Mp3cityguides and Sploro Create New iPhone Mp3 tour for cities

mp3cityguides, the handheld tourist technology developers have collaborated with Sploro, the self guided multimedia tour producers to create a series of city guide iPhone Apps which are now live and available for purchase.

The tours guide visitors around a city with the help of Google maps, telling them about what they’re seeing and giving them easily accessible information on their iPhone or iPod Touch about a monument, building, museum, palace or church. In each case, there are essential facts plus little known details, which are easy to access and enrich a visit to any city.

The first audio tour, priced at USD13.99, is of Barcelona’s Ramblas plus the historic Barri Gotic and Born districts with a tour of London’s Westminster and West End due to go live soon. Other forthcoming tours will include Amsterdam, Paris, the Gaudi district of Barcelona, the City of London including the Tower and St Paul’s plus Rome’s most famous sites.

“We were very pleased to be approached by Sploro to create these city tours because we’d been looking to develop an iPhone App for our Mp3 tours but were concerned about the feedback people were leaving about some of the existing Apps other than Sploro,” said Simon Brooke, founder of mp3cityguides. “The Sploro format and technology complement our products perfectly and help translate them into a App for an iPhone or iPod Touch.”

Todd Greenwood, President of Sploro said: “We were impressed with the content of mp3cityguides Mp3 Tours and we felt that with their expertise in writing audio guides they would be a good match for our technology. We’re looking forward to working with them to create more Sploro guides and to develop new projects together based around hand held tourist information.”
