GuidePal City Guide App Surpasses 2.5 Million Downloads
New App Features Free, Worldwide City Guides So You Can Travel Like a Local
Travelers in search of the locals’ best kept secrets from cities around the world can now receive them directly to their mobile phones for free by visiting http://www.guidepal.com.
Flying under the radar of traditional media, GuidePal, a Swedish company based in Stockholm, has become the most downloaded, fastest-growing city guide app for mobile. GuidePal has surpassed 2.5 million downloads and continues to add thousands of new users each day.
GuidePal CEO Peter Schierenbeck is looking to challenge traditional city guide books by embracing the expectations of an audience in the digital age. With free quality travel guides for mobile devices, written by local experts, GuidePal offers the interactive, personalized features online audiences expect along with the offline utility of a printed travel guide. The app’s wide-ranging appeal in part explains the company’s rapid growth.
GuidePal’s loyal fan-base has grown largely through word-of-mouth and sergenerated recommendations. Fans tout the easy to use interface, access to secret local hotspots, and discounts at some of the world’s most popular tourist destinations as top reasons for downloading the app. The app also features detailed offline maps to reduce roaming fees when traveling abroad. The quick success of the app has prompted major companies to take notice. Recently, GuidePal signed a partnership agreement with American Express.
GuidePal´s city apps can be easily downloaded to any smartphone from http://www.guidepal.com. With detailed information about where to stay, where to eat, and what to do for fun, guides enable users to discover all the best hidden gems and "must-see" classics each city has to offer.
