metro stations, shops, ATMs). The app is very easy to use. Only one improvement to suggest. The smaller roads are marked on

    This app made navigating incredibly easy on our trip to Europe. All offline so it keeps the data charges away. Its basically Google maps to go, including pictures of landmarks, things to do, restaurant reviews. Made travelling around Paris worry free. Felt like we had our own tour guide. If you are leaving on a trip, dont forget this app!
