2. City Maps 2Go

City Maps 2GO is a navigation app similar to Google Maps, but some of its features can be handy in roaming the city.

The great thing about City Maps 2Go is its offline access that will ensure you don’t get lost while you roam the city. You can download all the data of a map, and with the help of GPS, and it’ll track your location on the offline map. You might not have access to the internet so that City Maps 2Go will solve this problem.

3. Routes.guide

If you are not sure of where you would like to go after leaving the house, then Routes.guide got your back. This is a community driven app that lets people share their experience while roaming a city. They will share the attractions, food locations and anything they find interesting along with their way. It shows all the comments and pictures in their travel path on an interactive map.

You can choose any of the path taken by your fellow Routes.guide user and enjoy the personal guide provided by them. Although you can do this using a navigation app, a custom path created by another person just feels right.

4. Falling Fruit

Falling Fruit is a fascinating service and healthy one as well. It shows fruit trees near your location or in your travel path. It collects data from different resources, and community members can also register fruit trees that they find in their way. You can find fruit in public places that are free to eat and also see comments, like how good they are. Furthermore, if there are any fruits on private property, you will be able to see if the owners allow being picked or not, right on the map.

If you are in an area that is famous for fruit trees, then there is a good chance that Falling Fruit will have good data on it. However, I did notice that it missed a lot of less known places and even few countries.

5. Get there dry

As the name suggests, Get there dry focuses on telling you how the weather will affect your trip. All you have to do is give your current location, departure time and destination, and Get there dry will tell you if there is any chance you may have to deal with bad weather. It is very handy to roam the city, especially, if it is known for unexpected raining.
