41 guides, 1 app.
Welcome to Hg2 on iPhone - the city guide series coveted by travellers who value both style and substance when it comes to soaking up a city. Were not about the most expensive shops, bars, restaurants and hotels - were about the best. All our guides are compiled by writers who have lived in each city, with content that is packed with insider knowledge and a voice that is irreverent, inspired, and, above all, intelligent.
Hg2 on iPhone carries the latest technology - with Augmented Reality (on devices with a compass) its like seeing whats around the corner. With Foursquare check-in integrated, you can check-out a venue, then check-in your Hg2 experience.
You can also download from iTunes a handpicked soundtrack to the city - to give you the perfect beats to the city.
All Hg2 travel content is stored on your iPhone - only using data connections for features such as maps, check-in and sound track to the city to minimise data roaming costs.
This is the ultimate Hg2 app – packed with destination information on 41 cities and ski resorts around the world – it is the perfect companion to any trip away.
This master application has taken 5 years to research and photograph – and includes over 10,000 hand-picked and tested hotels, restaurants, bars, cafés, clubs, spas, shops, sights and things to do.
We eat and drink in every single venue we review incognito and this is a filtered collection of the best places to guarantee an amazing time, both home and away.
The 2011 edition is constantly updated with new openings, closures and relevant information – the master edition will also include three new cities due to come online over the first half of 2011.
