New York \At a Glance\ City Guide - Free

By BeeLoop SL released on: 2009-04-26T02:35:32Z

The guides "At a Glance" comprise a selection of the most important points of interest in every city - more than 700 in the New York guide (only 30 in the Lite version) - which have been selected and checked by experts on trips so you don't miss the opportunity to know them whether you are just visiting the city or you live in it.

For each point of interest you are offered a wide range of information which includes their address, phone number, e-mail address, location - to be located on the map or to show the route from the user's location -, the nearest car parks and underground stations, a picture, the editor's classification, and ticket prices, among the most important details. It is also possible to add this information to the device's own address book - so you won't have to add it by hand - as well as send it to other users by e-mail.

In the "Categories" section, the "At a Glance" guides allow sorting the reference required by type - history and culture, what to see, eating out, shopping, accommodation, and night life - as well as further filtering and sorting -, name, price, nearness or editor's selection - so the user can easily find the point of interest s/he is looking for.

In the "Routes" section, these guides also show different itineraries to do on foot - Saturday morning, afternoon and evening, Sunday morning, afternoon and evening, and the same with other days in the week - which include most of the points of interest comprised in the database and thus guaranteeing a comprehensive visit to the city. The guides also have an "Out of route, but" section with those points of interest that are not included in the several itineraries but must be taken into account and are worth a visit during our spare time or in future visits to the city.

On the other hand, the "At a Glance" guides also help the user to know what can be done at a given moment thanks to their section "What to do now?", where different options among the whole reference database will be suggested depending on the point at which the user is located or the time of the day at which the query is done.

Also, the "What's nearby?" section makes it possible for users to select all those points of interest located at less than a given distance and therefore have a quick access to their details.

Finally, the section "Favourites" will allow the user mark the most viewed references and therefore enable a quicker and more direct further query.

New York Transport Map - Free Subway Map on iPh...

By OnDemandWorld released on: 2011-03-10T12:28:58Z

★★★★★1 transport map available for free download (internet connection required). This app makes it easy to view large transport maps on your iPhone or iPad. When you first launch the app, it downloads the latest version of the map from the web and process it into image tiles, this might take a few minutes. But it supports full multi-tasking, so you are safe to quit the app and come back later. Once that is done, the future loading time will be very fast. Most PDF software on iPhone cannot handle large files well, they are slow in loading the files and zooming in. Our app is designed from ground up to be a fast reader for large image PDFs. ★★★★★

You can also purchase our map packs (internet connection required) to download other publicly available PDF maps and store them on your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. You can download the maps when you have fast wifi connection - and then use any time in the future without delay.

Please note that we do not provide any of the maps and by clicking on any of the links, you are downloading directly from the web and agreeing to the respective sites license agreement. The software helps you to store and load the downloaded copy to save repeated download time and costs.

Whilst the maps are freely available for download online, our developers and admins have worked hard to come up with the technology and maintain an up-to-date collection of maps. That's why we have ads and Pro versions to fund further developments.

We believe that anyone with a smartphone should be able to have PDF travel maps on their device and we are working hard to help eliminating the use of paper for travel maps.

"u2714 Download (internet connection required) and store maps and guides for offline use - no more time-consuming searches!
"u2714 Works with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad with HD support for Retina Display.
"u2714 Supports the iPhone pinch-to-zoom feature!
"u2714 Tap on the map for full screen view to hide the toolbars.
"u2714 Simple user interface and intuitive user experience.
"u2714 Supports multi-tasking (background tasks) on iOS 4.0 for downloading and processing.
"u2714 Add Map Packs with in-app purchase.

"u2794 Check out for more information.

COMING SOON: Our team is already working on the next version which is even faster, other new features including customizable list for adding and sorting your own list of maps and guides, favorites lists, integration with web community, user-ratings and translation into many languages. Stay tuned for the free update.
