Amsterdam iPhone App Will Guide You Through Your Coffee Shop Haze
Whether you're using your iPhone for fun distraction on your trips or tracking your travel plans, for many of us they're becoming an indispensable part of getting away from home. We always keep an eye out for new apps and one for those headed to Amsterdam caught our attention – not least of all because it's come from the Netherlands Board of Tourism and we figure they should know just a bit about their capital city.
The Amsterdam Mobile Guide is free (very nice), and available both for iPhones and its rivals. It includes details of around 200 popular Amsterdam venues, and you can directly phone, email or Google map them. There are also a few itineraries if you need hints for your Amsterdam stay, ranging from 8-hour stopovers to three-day trips.
You can also use this app to quickly get an idea of what places are within walking distance from where you are at that moment. It all looks pretty – the tulip logo isn't even too kitschy – and includes quite handy photos so you can really figure out that you're in the right place. Above all, if you don't have to pay for it, you can't really go wrong. Right?
