Excellent App!
by Najola51 on 2019/04/01 07:11
I got this app a year ago, when I was going with my husband to NYC. We’d been before, and wanted to see and experience sites, food, etc. that we hadn’t seen before. This app provided lots of information on choices, locations, costs, and more. I’ve acquired several NYC apps, but this one is the best. The developer is very responsive to questions and technical assistance. Prior comments indicated problems with the app, but neither of us has experienced any technical issue. Both of us highly recommend this app to any NYC travelers!
What’s up?
by Rufus622 on 2018/05/20 22:41
I wonder what this app would be like if it would actually open.
Junk
by 4K65 on 2016/12/03 14:50
Don't waste your time. Slow to load and requires me,berahip before it reveals anything.
Awesome
by Alextgegreat7852 on 2016/08/20 04:55
Great app. Great format , easy to navigate, useful info that is accurate
Waste of money
by Yewune on 2016/05/18 23:30
I purchased the application but it doesn't open at all. If there was zero rating it will be yours.
Best Advice for NYC for $5
by Hilsongs on 2016/03/24 13:50
Truly exceptional advice and tour information for a first- time or return visit to NYC. Jeffrey's tips and etiquette notes are spot on and his recommendations for place visits were all highlights of our trip. Very much worth the $5!
Beware
by Chienes on 2016/03/15 22:04
So far plagued with problems
Was great, now not so much
by Banaoire on 2016/02/15 16:51
I got this app in 2013 and used it extensively when my daughter and I were in NYC for a week, and again in 2014. Since then, I haven't returned to NYC, and I haven't touched it. Now, I'm planning a return trip, and started it up again. It either doesn't like my iPad 2 or it's full of bugs, because it sure doesn't look or work the same as it used to. Very sad. The info in this app is some of the best, and most useful. But if I can't get pages to load, what good is it?
Great app... even for the Native New Yorker
by RobertJ999 on 2016/01/10 02:06
I purchased this app years ago and it's still my "go to" when visiting NYC, which is often. Great info on where to go, what to see and what to do... and the content is up to date. When I had an issue that the app would not open for me, Jeffery had the problem resolved in no time. So customer service gets an A+ as well. This app is a must for anyone who wants to get the most out of their NYC visit.
Disappointed NYC trip
by Disappointed NYC trip on 2015/12/20 13:55
Purchased this app years ago. At the time, I paid a premium price compared to other apps that offered the exact same features. On a recent trip to NYC went to use the app and was VERY UPSET that it required additional fees for the EXACT SAME features I already paid for originally had access to!! Very disappointed - this is not right!!!
Great App! Great service!
by cibelebuda on 2015/11/08 21:58
Got this app to plan our first family trip to NYC. Great tips and easy to use and navigate. Best thing about it is the fantastic customer service - Jeffrey is quick to answer any questions you might have - like having a very knowledgeable friend in NYC! Definitely recommend!

by Mary Texas on 2014/12/19 17:40
This might be a great app for pre-planning a trip via non-mobile device, but while in NYC (when you really need it) using this on an iPhone didn't open up... Crashes on ever attempt. Truly a waste of $5!
Nope, crashes
by dstacy on 2014/11/23 15:01
Crashes right away when it tries to open on an iPhone 5
Invaluable!
by erikocc on 2014/11/12 00:19
This app was fantastic in prepping for our trip, getting to know all kinds of little details and secrets about NYC. We also used it throughout the trip, looking at the map to see if he had any notes about where we were at. Thanks for all the effort put into it! Wish there was this kind of easy sensical guide for every city without all the fluff!!
Only NYC app you will need!
by Mil. Mom on 2014/11/04 19:07
So glad I bought this app! It made planning our 25th anniversary trip to NYC so much easier! Well worth the money.. Buy the app, you won't regret it.
Crashes!
by Tom in DE on 2014/09/08 03:19
I just paid for this and it crashes immediately. If goes to a welcome screen then immediately shuts off. I tried deleting it and reloading, shut off phone and nothing works!!! NOT happy!!
great app!
by Hicproid on 2014/07/11 15:08
This app was great for planning our trip. Our friends and family in NYC agreed with everything the apps author said and reviewed. I also liked that people can comment in-app and get responses from the author. Great job on this very thorough app. Thanks! Michael H.
Awesome App! All you need
by Nutaskeet on 2014/07/10 20:45
Love this app! Has EVERYTHING! The only thing I would add is the ability to bookmark certain places and things that I just learned about rather than having to browse through all to find it again if I even remember it. Ability to bookmark would have put it over the top! But still the most comprehensive and worth the money!
Awesome App
by Swister3 on 2014/06/03 01:51
I am so happy I paid for and downloaded this app! It was worth every penny. It was very detailed and informative. I was able to plan out our entire trip to NYC with this app. We loved all the must do's and also the restaurant/eating suggestions. Great tips on planes/trains/cabs too. Excellent app and very well done. It was like having a friend give us tips on everything for our visit to the city. Highly recommend.
Best App
by cyoungblood on 2014/05/26 12:47
This app was very detailed and helpful. Made touring NYC easy and fun. We would have wasted time without using this app. Also made planning our trip EASY! Enjoyed NYC! Thanks
Not working

