Over the past few months we’ve been beavering away to bring you the king of travel apps; the most imaginative and informative of travel tools – the only travel app you’ll ever need. Well we think so anyway.
What’s so different about our app?
It’s a delicate balance to strike. Many travel apps fall into the trap of providing either too much, or too little content – bombarding users with irrelevant information, or alternatively leading them half way around town before abandoning them in an unknown city with an inadequate map and not a stylish restaurant or bar in sight. Well, we would not want to make the same mistake. Hg2’s new mobile apps for iPhone, iPad and iPad mini comprise of 49 individual city guides, downloadable separately or as a complete guide and packed full of useful, user-friendly information.
How does it work?
Search our carefully collated selection of hotels, restaurants, bars, night spots and city attractions according to your own personal tastes (achingly hip, neighbourhood vibe, uniquely local etc…), budget, or type of venue; or alternatively take a visual tour of the city with our innovative new image search option. Every city has around 200 different venues, each with its own concise review and images, so you’ll know exactly what to expect and never again be stuck for exciting things to see and do on your travels.
What can it do?
Depending on just how organised you are, you can use our app to plan your journey before you set off; creating your very own itinerary of must-see venues or compiling a list of favourites as you go so you’ll always be able to find your way back to that underground cocktail bar or hidden café. And don’t you worry – we’ve stuck with Google maps so you won’t run the risk of getting lost mid route. There’s even a built-in currency converter so you can keep track of your purchases without having to rely on schoolboy maths skills.
How can I get involved?
There’s also the option to contribute your own review and rating for venues using our integrated comment boxes and starring system so you can pass on your on-the-ground, up-to-the-minute knowledge easily with other users, whilst also sharing your favourite Hg2 app venues via Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.
And best of all, our app follows the very same principles as our guides, featuring only the hottest and most happening spots around town for discerning, hedonistic travellers.
Download the new app now from iTunes – priced at just £2.99 per city.
