No matter whether you like to travel or not, chances are you’ve stumbled upon quite a few travel-related applications in the Google Play Store. Some apps let you find accommodations all over the world, other apps let you explore the culture in particular cities, etc. Well, the app we’re here to talk about actually does all that and so much more, which makes it a really useful companion during your trips, read on.
The app in question is called ‘Citymaps: Offline Map & Guides’, and it’s actually really useful. This application is an offline navigation system, tour guide and much more all in one. Citymaps basically lets you plan your trips and it does that in style considering the design of this app is spot on, and definitely in line with Google’s Material Design guidelines. Internet connection can be a problem when you’re traveling, roaming expenses are often through the roof, and that’s why an offline navigation system can be really useful. Well, Citymaps offers such navigation, and it has city guides for 100,000 cities all over the world. On top of all this you can also create personalized lists in order to plan out your trip, and invite people to join in. As part of your exploration, Citymaps offers you to check out various places to eat, go out, shop at, etc. The app will also group some of the most popular places under the ‘Must See’ category, which can be really useful if you need quite recommendations and what not. The app works really well, and we had no issues with it during our testing. Once you fire up Citymaps, you’ll be able to sign up, log in, or skip everything and go directly into the app, though it is recommended that you create an account first, of course.