Is not working with version 7 can you fix please
My Guide in my hand
by Cruisinaltitude.com on 2014/05/06 19:58
Jeffrey did a stellar job on this app. Being an airport geek, I love the detailed information he gives on the airport. Plus it always tells me how far away I am from the airport. Love that. The app is a great companion for any trip to New York, as such, I'd recommend it. It's like having my own guide in my hand.
The Best $5 I've ever spent
by Sarah Richter on 2014/01/16 08:18
I can't imagine my trip to New York without this app! I started using it months before my trip to plan what I wanted to do. The author lists and describes dozens upon dozens of New York landmarks, both major and minor, restaurants, areas, and activities. You can favorite the ones you are interested in, and you can view them on a map. This was so helpful in planning our itinerary. My Facebook friends were astonished at how much I was able see and do in 3 days (and during Hercules, the blizzard!) and I credit this app with helping us see and learn so much. Well worth the $5!
Well Worth Paying For
by TulareGuy559 on 2013/11/23 13:34
I rarely write reviews, but this app is too good not to acknowledge it. I would give it 4.5 stars, in reality. The author does a fabulous job of describing locations - his own words and reviews, not from a Wiki or other source (at least to my knowledge). I'd had a number of other NYC apps, each with limited coverage, hard to navigate interface, etc; I wish I'd just bought this from the beginning, as it made researching what we wanted to do in NY a breeze. I particularly like how I can save locations to my favorites and then see my favorites on the map; with a place as vast as NYC, strategically hitting places you want to see by neighborhood is an absolute must, so this app has become my only "go to" for exploring (with a little Yelp and Google Maps of course). The recent update seems to have solved some minor stability issues (it could crash occasionally) and the offline content downloads. Extremely minor interface glitches sometimes come up, but are not at all a detraction. My only wish list for this (and why I knocked it down a half star) is that I'd love to save my favorites to multiple devices. I do my research on my iPad, but then am exploring the city on my iPhone; I wish I could synchronize across my devices so I don't have to save a favorite twice. Otherwise, this is well worth the $5, particularly because you can ask the author questions - its like having a tour guide on standby!
Really buggy
by Kitjsh on 2013/11/21 16:45
Clunky, buggy app that is very awkward to use. Deleted it.
Fabulous app to navigate NYC for newbees and oldies
by Karlarxcy on 2013/09/01 10:33
Haven't been back to NY in many years. Wanted to visit some old haunts and new sites. This app helped me lay out my week, choose sites wisely and efficiently navigate the city. Found out about this app at Chelsea Market and downloaded it on recommendation card at Fat Witch, Chelsea Market. Almost hesitated when I saw the purchase price but well worth the investment. Thanks for this honest evaluation of city sites. Well done!
A Must!!
by zachb1974 on 2013/08/27 21:32
This was my NYC go to app! Everything you need is here. I spent three weeks in the city and I would refer to this app multiple times a day. This app includes popular destinations as well as other spots around the city that may not have been on your itinerary. Certain reputable restaurants and shops are also profiled. Also included are directions to each place. Extremely user friendly and highly recommended - though I had downloaded other NYC apps, I always went back to this one!
Very helpful
by Jdbqrte on 2013/08/20 19:35
I love this app! I haven't been on my trip yet but I come to this app everytime I'm trying to plan. It has so much information. It's honest and factual. Not only that the author personally answers any questions you may have. I was hesitant to purchase it because of the price but I am Very glad I did!!
Terrible app
by Rawlsio on 2013/08/15 12:48
Don't buy this thing!! Terrible design (confusing interface, illogical organization) and extraordinarily poor execution, featuring juvenile commentary on places and things and the SLOWEST scrolling I have ever experienced in an iPhone app. Using the maps to try understand what is where is a genuinely painful experience.
Terrible!
by Urafrutlup on 2013/08/04 13:13
This app won't stay open and working for more than 45 seconds! What a waste of money! What's the point of purchasing a product that lasts less than a minute? I'd have been happier donating my $5 to a bum on the street!
Great app!
by Kev1960 on 2013/08/03 02:54
Has me more excited about our trip! Part 2..,(after the trip) this app is a must-have for tourists like me & would probably be useful to even the most native-New Yorker!
Great App
by Optics2000 on 2013/07/10 17:15
Information is very accurate. Loads great everytime
Good info..but freezes often
by RikyRik on 2013/07/07 22:35
This app has an awful lot of great, useful info. When it works. It currently freezes every 2 minutes.
Fantastic app
by Ki-phone on 2013/06/30 07:03
Extremely useful with tops and sprinkles of humor included. It's like having a personal tour guide with you. Well worth the asking price.
Great!
by The Lost Traveler on 2013/06/23 14:39
I have never been to New York, and this app gave me some great places to go that I would have never known about. Great advise, tips, and the distance from your location and how to get there feature was a plus. It did shut down a couple times, but I had no problems bringing it back up and getting from it what I needed. A must for the New York traveler
Wow! This app has depth
by thisguyalton on 2013/06/03 23:10
This is a must have, go to app for visiting NYC. Well written content that is generous with links when appropriate . This is among the best apps I have overall - five stars for sure.
Best NY Tourist App!
by Sammie_Rae on 2013/05/19 19:46
We are planning a trip to NY soon and I'm so glad I purchased this APP! It will be very helpful. Love the messages and quick responses! Just wish you had Carlos Bakery listed as a location. :). Thanks for creating such a great APP!
Pesters you to rate it
by Hatetrippit on 2013/05/03 23:35
This ap has a pop up that pesters you to rate it every time you open it. Very annoying. So here's the rating. Can you stop now?
Excellent resource for getting around NYC
by Pmcgill2970 on 2013/04/07 12:23
This app is a "must have" for New York. References exist for virtually everything - sightseeing, dining, museums, etc. A nice feature is the ability to go directly to a map and directions on how to get somewhere. The only downgrade I have is not for content, but the fact that the app badgers you for a rating every time you open it, until you give it one. I don't think it is fair to give a rating until you have a chance to use it. Otherwise, it works well, and has excellent content!
Excelente !!
by MaxPower35 on 2013/04/03 02:55
Imprescindible a la hora de conocer NY
Very helpful app
by Messiet on 2013/03/24 12:23
This is my to go app when visiting the city.
A ton of information at Your finger tips
by Markthespot246 on 2013/03/21 23:50
The response time and feedback was 100%. You feel as if you have a travel companion available if needed for suggestions. Got to tweak some areas but for the most part a real treat, This app is a great tool for the ins and outs of this great city.
Excellent, timely information
by sangiovese9 on 2013/03/21 17:51
This app has surpassed others that I've used in planning my fourth vacation to the city. It has both breadth and depth of information, yet maintains a concise and easily navigable interface.
NY navigator
by beastmodein on 2013/03/19 11:57
Great app for NY city visit. Very easy to navigate app! Many links and great tips that take you right to online ticket purchases for NY landmarks.
Great NYC trip planning and information on everything about the city
by Deppfan1655 on 2013/03/12 03:14
This app really helped me plan and enjoy my trip to NYC. I've been to the city multiple times, but having an instant on-the-go reference guide made me feel more comfortable walking around the city without needing a local New Yorker to lead the way. A must have if you're visiting the city for the first time or the fifteenth. It even provides information on how to navigate the city's massive and very confusing mass transit system. Great app!
Keeps crashing
by Hogan mom5 on 2013/03/06 01:54
The first 15 minutes I had this app it crashed more than 10x!! Worst app I ever paid money for!! Info is great and very helpful for a New York newbie if I could only keep the app open.
Native New Yorker
by Brooklyn Animal Lover on 2013/02/03 14:16
Lived in NYC my whole life and learned a lot I didn't know about New York...very useful app!
Love it
by Smtwn on 2013/02/01 14:45
Organized very well. Love the subway routings for each entry. Really like the fact that there are out of the way places mentioned. This will be my 4th trip to NY and I feel more confident in exploring new places because of the guidance this app gives.
Looks Promising
by Han5Frit2 on 2013/01/18 19:34
At this point I'm only making plans to visit NYC, have not had the opportunity to use it "on site." This App allows the user to save attractions of their own interest, and then view those interests on a map, so that plans can be made. I will update my review (and probably give this App all five stars) after my visit.
Great app for NYC visitors
by Creek28 on 2013/01/02 16:17
Does a good job with the outer boroughs as well as Manhattan!!
GREAT APP!
by lcndga on 2012/12/19 04:25
I love that the guide has links to everything within it. So nice to not have to toggle back and forth between sites. Very thorough. Thank you.
Wonderful Resource!
by Dallas Mama of 3 on 2012/12/03 01:18
Have completed two trips to NYC using this APP. The info is precise and very useful. Made traveling to the Big Apple a breeze and took a lot of stress out of planning the trip. HIGHLY recommend this tool!
Fantastic app
by Harmbo on 2012/11/16 14:02
Any piece of information one is looking for this app has. Very helpful, worth the money.
Worth the buy
by The voice of reasoning on 2012/11/02 10:53
This guide has by far exceeded my expectations and is second to none in my opinion.
Totally worth every penny.
by CHAOSBURGER on 2012/09/20 12:11
Saved our trip. We love this app.
Awesome!
by Sandjjy on 2012/09/18 23:06
This app was so useful on our trip to New York! I used it the entire time we were there. I don't know how we would have gotten around without it! It points out fun things to do and helps you plan the trip efficiently so you get to see everything you planned along with some extra places I wouldn't have thought off. We checked off every single thing on our to do list! The map and directions were also really useful in helping us find our way around. It's definitely a must if you're going to New York! The only thing that it needs work on is that it does tend to crash at times.
The Best
by rws262 on 2012/09/07 07:24
Absolutely amazing app!! Just perfect for a first time vacation in New York City.

