If you are a tourist to any city that you are visiting, who do you rely on to get you to the places you want to go to? Many times you will rely on your concierge at the hotel that will tell you of the things that are happening in the city or the local attractions in the city. Many times there are people who research the city that they are visiting. But there are some that just want to get to their destination and discover what is around them. Sometimes you will also have visitors arriving to the city and you run out of ideas of where to take your guests.
So if you are one of those type of people that I just mentioned above let me introduce you to an app that will make your travel a little easier. The name of the app is the Chicago Local Guide for your Android phone. Now this app is very state of the art for any of the people that I described above. It will tell of points of interests that are around you, sports, cultural, tech, and social events that are happening around the city of Chicago. The app also has photos and art of Chicago from various artists. Also if you just want to have a little piece of Chicago on your phone it will feature some wallpapers for your phone of the city of Chicago. One thing that I find interesting is, if you are familiar with the food truck craze that are happening around the U.S.A is slowly but surely coming here in Chicago. Well coming soon for this app you can look at the twitter feed to any of these food trucks and see where they are located with the maps that will also be included.
If you are interested in this app, the best thing about this app is that it is free. And you can find it in your Android Marketplace. I highly recommend this app.
