    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!

    Like most of the trip adviser apps it's very useful when not on a network to have maps and info to hand. Ratings are messed up so best to use the suggested itineraries instead. Also metro map is out of date

    All the attraction are rated 2 of 422 making it impossible to identify the most interesting spot.

    It's very helpful when planning trips because I can read about places even when I have no internet connection. Seeing nearby attractions is great because we can go to places we almost missed. But after last update, almost all attractions are ranked number 2. (I uninstalled older version before installing the new one because no more space on my device)