I have The New York City Essentials Guide iPhone App for My Apple iPhone 4 32GB & I love the App, I live in New York in The Bronx & I read the App all the time when I go to Manhattan New York City & also when I'm at Home & you get 5 Stars from me & The Service I use for My Apple iPhone 4 32GB is Verizon Wireless stay cool from Your Fan & Costumer Byron. :)
Definitely worth the money!
by New York Visitor on 2012/08/21 00:29
Very helpful guide! We also bought the standard tour books, but we referred to this almost exclusively. The advice seemed much more practical than the typical guidebook (you get the real "insider's view"). It's arranged alphabetically by key topics, which is helpful when your looking items up in real time. It maps out each site and even estimates cab fare (it's not exact of course but gives a good ballpark estimate). Also identifies nearby subway stops to help you plan your next steps. You can even leave questions for the author, who responds back quickly. All this is topped off by a good sense of humor.
Quick and easy way to discover the gems of NYC
by Guitarminator on 2012/08/07 11:41
It easily allows you to discover and create a favorites list of the things tha interest you in NYC from a list of the top things, from shopping to eating, to entertainment to site seeing.
It made the trip enjoyable
by Paulusxvi on 2012/07/29 23:53
Thanks for such a useful app! It has helped direct walking tours nd to decipher the subways. Worth twice the cost,
Wish I'd started using it earlier
by Wood-eye on 2012/07/26 12:06
Especially helpful for walking and using public transport. Nice link up with maps!
Just great!
by Tedb42 on 2012/07/25 22:43
This made our week in NYC go by without a hitch.. Highly recommended....
Great App!!!
by HCQ22 on 2012/07/25 18:40
I considered not getting this app because I figured the free ones would get me the same info... I'm so glad I ended up getting it! We used it for our 1st trip to NYC and it was extremely helpful! I loved the ability to look up things by their proximity to where we were! Also, the hints which subway/bus lines to take were lifesavers an made getting between attractions so easy! I will be recommending this to any friend who visits NYC!!
Hooray for NYC
by Twins4Sue on 2012/07/16 01:24
Planning my first trip to NYC in December! Having fun exploring the adventures, restaurants, places of interest. Thank you!
Best guide to NYC
by D in CT on 2012/07/09 22:27
I've used lots of guidebooks over the years, but this app is by the far the best and most convenient. I've seen more cool stuff in NYC over last 3 days using this app than I have in over 20 years of living within commuting distance of the city. Lots of great insider tips and convenient links to websites for schedules and tickets. Easy to navigate with lots of suggestions to maximize your sightseeing experience - both for first-timers, and seasoned New Yorkers.
Made my trip a breeze!
by YME1963 on 2012/07/07 04:14
Great app for on-the-go travel. I used the distance sorter and it was great!!
Impressive app.
by ByteAssassin on 2012/07/04 16:32
I went on a trip to New York with my daughter, and this app pointed out a lot of things that you do for free and things that you could see that were at little cost. I thought the layout and content was so useful I bout the Las Vegas app too. I have been thrilled with the suggestions. I also love the author's choices for the top things to do, and I hunted down dozens of the best pizza places and I agree Pizza Suprema is the best there in Manhattan. try the authors lists for cool item to do in the app.
Crashes often
by Pamrx on 2012/06/20 02:37
Not helpful if I can't use it. Disappointing.
A must!
by Annfhg on 2012/06/10 23:19
I've been to NYC many times and this app has finally allowed me to leave the big guide book at home. With all The info on my phone I was able to explore to my heart's content. Well Done!!
Wonderful app
by Brianmidd on 2012/06/10 20:54
I have never bothered to review an app before, but I wanted to express my appreciation for this wonderfully designed app. I was traveling to NYC with my wife in May 2012 and was concerned because I had never been there before. This app was like my own personal tour guide, helping navigate the urban jungle. My favorite part is that you can submit the author your own questions, which he will answer in the app or by email. Well done! My only gripe is that the app crashed a few times on my iPhone 4. No problems though on my iPad 2.
Highly Recommended
by 2New2NYC on 2012/05/28 03:25
My daughter and I are visiting NYC next month. I'm so glad to have found this app. It is full of robust, current content with web links, maps, money-saving advice, hot picks, do's and dont's, and more. GPS will come in handy on walking tours. Lots of photos, transportation advice, etc., etc. This app is very intuitive and simple to use with search feature, browse attractions by area of town, and reviews. This is better than any paper guide. Time and money-saving tips makes this app worth every penny.
Best NYC App of All!!!
by mikelr610 on 2012/05/20 15:41
I'm from TX and visit NYC pretty regularly. This is absolutely the best NYC app of the many I've downloaded with great information and helps in finding the best locations to go to. Even better is the personal resonse available in the comments section. If you viusit NYC and don't use this exensively, you're missing out.
Great app, one of the best I've downloaded
by Traveler6898 on 2012/05/11 00:47
It's my first time trying out a guidebook app and I loved this one. I lived in NYC and have family in the area (not in the city though) and this is by far the best guidebook I have used. I'm usually partial to the lonely planet but this beats it hands down. I used it on my iPad and it's much better than using a book. I didn't even have 3G and I still found it useful. Not too much text, subway connections to every destination -- just the essentials for a quick trip (I did a one day trip with this book). Though, this leads me to my only gripe. It's not obvious, but you really might want to have 3G while using it. I wasn't able to find very much free wifi in the city. Quite a few links are links to websites. Also, a lot of pictures (any pictures?) aren't fully downloaded as part of the package install.
A great help!
by Chicagorex on 2012/05/09 13:29
My wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary by spending 3 nights in Times Square at the Doubletree Hilton. This application combined with web research really helped narrow down the options. We ended our evenings at the R Lounge in Times Square as the guide suggests. We would have never known that the R Lounge was in The Renaissance hotel across the street without this app. Other highlights were The Halal guys street cart, Soup Man, Flat Iron district. The ability to have favorites with all the addresses, info, phone numbers available proved to be invaluable. Thankfully, I had this app about 1 week before we went. I had time to research. Think of it this way, if you spend 4 to 5 dollars on this app and it saves you a wasted cab ride, you've already paid for the app with 1/2 of a cab fare! We visited the 911 memorial, got on Letterman, Empire State Building tour, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Central Park - We love NY! The application allows you to comment and give observations to help fellow travelers. Jeffrey is very responsive. I am not suggesting this is the only resource your need for planning a trip to NYC - do your homework. We knew exactly what restaurants we were going to as we are foodies, but the app helped us know what things to see along the way and helped us plan our itinerary accordingly! This app is a no brainer.

