Best travel guide apps for iPhone: Foursquare, Gogobot, Jetpac City Guides, and more!

Looking for the best iPhone apps to help you get around and find cool things to do while traveling? Travel guide apps are a great way to get the scoop on tourist attractions and even local hotspots in many different areas of the world. Whether you’re interest is history or food, architecture or museums, there are lots of App Store apps to help you make the most of your travels. That doesn’t mean all of them are created equal though. These are currently the best travel guide apps for iPhone and the ones we don’t think you should leave home without!


Foursquare is one of the best travel apps you’ll ever install on your iPhone. If you could only choose one travel guide app, I’d recommend choosing Foursquare. My main reason is because Foursquare is a diamond mine of information from locals. For times when you’re looking for a local pub that serves great Thai food, or when you want the best coffee shop in Paris, who better to ask than locals? And that’s exactly the information Foursquare will give you.

If you’re more interested in local hotspots and attractions off the beaten path, look no further than Foursquare to find them.


Gogobot focuses on three plan aspects of traveling; where to stay, where to play, and where to eat. Just launch Gogobot and you’ll automatically be shown weather information for your current location along with general info. You can also see what places are trending among other Gogobot users. Tap on what category you’d like to view attractions and more. Gogobot also gets smarter the more you use it since it bases recommendations off what you do and your personal tastes. You can also plan meetups with your friends who are also using Gogobot.

If you want a travel experience that’s more socially oriented, Gogobot is what you want.


Many people think of TripAdvisor as a place to book travel, but it’s also one of the largest resources of attractions as well. The TripAdvisor community itself is huge and you’ll find dozens of helpful suggestions and reviews from other travelers to help you plan an awesome trip. Just tell TripAdvisor where you are or where you want to go and it can dish up popular attractions, hotels, shopping hotspots, and lots more. You can even download data on the cities you’re visiting ahead of time so you know you have them, with or without a data connection.

For a huge wealth of information on thousands of locations and attractions across the world, be sure you’ve got TripAdvisor locked and loaded before your next trip.

Jetpac City Guides

Jetpac City Guides does things a little differently and uses real world Instagram photos in order to find hotspots and trending places across the world. Just tell Jetpac City what corner of the world you’re looking for something to do in and you’ll be presented with all kinds of unique categories to choose from. With names like “Top spots men like to visit” to “Hipster Hangouts”, Jetpac City has attractions and ideas of things to do to suit pretty much any personality.

If you’re looking for a trip that suits your unique personality and spirit, be sure to check out Jetpac City Guides.


Triposo plays host to information on over 25,000 cities worldwide. Like TripAdvisor and many others, any cities that catch your interest can be downloaded for offline access if you need them. Triposo can also use your current location to give you sightseeing, dining, and hotel recommendations. If you’re up for tours and show information, Triposo even aggregates those all in once place. You can even book them in once place via the in-app web browser.

For an all in one booking, sightseeing, and tour guide, be sure to browse Triposo.


Viator Tours brings the business of booking attractions right to your iPhone. Not only that, many of Viator’s popular Skip the Line passes are included for many popular attractions. One of my favorite features however is the recommendations section of each city. Only looking to stay somewhere 3 days? Take a look at sample itineraries so you can be sure you’re getting the most out of your time somewhere new.

For the best prices and deals on the most popular attractions are the world, you need the Viator app for iPhone.

Add Monument Valley, The Room Two, and Threes to your game collection at discounted prices

No one can resist a solid deal and we’ve got three iOS games today that are well-worth downloading. Monument Valley is joined by The Room Two and Threes, all currently available for low prices on the App Store. Head past the break for more details and the all-important download links.

Monument Valley

Monument Valley is a gorgeous experience, which deserves to be installed on your iPhone or iPad even at full price. Tasking players with manipulating seemingly impossible architecture, guiding a silent princess through a stunningly beautiful world, it’s a title everyone should play through. It’s possible to uncover hidden paths, unfold optical illusions and outsmart the enigmatic Crow People.

The Room Two

The Room Two is a superb puzzle game that really makes the player consider moves and calculate the best way to go about solving each obstacle. It’s also wrapped up in a mystery setting, following nothing more than a trail of cryptic letters from an enigmatic scientist known only as “AS”. Hop into a compelling world of mystery and exploration to see what all the fuss is about.

Please note that the game is compatible with the iPhone 4S or above, iPod touch 5th generation or above.


Threes is one of those titles that sports simple, yet highly addictive gameplay. By sliding a board of numbered cards in four directions, players aim to get adjacent and identically-numbered cards to stack on top of one another. Every turn introduces a new tile on the board, which means you’ve got to keep stacking to make room. When the board fills up, you’re given a score based on the value of the cards left, which in turn gets posted on the Game Center leaderboards.

ell-designed matching puzzler, has seen its price go down to $0.99, which is a pretty good deal, if you ask us. In Threes!, players have to match the number tiles in pairs and combine them in order to get the highest number possible.
