I’m excited to announce that more of my blog posts are now available in the GPSMyCity app for iphones and ipads. The upgraded version includes a map with points of interest for a dynamic walking tour for only $0.99. A free version is also available without the map. Either way, I’d be extremely grateful if my friends and readers took the time to click the “Like” button on each tour in the GPSMyCity App, as it will help my downloads! In the app, you can search the specific titles below to find my posts.