Great ap everything was just as you said it would be. I would recommend it for any NY visitor!
Apple of my eye!
by Fire@Will on 2012/04/12 17:28
I just spent a week in NYC with my wife and two kids (ages 6&8) and used this app almost exclusively. It is an invaluable resource in the city and worth every penny. The app is much easier to use while on the streets than a guide book. It is intuitive and has a great interface. I particularly liked the interactive map feature that allows you to see attractions near your current location. We found several "hidden gems" that we would have otherwise missed. Great job, and highly recommended!!
Keeps Crashing (iPad and iPhone)
by Fmario20 on 2012/04/06 13:29
The App looks great but I can't go 3 min without crashing. I tried it in my 3rd gen iPad and 4s with same results!! If this doesn't change then it is a great useless App!
Loved it!!!
by kristiv2 on 2012/03/30 16:07
This app acted as our tour guide around Manhattan. It was so helpful to be able to check the map feature to see what was nearby. The extra info listed helped us to feel like we knew a bit about various places even down to discovering that the best rated public restroom was nearby when we were at Bryant Park. This app is like having a local in my pocket!!
Must Have Before You Go!
by Leah114 on 2012/03/19 22:43
I am leaving for NYC in a week and was feeling a bit overwhelmed trying to figure out what I wanted to see, and where it was located, and how I was going to get there. Just bought this app last night and my apprehension is gone! It is absolutely wonderful....so easy to navigate and the descriptions are very thorough. Looking at your pictures has given me some great ideas for my own picture-taking! Every time I thought I had a question I was able to navigate somewhere and find the answer. You did a great job and I highly recommend this to anyone going to NYC. My only other recommendation is that you buy this app early enough so that you have time to really look at it. This is totally worth the price and then some! Thanks! NYC here I come!
Awesome!
by Ltgreat on 2012/02/22 15:42
Well worth the money. Makes the city easy for those who have never been.
Wow
by Christian196 on 2012/01/29 04:38
I never review apps but I was so impressed with this one I felt it was a disservice not to. I just spent the whole day in the city (probably about my 15th time here) and this app simplified everything immensely. Need a place to eat? This'll do it. Need an idea for what to do? This app will do that too. Shopping, transportation, food, entertainment and even under the radar places most apps miss are all found Here. My favorite part is that it practically acts as a gps. It shows where you need to go on the map and updates as you walk so you're always sure you're on the right track. Of you get one app, make it this one. So worth it.
Worth the money...
by Bobby_D on 2011/12/29 04:48
I used this application extensively on my first trip to NYC. I too purchased other applications but I inevitably fell back on this one. I found that all the information was complete, reliable, and very current. Price? $4.99 initially seemed steep, but I now consider it a "drop in the bucket" after a day in the city!
Awesome app!!!
by Jeannie Hopkins on 2011/12/21 16:14
This is by far the best app for anyone traveling to NYC...I bought four apps the same day to research NYC and plan out my up coming trip...This app has everything u could need.Awesome now can't wait for my trip with my family on Christmas...
Not impressed
by Dageper on 2011/12/19 00:00
It is ok but need a searh feature
Fantastic
by Jay Al on 2011/12/09 12:30
I spent the last four days on vacation in NYC with my family...This app saved my life. You can easily navigate the city with the map feature and it allows you to see the places that you don't want to miss (that might be right around the corner)...Highly recommend this app for people visiting NYC and a little scared to go it alone....This app is like having your own tour guide...
OUTSTANDING!
by roadrunn3r on 2011/11/27 12:30
Super informative app for the tourist in NYC. Used this app to plan out our trip everyday as we went to the sites we had wanted to see. First time traveler to NYC and it was a great tool.
Great app but crashes & drains battery
by martinsuchy on 2011/11/22 19:19
I just spent 18 days in NYC and used this app every day. The app itself works great. Besides the list feature which i used all the time, I especially like the map & filter feature that tells you attractions/sites around you and shows you pictures so you know what you're looking for. The comments/descriptions and links to nearby sites are very helpful and accurate and sometimes very funny. Content-wise & functionality I give this app 5+ stars. It's really good. However, the app crashes ALL the time. Sometimes during frequent use it crashes once a minute!!! It reboots itself quickly but you have to navigate where you left off. It's annoying but workable. Additionally, it drains the battery very fast even if not in active use. If it just sits in the background my battery was completely depleted in about 6 to 8 hrs without any use of the phone! You have to shut the app down by deleting it from the cache if you are not using it in order to preserve your battery. Again, it's annoying but you can do the cache cleanup to save your battery. Finally, the update released yesterday (November 21) did not install and prevented all other updates from installing (my phone had 9 updates to install yesterday). Today I removed this NYC app and the other 8 apps updated successfully. I did not reinstall this NYC app today so I cannot tell you whether the latest update fixed the crashing and battery problems. Due to frequent crashes/reboots and excessive battery usage while running the app in the background I give this app 0 stars so on average the app gets 2.5 stars from me (5 stars for content and functionality each, and 0 stars for stability and battery usage). I would advice the content author to find new iPhone programmers and develop a whole new app. My phone is iPhone 3GS with iOS 5.0.1
Extremely disappointed
by 12 String Rebel on 2011/11/11 15:39
Maybe NYC is just too big for a little app, but I found this one worthless.
Pretty good - nice map!
by Astro Turf on 2011/10/24 04:36
I like the feature to locate yourself on the map and just see what's around you. Plenty of photos, but only short descriptions of each place. I think they need to be about twice as long. It is also crashing A LOT. Pretty much all the time. I guess it has to do with iOS5 since no one else complained yet and the other reviews are older. Otherwise it's fun to use!
Love this app
by CaliforniaExpert on 2011/09/08 01:41
New York City is fast-paced and fabulous, and this app brings the city to life in vivid detail. The author's writing is witty and fun, and he clearly has a loyal fan base. Unlike paperback guidebooks, this app is interactive. So if you have a question about an entry, it's usually answered the same day! How cool is that?
Not worth 5 bucks
by Joe Wen on 2011/08/27 18:41
In my opinion
Are You Ready?
by JBnRB on 2011/08/21 22:37
Live in CT. Been to the city a million times… Bought this app for a NY visit with my Girl from DE… Honest to goodness, if you go to NY…get this app whatever you think your experience with the city is.……
Outstanding!
by bawebb on 2011/07/17 18:13
Just got back from NY with 14y old son. 1st time ever to Big Apple. Had this app, the NYC pass app and the subway app. Everything worked flawlessly. I highly recommend them all.
Solid travel guide to New York City
by Trumeister on 2011/07/10 14:29
This app is full of useful info. There are numerous ways of slicing and dicing the info but my favorite is the map that shows where every attraction is. You can drill down on each and see details on each as well as checking out the photos. It isn't a hotel or food guide but it doesn't claim to be. My only feedback is I'd like to see a few more of the lesser known sights as well. But it covers the major sights well.

Used it today.....midtown walking tour was an excellent resourse!
Best money I ever spent!
by stackman67 on 2011/06/18 12:36
The app is awesome, and was invaluable for our NYC trip. Even better than the app is the author and his support of the app. He will help you with any questions you have about NYC, he definitely goes the extra mile. Buying this app was the best money I ever spent.

Very Nice App...I actually used it the whole week while in NY...very helpful...can't go wrong...GET IT !!!
Awesome and essential app!
by D J C K on 2011/04/28 02:03
This and KickMap are mandatory for any newbie headed to NYC. You will def get your money out of it and discover things you wouldn't have on your own! Great job! C
Excellent resource for getting around NYC
by Pmcgill2970 on 2013/04/07 12:23
This app is a "must have" for New York. References exist for virtually everything - sightseeing, dining, museums, etc. A nice feature is the ability to go directly to a map and directions on how to get somewhere. The only downgrade I have is not for content, but the fact that the app badgers you for a rating every time you open it, until you give it one. I don't think it is fair to give a rating until you have a chance to use it. Otherwise, it works well, and has excellent content!
Excellent App!
by Najola51 on 2019/04/01 07:11
I got this app a year ago, when I was going with my husband to NYC. We’d been before, and wanted to see and experience sites, food, etc. that we hadn’t seen before. This app provided lots of information on choices, locations, costs, and more. I’ve acquired several NYC apps, but this one is the best. The developer is very responsive to questions and technical assistance. Prior comments indicated problems with the app, but neither of us has experienced any technical issue. Both of us highly recommend this app to any NYC travelers!
What’s up?
by Rufus622 on 2018/05/20 22:41
I wonder what this app would be like if it would actually open.
Well Worth Paying For
by TulareGuy559 on 2013/11/23 13:34
I rarely write reviews, but this app is too good not to acknowledge it. I would give it 4.5 stars, in reality. The author does a fabulous job of describing locations - his own words and reviews, not from a Wiki or other source (at least to my knowledge). I'd had a number of other NYC apps, each with limited coverage, hard to navigate interface, etc; I wish I'd just bought this from the beginning, as it made researching what we wanted to do in NY a breeze. I particularly like how I can save locations to my favorites and then see my favorites on the map; with a place as vast as NYC, strategically hitting places you want to see by neighborhood is an absolute must, so this app has become my only "go to" for exploring (with a little Yelp and Google Maps of course). The recent update seems to have solved some minor stability issues (it could crash occasionally) and the offline content downloads. Extremely minor interface glitches sometimes come up, but are not at all a detraction. My only wish list for this (and why I knocked it down a half star) is that I'd love to save my favorites to multiple devices. I do my research on my iPad, but then am exploring the city on my iPhone; I wish I could synchronize across my devices so I don't have to save a favorite twice. Otherwise, this is well worth the $5, particularly because you can ask the author questions - its like having a tour guide on standby!
A great help!
by Chicagorex on 2012/05/09 13:29
My wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary by spending 3 nights in Times Square at the Doubletree Hilton. This application combined with web research really helped narrow down the options. We ended our evenings at the R Lounge in Times Square as the guide suggests. We would have never known that the R Lounge was in The Renaissance hotel across the street without this app. Other highlights were The Halal guys street cart, Soup Man, Flat Iron district. The ability to have favorites with all the addresses, info, phone numbers available proved to be invaluable. Thankfully, I had this app about 1 week before we went. I had time to research. Think of it this way, if you spend 4 to 5 dollars on this app and it saves you a wasted cab ride, you've already paid for the app with 1/2 of a cab fare! We visited the 911 memorial, got on Letterman, Empire State Building tour, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Central Park - We love NY! The application allows you to comment and give observations to help fellow travelers. Jeffrey is very responsive. I am not suggesting this is the only resource your need for planning a trip to NYC - do your homework. We knew exactly what restaurants we were going to as we are foodies, but the app helped us know what things to see along the way and helped us plan our itinerary accordingly! This app is a no brainer.
Must Have Before You Go!
by Leah114 on 2012/03/19 22:43
I am leaving for NYC in a week and was feeling a bit overwhelmed trying to figure out what I wanted to see, and where it was located, and how I was going to get there. Just bought this app last night and my apprehension is gone! It is absolutely wonderful....so easy to navigate and the descriptions are very thorough. Looking at your pictures has given me some great ideas for my own picture-taking! Every time I thought I had a question I was able to navigate somewhere and find the answer. You did a great job and I highly recommend this to anyone going to NYC. My only other recommendation is that you buy this app early enough so that you have time to really look at it. This is totally worth the price and then some! Thanks! NYC here I come!
Great app, one of the best I've downloaded
by Traveler6898 on 2012/05/11 00:47
It's my first time trying out a guidebook app and I loved this one. I lived in NYC and have family in the area (not in the city though) and this is by far the best guidebook I have used. I'm usually partial to the lonely planet but this beats it hands down. I used it on my iPad and it's much better than using a book. I didn't even have 3G and I still found it useful. Not too much text, subway connections to every destination -- just the essentials for a quick trip (I did a one day trip with this book). Though, this leads me to my only gripe. It's not obvious, but you really might want to have 3G while using it. I wasn't able to find very much free wifi in the city. Quite a few links are links to websites. Also, a lot of pictures (any pictures?) aren't fully downloaded as part of the package install.
Definitely worth the money!
by New York Visitor on 2012/08/21 00:29
Very helpful guide! We also bought the standard tour books, but we referred to this almost exclusively. The advice seemed much more practical than the typical guidebook (you get the real "insider's view"). It's arranged alphabetically by key topics, which is helpful when your looking items up in real time. It maps out each site and even estimates cab fare (it's not exact of course but gives a good ballpark estimate). Also identifies nearby subway stops to help you plan your next steps. You can even leave questions for the author, who responds back quickly. All this is topped off by a good sense of humor.
Wow

