Free iOS App: UrbanWonderer

Free is nice, and it’s been a while since I’ve posted any free apps or games. I’m going to have to change that and find some more for you guys and gals. If you’re in New York and you like to go for walks then check out UrbanWonderer app. It lets you explore New York City on foot, it’s GPS-driven, it’s great for self-guided sightseeing tours for first time visitors and business travelers, as well as native New Yorkers.

After the app user selects the New York City tour they’d like to take, they’ll see their current location, and the tour path, on a street-level city map. As they follow the path they’ll see their actual progress, as well as markers identifying important sights. Tapping one of these markers will play an in-depth audio narrative about that particular sight.

As an audio example, UrbanWonderer’s tour of the SoHo has a two-part audio segment on the neighborhood’s longtime ghost, Elma Sands, and the 1800 murder trial that captivated the entire city. This tragic tale, with its Halloween-fitting ending, can be heard at http://www.UrbanWonderer.com.

Mr. Samson, president of Voyant Strategies Inc., added "Even the most seasoned and knowledgeable New Yorkers will discover new things about the city. And they can also take these tours ‘virtually’ from the comfort of their own couch. So whether you are in the Central Plains or Central America, you can learn all about New York City as if you were walking the streets yourself."

UrbanWonderer Audio Tours not only offer a wealth of in-depth information about New York City history and architecture, but they also deliver insider knowledge about the best restaurants, shopping, and cultural offerings. It’s like having a licensed New York City tour guide in your pocket. And new tours will be added to the app every 2 to 3 weeks.

Download the free UrbanWonderer Audio Tour iPhone app from Apple’s AppStore on iTunes. For more information on UrbanWonderer Audio Tours, visit http://www.UrbanWonderer.com, or email us at info[at]urbanwonderer.com.
