NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 07/20/11 -- Travel Ad Network (TAN), the leading vertical media company in travel, announced today that its affiliate Let's Go brand will launch iPhone apps for New York, Paris, London, Amsterdam and Rome. This is the first time the 51-year old company, which publishes budget travel guides written entirely by students and updated every year, has built mobile apps.
A launch sponsor, to be determined, will provide free downloads of the apps for one month after which, each app will be sold in the iTunes store for $2.99. Among the features of the new apps will be recommendations of sights, activities, food, accommodation, shops and more; the ability to share your whereabouts with Facebook friends as you travel; recommended itineraries; GPS mapping and a quick bookmark function for pre-trip and on-the-go-planning.
"While nothing will replace having one of Let's Go's 49 comprehensive print guides in your pocket or backpack, the new Let's Go mobile apps will feature top line information on affordable dining, accommodations, sights and attractions, to make it easy for iPhone users to get details and prices while travelling," says Jen Gold, Director of Product Development at Travel Ad Network.