by Sandjjy on 2012/09/18 23:06
This app was so useful on our trip to New York! I used it the entire time we were there. I don't know how we would have gotten around without it! It points out fun things to do and helps you plan the trip efficiently so you get to see everything you planned along with some extra places I wouldn't have thought off. We checked off every single thing on our to do list! The map and directions were also really useful in helping us find our way around. It's definitely a must if you're going to New York! The only thing that it needs work on is that it does tend to crash at times.
The Best $5 I've ever spent
by Sarah Richter on 2014/01/16 08:18
I can't imagine my trip to New York without this app! I started using it months before my trip to plan what I wanted to do. The author lists and describes dozens upon dozens of New York landmarks, both major and minor, restaurants, areas, and activities. You can favorite the ones you are interested in, and you can view them on a map. This was so helpful in planning our itinerary. My Facebook friends were astonished at how much I was able see and do in 3 days (and during Hercules, the blizzard!) and I credit this app with helping us see and learn so much. Well worth the $5!
Apple of my eye!
by Fire@Will on 2012/04/12 17:28
I just spent a week in NYC with my wife and two kids (ages 6&8) and used this app almost exclusively. It is an invaluable resource in the city and worth every penny. The app is much easier to use while on the streets than a guide book. It is intuitive and has a great interface. I particularly liked the interactive map feature that allows you to see attractions near your current location. We found several "hidden gems" that we would have otherwise missed. Great job, and highly recommended!!
Highly Recommended
by 2New2NYC on 2012/05/28 03:25
My daughter and I are visiting NYC next month. I'm so glad to have found this app. It is full of robust, current content with web links, maps, money-saving advice, hot picks, do's and dont's, and more. GPS will come in handy on walking tours. Lots of photos, transportation advice, etc., etc. This app is very intuitive and simple to use with search feature, browse attractions by area of town, and reviews. This is better than any paper guide. Time and money-saving tips makes this app worth every penny.
A Must!!
by zachb1974 on 2013/08/27 21:32
This was my NYC go to app! Everything you need is here. I spent three weeks in the city and I would refer to this app multiple times a day. This app includes popular destinations as well as other spots around the city that may not have been on your itinerary. Certain reputable restaurants and shops are also profiled. Also included are directions to each place. Extremely user friendly and highly recommended - though I had downloaded other NYC apps, I always went back to this one!
Great NYC trip planning and information on everything about the city
by Deppfan1655 on 2013/03/12 03:14
This app really helped me plan and enjoy my trip to NYC. I've been to the city multiple times, but having an instant on-the-go reference guide made me feel more comfortable walking around the city without needing a local New Yorker to lead the way. A must have if you're visiting the city for the first time or the fifteenth. It even provides information on how to navigate the city's massive and very confusing mass transit system. Great app!
Wonderful app
by Brianmidd on 2012/06/10 20:54
I have never bothered to review an app before, but I wanted to express my appreciation for this wonderfully designed app. I was traveling to NYC with my wife in May 2012 and was concerned because I had never been there before. This app was like my own personal tour guide, helping navigate the urban jungle. My favorite part is that you can submit the author your own questions, which he will answer in the app or by email. Well done! My only gripe is that the app crashed a few times on my iPhone 4. No problems though on my iPad 2.

by ByteAssassin on 2012/07/04 16:32
I went on a trip to New York with my daughter, and this app pointed out a lot of things that you do for free and things that you could see that were at little cost. I thought the layout and content was so useful I bout the Las Vegas app too. I have been thrilled with the suggestions. I also love the author's choices for the top things to do, and I hunted down dozens of the best pizza places and I agree Pizza Suprema is the best there in Manhattan. try the authors lists for cool item to do in the app.
Great app... even for the Native New Yorker
by RobertJ999 on 2016/01/10 02:06
I purchased this app years ago and it's still my "go to" when visiting NYC, which is often. Great info on where to go, what to see and what to do... and the content is up to date. When I had an issue that the app would not open for me, Jeffery had the problem resolved in no time. So customer service gets an A+ as well. This app is a must for anyone who wants to get the most out of their NYC visit.
Great App!!!
by HCQ22 on 2012/07/25 18:40
I considered not getting this app because I figured the free ones would get me the same info... I'm so glad I ended up getting it! We used it for our 1st trip to NYC and it was extremely helpful! I loved the ability to look up things by their proximity to where we were! Also, the hints which subway/bus lines to take were lifesavers an made getting between attractions so easy! I will be recommending this to any friend who visits NYC!!
Best guide to NYC
by D in CT on 2012/07/09 22:27
I've used lots of guidebooks over the years, but this app is by the far the best and most convenient. I've seen more cool stuff in NYC over last 3 days using this app than I have in over 20 years of living within commuting distance of the city. Lots of great insider tips and convenient links to websites for schedules and tickets. Easy to navigate with lots of suggestions to maximize your sightseeing experience - both for first-timers, and seasoned New Yorkers.
THE best NYC app out there, period.
by TravelMagic on 2010/10/08 03:04
As an ex-New Yorker, I wanted an app for reference when I come back to visit with friends and family. This app is superb with tight writing, great helpful tips and all the practical info you need to have an awesome trip. In fact it's honestly one of the best travel apps I've ever bought. The author is a real travel expert who updates the info frequently. What more could you ask for? Buy it. New update runs flawlessly!
GREAT NYC trip app!!
by Izooks on 2010/08/11 11:31
I'm in NY right now and this app is great and works flawless! My wife before we left made a big map of NY and plotted all the places we wanted to go, this app does that plus gives you directions from where you are along with the information of your destination! If your planning a trip to NY and need info of what to do or places to see this is a must get app. Thanks to the developer for putting together an inexpensive tour guide app.
Fabulous app to navigate NYC for newbees and oldies
by Karlarxcy on 2013/09/01 10:33
Haven't been back to NY in many years. Wanted to visit some old haunts and new sites. This app helped me lay out my week, choose sites wisely and efficiently navigate the city. Found out about this app at Chelsea Market and downloaded it on recommendation card at Fat Witch, Chelsea Market. Almost hesitated when I saw the purchase price but well worth the investment. Thanks for this honest evaluation of city sites. Well done!
Awesome App
by Swister3 on 2014/06/03 01:51
I am so happy I paid for and downloaded this app! It was worth every penny. It was very detailed and informative. I was able to plan out our entire trip to NYC with this app. We loved all the must do's and also the restaurant/eating suggestions. Great tips on planes/trains/cabs too. Excellent app and very well done. It was like having a friend give us tips on everything for our visit to the city. Highly recommend.
Fantastic

I spent the last four days on vacation in NYC with my family...This app saved my life.

