November 9, 2011 By CityPASS
Whether you’re a loyal iPhone user or you love your Android device, smartphone apps have changed the way we travel. You no longer need to carry around a map, guidebook, bus schedule, and directions to the restaurant you want to try for lunch. You can find all of that, and more, on your phone.
CityPASS attractions are keeping up with the times; a number of them have created their own apps to enhance the visitor experience. Some help you navigate your way around large museums or zoos with GPS-enabled maps, while others provide additional information about exhibits or mobile tours. Below is a list of apps currently offered by CityPASS attractions, as well some great city resources. Keep them in mind for your next CityPASS adventure!
