Paris is one of the world’s most famous, most cultural and historic cities. During the war, France surrendered Paris rather than see it destroyed, to preserve its beauty for the future. Here in the future, there is now so much to see that navigating it can be overwhelming. Most paper travel guides are difficult to search through, and mobile apps make frequent use of aggregated content, limiting their usefulness. Smarter City Guides is a bright new start up that has taken an innovative, ground up approach, and has just released their first app, SmarterParis.
SmarterParis began development a year ago after a group of locals were dissatisfied with the current offerings from major players like Trip Advisor, Ulmon and Mtrip, which use aggregated content. Instead, Smarter City Guides was born, and with five editors and two developers, 1,500 images and authentic information gathered from real Parisians, SmarterParis is now available to the public.
The app has state of the art geo-localized offline maps, meaning the product will add no additional cost in roaming data, as one can pre-install all the information in the guide by downloading the app. One of the most useful features is the possibility to set up your own personal profile and to filter the content based on what suits you best.
And for the visitors who want the real Paris, they can clic on ‘Meet the Parisians’ to book a cultural experience like wine tasting, a meal at home, a photoshoot and more with one of their experts.
A spokesperson for Smarter City Guides explained, “Priced at $3.99 / £2.49 / €3,59, the app is half the price of some of the more traditional offerings out there, and is comprised of specialized local knowledge, an agenda that is updated with the latest events, exhibitions and concerts, restaurant reviews, guided walks and more. The best part is that the app is 100% offline, features no ads, and even has a currency converter, phrasebook, weather forecast and dictionary. This is the next generation in travel guides, and nothing like it currently exists on the market, so we expect it to be a huge success. Download It now from The App Store.”
There is a demo video available on YouTube to showcase the product in action and a very popular Facebook page.