Good but not comprehensive
by lliz77 on 2010/11/21 20:39
This is not a complete guidebook. It only gives you information about a limited number of shops, restaurants etc. However, the info it gives is excellent. I've lived in new york for 20 years and learned lots of new and interesting and practical suggestions from this app. But if five dollars is a lot to you, buy a frommers guide book or go to a tourism website for more complete info.
Invaluable!
by erikocc on 2014/11/12 00:19
This app was fantastic in prepping for our trip, getting to know all kinds of little details and secrets about NYC. We also used it throughout the trip, looking at the map to see if he had any notes about where we were at. Thanks for all the effort put into it! Wish there was this kind of easy sensical guide for every city without all the fluff!!
Loved it!!!
by kristiv2 on 2012/03/30 16:07
This app acted as our tour guide around Manhattan. It was so helpful to be able to check the map feature to see what was nearby. The extra info listed helped us to feel like we knew a bit about various places even down to discovering that the best rated public restroom was nearby when we were at Bryant Park. This app is like having a local in my pocket!!
Great!
by The Lost Traveler on 2013/06/23 14:39
I have never been to New York, and this app gave me some great places to go that I would have never known about. Great advise, tips, and the distance from your location and how to get there feature was a plus. It did shut down a couple times, but I had no problems bringing it back up and getting from it what I needed. A must for the New York traveler
Great app!
by Flaminia Chapman- Rome Insider on 2011/04/21 08:57
There is so much info packed into this app- the 5$ price tag is a bargain. I especially love the Trip planning section, with helpful tips on tours, airports, free wifi locations, events, etc. The map feature is handy and will help you get around the city in a flash. Even though I lived in NY for a year after college, this app will help me find new places- can't wait to go next week!
Pretty good - nice map!
by Astro Turf on 2011/10/24 04:36
I like the feature to locate yourself on the map and just see what's around you. Plenty of photos, but only short descriptions of each place. I think they need to be about twice as long.

Live like a local
by FunkyDogMom on 2010/06/03 14:55
I've lived in NYC for 8 months and this app has been awesome. It helped me discover new hole-in-the-wall restaurants like Miss Mamie's Spoonbread Too and rediscover old faithfuls like Sylvia's (totally right about Mamie's mac-n-cheese!). Print guides are so often out of date - this one just keeps getting better. And I love the map directions - especially in NYC, having a pocket navigator is dreamy!
NYC State of Mind
by Superlos on 2010/08/23 04:02
I downloaded this app a week before I went to NYC on vacation and it was my guide every step of the way. Just enough info about all the major tourist spots and some not so touristy spots. Nice slideshows for every destination included and the maps feature never let me get lost! If you've never been to NYC and are looking for a nice tour guide, this is the one!
Awesome App! All you need
by Nutaskeet on 2014/07/10 20:45
Love this app! Has EVERYTHING! The only thing I would add is the ability to bookmark certain places and things that I just learned about rather than having to browse through all to find it again if I even remember it. Ability to bookmark would have put it over the top! But still the most comprehensive and worth the money!
Looks Promising
by Han5Frit2 on 2013/01/18 19:34
At this point I'm only making plans to visit NYC, have not had the opportunity to use it "on site." This App allows the user to save attractions of their own interest, and then view those interests on a map, so that plans can be made. I will update my review (and probably give this App all five stars) after my visit.
Was great, now not so much
by Banaoire on 2016/02/15 16:51
I got this app in 2013 and used it extensively when my daughter and I were in NYC for a week, and again in 2014. Since then, I haven't returned to NYC, and I haven't touched it. Now, I'm planning a return trip, and started it up again. It either doesn't like my iPad 2 or it's full of bugs, because it sure doesn't look or work the same as it used to. Very sad. The info in this app is some of the best, and most useful. But if I can't get pages to load, what good is it?

I found that all the information was complete, reliable, and very current. Price? $4.99 initially seemed steep, but I now consider it a "drop in the bucket" after a day in the city!
Best NYC App of All!!!
by mikelr610 on 2012/05/20 15:41
I'm from TX and visit NYC pretty regularly. This is absolutely the best NYC app of the many I've downloaded with great information and helps in finding the best locations to go to. Even better is the personal resonse available in the comments section. If you viusit NYC and don't use this exensively, you're missing out.
Very helpful
by Jdbqrte on 2013/08/20 19:35
I love this app! I haven't been on my trip yet but I come to this app everytime I'm trying to plan. It has so much information. It's honest and factual. Not only that the author personally answers any questions you may have. I was hesitant to purchase it because of the price but I am Very glad I did!!
Great App! Great service!
by cibelebuda on 2015/11/08 21:58
Got this app to plan our first family trip to NYC. Great tips and easy to use and navigate. Best thing about it is the fantastic customer service - Jeffrey is quick to answer any questions you might have - like having a very knowledgeable friend in NYC! Definitely recommend!
Amazing app!
by TexasMichi on 2009/11/01 16:16
This app is great and when I saw it in the store I was like mehh but then I actually got to see it and it is really a fantastic app! The pictures are really nice and the map helps a lot and the descriptions are really cool. I was thinking though, you should make one of these apps for a ton of different cities too!
Good App!!

NEVER been to NYC and this app was great when I used the distance feature and made my way through the city. The different locations that were listed to see was enough for a few days. Only problem is that the Map Application didnt work. (But I'm also using a 1st Gen iPhone).... Overall, good app to buy!
My Guide in my hand
by Cruisinaltitude.com on 2014/05/06 19:58
Jeffrey did a stellar job on this app. Being an airport geek, I love the detailed information he gives on the airport. Plus it always tells me how far away I am from the airport. Love that. The app is a great companion for any trip to New York, as such, I'd recommend it. It's like having my own guide in my hand.
Quick and easy way to discover the gems of NYC
by Guitarminator on 2012/08/07 11:41
It easily allows you to discover and create a favorites list of the things tha interest you in NYC from a list of the top things, from shopping to eating, to entertainment to site seeing.
Dude just buy it
by TasMN on 2010/11/20 04:56
Spent 3 days in NYC with my 10 yr old son and used this app tons--it is great. And the guy who made it listens to comments and continues to improve info and advice. Seriously, we found some cheap eats and other cool stuff we would have missed otherwise
Love it
by Smtwn on 2013/02/01 14:45
Organized very well. Love the subway routings for each entry. Really like the fact that there are out of the way places mentioned. This will be my 4th trip to NY and I feel more confident in exploring new places because of the guidance this app gives.
Best money I ever spent!
by stackman67 on 2011/06/18 12:36
The app is awesome, and was invaluable for our NYC trip. Even better than the app is the author and his support of the app. He will help you with any questions you have about NYC, he definitely goes the extra mile. Buying this app was the best money I ever spent.

