Loving the new-to-me Fotopedia Paris* app! I’ve had the Fotopedia Heritage app for a year now. The folks at Fotopedia know what they are doing! Both apps are well organized, full of great photos, easily searchable and free with useful features.
What I love about the Paris app is the ability to tag photos by tapping the My Trip button (a stick figure walking). The end result is a series of photos, a virtual trip itinerary if you will, that will serve as excellent reminder of what I hope to see during our visit.
Going one step further you can even see all the points in your trip on a map. This is an excellent way to see the sights in relation to each other and to plan accordingly. Very handy if you only have a few days to explore.
You’ll find amazing photos of the Louvre, Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame, sure. But what I love about this app is the ability to discover hidden gems like Place du Tertre in Montmartre not far from the Sacre Coeur Basilica. Places we might have otherwise missed. No worries here! The app’s built in map includes all the metro stops & streets. Really, what more could one ask for?
Well, curious minds could ask for more information about the photos and the folks at Fotopedia obviously know this. There is clever built-in information button. A quick tap is your gateway to a Wikipedia summary (with link to full article) as well as a built in link to the Fotopedia site if you want to look for related photos. This feature is icing on the cake for a free app with 1,000 wonderfully taken photos!
Entertaining and educational there’s no reason not to download this app. It’s available for the iPhone and the iPad.
*Paris is the only first city to have its own dedicated app. Your city might be next. If you’d like your photos considered visit Fotopedia and find out more.
