Fodor’s has updated its series of 22 free travel guides for iPhone and iPad and the 2014 editions are now available on iTunes.
Just in time for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, city guides for Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paolo have been added!
Each App features:
– Expert info: Read about things to do and get expert tips
– Interactive Local Maps: Discover what’s nearby
– Booking Tools: Book hotels, tours, and more
– Planner: Save favorites and create lists
Fodor’s local travel experts vet every recommendation. You’ll find information on neighborhoods, cheap things to do, kid-friendly attractions, shopping, nightlife, performing arts, and more. These are not your parent’s stuffy travel books!
The interactive maps make it easy to find nearby hotels, sights, restaurants, bars, and clubs and to access reviews from the map.
Listings are searchable by destination, price range, or category of interest. Look for properties designated “Fodor’s Choice,” representing the best of the best.
The Fodor’s apps were recognized as the “2013 Travel App of the Year” by the Society of American Travel Writers, and were featured in Wired Magazine’s 2012 App Guide as a Best Travel Reference App.
How can Fodor’s afford to give away its guidebooks for free? The apps include the ability to book hotel rooms via Expedia, buy event tickets via Tickets Now, and make restaurant reservations via Open Table. Fodor’s is likely earning a commission if you make purchases via the app.