Excellent App!
by Najola51 on 2019/04/01 07:11
I got this app a year ago, when I was going with my husband to NYC. We’d been before, and wanted to see and experience sites, food, etc. that we hadn’t seen before. This app provided lots of information on choices, locations, costs, and more. I’ve acquired several NYC apps, but this one is the best. The developer is very responsive to questions and technical assistance. Prior comments indicated problems with the app, but neither of us has experienced any technical issue. Both of us highly recommend this app to any NYC travelers!
What’s up?
by Rufus622 on 2018/05/20 22:41
I wonder what this app would be like if it would actually open.
Junk
by 4K65 on 2016/12/03 14:50
Don't waste your time. Slow to load and requires me,berahip before it reveals anything.
Awesome
by Alextgegreat7852 on 2016/08/20 04:55
Great app. Great format , easy to navigate, useful info that is accurate
Waste of money
by Yewune on 2016/05/18 23:30
I purchased the application but it doesn't open at all. If there was zero rating it will be yours.
Best Advice for NYC for $5
by Hilsongs on 2016/03/24 13:50
Truly exceptional advice and tour information for a first- time or return visit to NYC. Jeffrey's tips and etiquette notes are spot on and his recommendations for place visits were all highlights of our trip. Very much worth the $5!
Beware
by Chienes on 2016/03/15 22:04
So far plagued with problems
Was great, now not so much
by Banaoire on 2016/02/15 16:51
I got this app in 2013 and used it extensively when my daughter and I were in NYC for a week, and again in 2014. Since then, I haven't returned to NYC, and I haven't touched it. Now, I'm planning a return trip, and started it up again. It either doesn't like my iPad 2 or it's full of bugs, because it sure doesn't look or work the same as it used to. Very sad. The info in this app is some of the best, and most useful. But if I can't get pages to load, what good is it?
Great app... even for the Native New Yorker
by RobertJ999 on 2016/01/10 02:06
I purchased this app years ago and it's still my "go to" when visiting NYC, which is often. Great info on where to go, what to see and what to do... and the content is up to date. When I had an issue that the app would not open for me, Jeffery had the problem resolved in no time. So customer service gets an A+ as well. This app is a must for anyone who wants to get the most out of their NYC visit.
Disappointed NYC trip
by Disappointed NYC trip on 2015/12/20 13:55
Purchased this app years ago. At the time, I paid a premium price compared to other apps that offered the exact same features. On a recent trip to NYC went to use the app and was VERY UPSET that it required additional fees for the EXACT SAME features I already paid for originally had access to!! Very disappointed - this is not right!!!
Great App! Great service!
by cibelebuda on 2015/11/08 21:58
Got this app to plan our first family trip to NYC. Great tips and easy to use and navigate. Best thing about it is the fantastic customer service - Jeffrey is quick to answer any questions you might have - like having a very knowledgeable friend in NYC! Definitely recommend!
Family
by Mary Texas on 2014/12/19 17:40
This might be a great app for pre-planning a trip via non-mobile device, but while in NYC (when you really need it) using this on an iPhone didn't open up... Crashes on ever attempt. Truly a waste of $5!
Nope, crashes
by dstacy on 2014/11/23 15:01
Crashes right away when it tries to open on an iPhone 5
Invaluable!
by erikocc on 2014/11/12 00:19
This app was fantastic in prepping for our trip, getting to know all kinds of little details and secrets about NYC. We also used it throughout the trip, looking at the map to see if he had any notes about where we were at. Thanks for all the effort put into it! Wish there was this kind of easy sensical guide for every city without all the fluff!!
Only NYC app you will need!
by Mil. Mom on 2014/11/04 19:07
So glad I bought this app! It made planning our 25th anniversary trip to NYC so much easier! Well worth the money.. Buy the app, you won't regret it.
Crashes!
by Tom in DE on 2014/09/08 03:19
I just paid for this and it crashes immediately. If goes to a welcome screen then immediately shuts off. I tried deleting it and reloading, shut off phone and nothing works!!! NOT happy!!
great app!
by Hicproid on 2014/07/11 15:08
This app was great for planning our trip. Our friends and family in NYC agreed with everything the apps author said and reviewed. I also liked that people can comment in-app and get responses from the author. Great job on this very thorough app. Thanks! Michael H.
Awesome App! All you need
by Nutaskeet on 2014/07/10 20:45
Love this app! Has EVERYTHING! The only thing I would add is the ability to bookmark certain places and things that I just learned about rather than having to browse through all to find it again if I even remember it. Ability to bookmark would have put it over the top! But still the most comprehensive and worth the money!
Awesome App
by Swister3 on 2014/06/03 01:51
I am so happy I paid for and downloaded this app! It was worth every penny. It was very detailed and informative. I was able to plan out our entire trip to NYC with this app. We loved all the must do's and also the restaurant/eating suggestions. Great tips on planes/trains/cabs too. Excellent app and very well done. It was like having a friend give us tips on everything for our visit to the city. Highly recommend.
Best App
by cyoungblood on 2014/05/26 12:47
This app was very detailed and helpful. Made touring NYC easy and fun. We would have wasted time without using this app. Also made planning our trip EASY! Enjoyed NYC! Thanks

The Best $5 I've ever spent
by Sarah Richter on 2014/01/16 08:18
I can't imagine my trip to New York without this app! I started using it months before my trip to plan what I wanted to do. The author lists and describes dozens upon dozens of New York landmarks, both major and minor, restaurants, areas, and activities. You can favorite the ones you are interested in, and you can view them on a map. This was so helpful in planning our itinerary. My Facebook friends were astonished at how much I was able see and do in 3 days (and during Hercules, the blizzard!) and I credit this app with helping us see and learn so much. Well worth the $5!
Well Worth Paying For
by TulareGuy559 on 2013/11/23 13:34
I rarely write reviews, but this app is too good not to acknowledge it. I would give it 4.5 stars, in reality. The author does a fabulous job of describing locations - his own words and reviews, not from a Wiki or other source (at least to my knowledge). I'd had a number of other NYC apps, each with limited coverage, hard to navigate interface, etc; I wish I'd just bought this from the beginning, as it made researching what we wanted to do in NY a breeze. I particularly like how I can save locations to my favorites and then see my favorites on the map; with a place as vast as NYC, strategically hitting places you want to see by neighborhood is an absolute must, so this app has become my only "go to" for exploring (with a little Yelp and Google Maps of course). The recent update seems to have solved some minor stability issues (it could crash occasionally) and the offline content downloads. Extremely minor interface glitches sometimes come up, but are not at all a detraction. My only wish list for this (and why I knocked it down a half star) is that I'd love to save my favorites to multiple devices. I do my research on my iPad, but then am exploring the city on my iPhone; I wish I could synchronize across my devices so I don't have to save a favorite twice. Otherwise, this is well worth the $5, particularly because you can ask the author questions - its like having a tour guide on standby!
Really buggy
by Kitjsh on 2013/11/21 16:45
Clunky, buggy app that is very awkward to use. Deleted it.
Fabulous app to navigate NYC for newbees and oldies
by Karlarxcy on 2013/09/01 10:33
Haven't been back to NY in many years. Wanted to visit some old haunts and new sites. This app helped me lay out my week, choose sites wisely and efficiently navigate the city. Found out about this app at Chelsea Market and downloaded it on recommendation card at Fat Witch, Chelsea Market. Almost hesitated when I saw the purchase price but well worth the investment. Thanks for this honest evaluation of city sites. Well done!
A Must!!
by zachb1974 on 2013/08/27 21:32
This was my NYC go to app! Everything you need is here. I spent three weeks in the city and I would refer to this app multiple times a day. This app includes popular destinations as well as other spots around the city that may not have been on your itinerary. Certain reputable restaurants and shops are also profiled. Also included are directions to each place. Extremely user friendly and highly recommended - though I had downloaded other NYC apps, I always went back to this one!
Very helpful
by Jdbqrte on 2013/08/20 19:35
I love this app! I haven't been on my trip yet but I come to this app everytime I'm trying to plan. It has so much information. It's honest and factual. Not only that the author personally answers any questions you may have. I was hesitant to purchase it because of the price but I am Very glad I did!!
Terrible app
by Rawlsio on 2013/08/15 12:48
Don't buy this thing!! Terrible design (confusing interface, illogical organization) and extraordinarily poor execution, featuring juvenile commentary on places and things and the SLOWEST scrolling I have ever experienced in an iPhone app. Using the maps to try understand what is where is a genuinely painful experience.
Terrible!
by Urafrutlup on 2013/08/04 13:13
This app won't stay open and working for more than 45 seconds! What a waste of money! What's the point of purchasing a product that lasts less than a minute? I'd have been happier donating my $5 to a bum on the street!
Great app!
by Kev1960 on 2013/08/03 02:54
Has me more excited about our trip! Part 2..,(after the trip) this app is a must-have for tourists like me & would probably be useful to even the most native-New Yorker!
Great App
by Optics2000 on 2013/07/10 17:15
Information is very accurate. Loads great everytime
Good info..but freezes often
by RikyRik on 2013/07/07 22:35
This app has an awful lot of great, useful info. When it works. It currently freezes every 2 minutes.
Fantastic app
by Ki-phone on 2013/06/30 07:03
Extremely useful with tops and sprinkles of humor included. It's like having a personal tour guide with you. Well worth the asking price.
Great!
by The Lost Traveler on 2013/06/23 14:39
I have never been to New York, and this app gave me some great places to go that I would have never known about. Great advise, tips, and the distance from your location and how to get there feature was a plus. It did shut down a couple times, but I had no problems bringing it back up and getting from it what I needed. A must for the New York traveler
Wow! This app has depth
by thisguyalton on 2013/06/03 23:10
This is a must have, go to app for visiting NYC. Well written content that is generous with links when appropriate . This is among the best apps I have overall - five stars for sure.
Best NY Tourist App!
by Sammie_Rae on 2013/05/19 19:46
We are planning a trip to NY soon and I'm so glad I purchased this APP! It will be very helpful. Love the messages and quick responses! Just wish you had Carlos Bakery listed as a location. :). Thanks for creating such a great APP!
Pesters you to rate it
by Hatetrippit on 2013/05/03 23:35
This ap has a pop up that pesters you to rate it every time you open it. Very annoying. So here's the rating. Can you stop now?
Excellent resource for getting around NYC
by Pmcgill2970 on 2013/04/07 12:23
This app is a "must have" for New York. References exist for virtually everything - sightseeing, dining, museums, etc. A nice feature is the ability to go directly to a map and directions on how to get somewhere. The only downgrade I have is not for content, but the fact that the app badgers you for a rating every time you open it, until you give it one. I don't think it is fair to give a rating until you have a chance to use it. Otherwise, it works well, and has excellent content!
Excelente !!
by MaxPower35 on 2013/04/03 02:55
Imprescindible a la hora de conocer NY
Very helpful app
by Messiet on 2013/03/24 12:23
This is my to go app when visiting the city.
A ton of information at Your finger tips
by Markthespot246 on 2013/03/21 23:50
The response time and feedback was 100%. You feel as if you have a travel companion available if needed for suggestions. Got to tweak some areas but for the most part a real treat, This app is a great tool for the ins and outs of this great city.
Excellent, timely information
by sangiovese9 on 2013/03/21 17:51
This app has surpassed others that I've used in planning my fourth vacation to the city. It has both breadth and depth of information, yet maintains a concise and easily navigable interface.
NY navigator
by beastmodein on 2013/03/19 11:57
Great app for NY city visit. Very easy to navigate app! Many links and great tips that take you right to online ticket purchases for NY landmarks.
Great NYC trip planning and information on everything about the city
by Deppfan1655 on 2013/03/12 03:14
This app really helped me plan and enjoy my trip to NYC. I've been to the city multiple times, but having an instant on-the-go reference guide made me feel more comfortable walking around the city without needing a local New Yorker to lead the way. A must have if you're visiting the city for the first time or the fifteenth. It even provides information on how to navigate the city's massive and very confusing mass transit system. Great app!
Keeps crashing
by Hogan mom5 on 2013/03/06 01:54
The first 15 minutes I had this app it crashed more than 10x!! Worst app I ever paid money for!! Info is great and very helpful for a New York newbie if I could only keep the app open.
Native New Yorker

