GuidePal is a mobile and web-based application that provides city guides via iPhone, iPad, and Android. Described as a "mobile travel and city discovery companion", their city guide app currently covers 57 destinations and can be accessed for free.[1]

GuidePal was founded in 2009. The company's head office is based in Stockholm, Sweden,

Overview[edit]

GuidePal's city guides are created by collaboration between locals and travel journalists. In the guides, GuidePal aims to offer an unbiased selection of each city's highlights, with all tips, and advice, curated by experts actually living in the city.[2]

Users can build their own personalised guides, create itineraries, invite friends and share tips with them, and book restaurants, hotels, tours, event tickets, and so on. The guides and maps can be made available offline.

The guides are written in English.

The content is broadly divided into seven sections: More About the city, Essentials, See & Do, Eat, Shop, Party, Stay. Subcategories include: Transportation, Airports and Useful Tips.

In March 2012, GuidePal released its first multi-destination app for iPhone. Three months later, the iPad version was released and achieved a "New and Noteworthy" status in the App Store. Since then, the company has also released a completely revamped multi-city app for Android.[3]
