Using the Cities Talking app couldn’t be easier! Simply download the app and follow the on-screen guide. Don’t forget there are no roaming charges!
Cities Talking uses Google maps and has been designed to look familiar and be easy for users by following Apple and Android designs. Each walking tour is made up of points of interest. As you follow the on-screen map, audio is triggered when you approach each point of interest describing where you are and providing a unique and memorable audio guide for the area.
Using the on-screen controls you can pause, rewind or fast forward the audio putting you firmly in control of your walking tour experience. The audio for each point of interest is also reproduced as text on-screen so you can read about the area as well as listening to the commentary. Don’t forget, if you want to have a rest, a drink or get something to eat you can pause the walk at anytime – you’re in charge. This means you can also move away from the route to visit other points of interest we have highlighted on your phone’s map.
