mX Great Britain Guide
MobiExplore have released what has to be the most comprehensive app based guide to Great Britain. With so many options here, it is got to be the best option on the App Store for exploring and discovering the UK.
The app offers guides to hotels, attractions and places of interest. The great thing here is that is isn’t just the ‘big’ places that are listed and supported, but also many smaller venues such as bars, clubs and shops that you can find information on.
As well as offering all this handy information, the app also actually lets you book things directly. So, you could check out some local hotels and then actually book them, all from within the app. You can also book theatre shows and tours of London.
Not to worry, as is isn’t just London that is supported, as there are maps of 37 locations in the UK, something that few apps bother to do. The maps are fully interactive and are geolocation enabled, which is really handy when you are actually on the street.
Here are the app’s best features, straight from the developer:
× offline content helps you save on roaming
× direct booking, for over 11,000 hotels
× tour and theatre booking
× share your GREAT Britain experience on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and TripAdvisor
× local tips and phrasebook
× city guides of London and 37 other destinations
× shopping tips and special offers
× interactive maps with geolocation
× important phone numbers
Perhaps the most handy feature for international visitors is the addition of offline content, meaning that you can find your way around without fear of being hit with massive roaming charges.
Overall, this is a highly detailed and fully functional guide to Great Britain, and one that stands head and shoulders above other apps of its type in the App Store.
