Schmap travel guides available on iPhone and iPod Touch

 

 

If you have a Flickr account, you’ll probably have heard of the free digital travel guides Schmap. I first became aware of the guides last year, when Emma emailed me to ask if she could use some of my pictures.

 

I downloaded the guide to see what the hype was all about, and although they are well designed and informative, I did not find them particularly useful as I never carry my 15.4 inches laptop around when I go on holiday!

 

But I recently got another email from Emma informing me that the guides are now available on iPhone and iPod touch, creating a whole new meaning to travel guides. Now that’s definitely something I would look into as I hate carrying cumbersome guides around.

 

 

The guys at Schmap are indeed very smart social media folks – they have gradually managed to create a relationship with me by keeping me updated on the latest Schmap’s development both via email and Flickr, but I am now also blogging about them and recommending their guides.

    Schmap is nicely done – but really you want it to be an App so that it can make use of the location-aware features
