People who are addicted to their iPhones might wonder if there are actually specific Sydney apps related to tourism. The good news for you, technology geeks, is it seems that there are five perfect apps that would make your trip to Sydney more comfortable and easy.
If you are looking for an online city guide, the must have is the Lonely Planet Sydney City Guide. This worldwide famous guide has successfully adapted to the online world, and their app will allow you to not only to know the best spots to visit in Sydney but it will also help you with an extended background in history and culture.
Non English-speaking, and generally anyone who's not Australian would find that some of the expressions that Sydneysiders use are difficult to understand. The perfect translator is Aussie Slang - it will help you follow what Aussies are saying, and would also be helpful to impress your friends.
It is well known that when visiting a foreign city, tourists always have trouble finding a toilet. With the application Toilet Mate, you will have information on where are the toilets and how to easily get there, thanks to your GPS.
Sydney is a bay city, and a good and interesting way to travel around is by ferry. All ferries depart from Circular Quay, and with the application Next Sydney Ferry, you will have information on what time the next ferry departs. It's really useful if you are running late and you want to know at which precise time you can leave.
