Win a Self-Guided City Walks App for Your Next Trip! [CLOSED]

GPS my City

Over the course of 2015, I had the opportunity to visit 16 cities. I saw one of the seven wonders of the world, I went on a road trip to the Canadian Rockies, attended EDC Las Vegas in the Nevada desert, became an expert at feeding wild deer, visited Singapore during its Golden Jubilee, reconnected with old friends across different continents, fell in love with an Uber driver/band drummer, ran into Hollywood stars in Downtown Los Angeles, and I watched my first-ever NBA game – live! I’ve been working hard on this little travel blog ever since and I am super excited to announce that I have partnered up with GPSmyCity.com to host a fun contest giveaway!!!!!

Preview of the app.

You guys know me, I’m based out here in Vancouver, B.C. I don’t like recommending something I haven’t tried and I’m not saying I went through each and every walk on here, but I’ve put on my reading glasses and “analyzed” the app a bit so here’s a quick demonstration of how this app works.

Overview of the app.

Example of a sightseeing walk to Vancouver Art Gallery.

GPS my City
You can browse by attraction as well.

The app itself is very hands-on and easy to navigate around. Clean, simple layout design without information all cluttered and hard to read. You can also adjust the text size yourself, which is always good. Precise directions and accurate maps, although the maps could be a tiny bit more detailed. The classification could be better organized too, especially for the Attraction List. But hey, I’m a perfectionist and I have an eye for the details so that’s just me picking bones from an egg (nitpicking). Overall not a bad app. Quite helpful, gets the job done, and actually introduced me to a few places I didn’t know existed in Van.

How this giveaway works.