Looks Promising
by Han5Frit2 on 2013/01/18 19:34
At this point I'm only making plans to visit NYC, have not had the opportunity to use it "on site." This App allows the user to save attractions of their own interest, and then view those interests on a map, so that plans can be made. I will update my review (and probably give this App all five stars) after my visit.
Great app for NYC visitors
by Creek28 on 2013/01/02 16:17
Does a good job with the outer boroughs as well as Manhattan!!
GREAT APP!
by lcndga on 2012/12/19 04:25
I love that the guide has links to everything within it. So nice to not have to toggle back and forth between sites. Very thorough. Thank you.
Wonderful Resource!
by Dallas Mama of 3 on 2012/12/03 01:18
Have completed two trips to NYC using this APP. The info is precise and very useful. Made traveling to the Big Apple a breeze and took a lot of stress out of planning the trip. HIGHLY recommend this tool!
Fantastic app
by Harmbo on 2012/11/16 14:02
Any piece of information one is looking for this app has. Very helpful, worth the money.
Worth the buy
by The voice of reasoning on 2012/11/02 10:53
This guide has by far exceeded my expectations and is second to none in my opinion.
Totally worth every penny.
by CHAOSBURGER on 2012/09/20 12:11
Saved our trip. We love this app.
Awesome!
by Sandjjy on 2012/09/18 23:06
This app was so useful on our trip to New York! I used it the entire time we were there. I don't know how we would have gotten around without it! It points out fun things to do and helps you plan the trip efficiently so you get to see everything you planned along with some extra places I wouldn't have thought off. We checked off every single thing on our to do list! The map and directions were also really useful in helping us find our way around. It's definitely a must if you're going to New York! The only thing that it needs work on is that it does tend to crash at times.
The Best
by rws262 on 2012/09/07 07:24
Absolutely amazing app!! Just perfect for a first time vacation in New York City.

I have The New York City Essentials Guide iPhone App for My Apple iPhone 4 32GB & I love the App, I live in New York in The Bronx & I read the App all the time when I go to Manhattan New York City & also when I'm at Home & you get 5 Stars from me & The Service I use for My Apple iPhone 4 32GB is Verizon Wireless stay cool from Your Fan & Costumer Byron. :)
Definitely worth the money!
by New York Visitor on 2012/08/21 00:29
Very helpful guide! We also bought the standard tour books, but we referred to this almost exclusively. The advice seemed much more practical than the typical guidebook (you get the real "insider's view"). It's arranged alphabetically by key topics, which is helpful when your looking items up in real time. It maps out each site and even estimates cab fare (it's not exact of course but gives a good ballpark estimate). Also identifies nearby subway stops to help you plan your next steps. You can even leave questions for the author, who responds back quickly. All this is topped off by a good sense of humor.

Thanks for such a useful app! It has helped direct walking tours nd to decipher the subways. Worth twice the cost,
Wish I'd started using it earlier
by Wood-eye on 2012/07/26 12:06
Especially helpful for walking and using public transport. Nice link up with maps!
Just great!

This made our week in NYC go by without a hitch.. Highly recommended....
Great App!!!
by HCQ22 on 2012/07/25 18:40
I considered not getting this app because I figured the free ones would get me the same info... I'm so glad I ended up getting it! We used it for our 1st trip to NYC and it was extremely helpful! I loved the ability to look up things by their proximity to where we were! Also, the hints which subway/bus lines to take were lifesavers an made getting between attractions so easy! I will be recommending this to any friend who visits NYC!!
Hooray for NYC
by Twins4Sue on 2012/07/16 01:24
Planning my first trip to NYC in December! Having fun exploring the adventures, restaurants, places of interest. Thank you!
Best guide to NYC
by D in CT on 2012/07/09 22:27
I've used lots of guidebooks over the years, but this app is by the far the best and most convenient. I've seen more cool stuff in NYC over last 3 days using this app than I have in over 20 years of living within commuting distance of the city. Lots of great insider tips and convenient links to websites for schedules and tickets. Easy to navigate with lots of suggestions to maximize your sightseeing experience - both for first-timers, and seasoned New Yorkers.
Made my trip a breeze!
by YME1963 on 2012/07/07 04:14
Great app for on-the-go travel. I used the distance sorter and it was great!!
Impressive app.
by ByteAssassin on 2012/07/04 16:32
I went on a trip to New York with my daughter, and this app pointed out a lot of things that you do for free and things that you could see that were at little cost. I thought the layout and content was so useful I bout the Las Vegas app too. I have been thrilled with the suggestions. I also love the author's choices for the top things to do, and I hunted down dozens of the best pizza places and I agree Pizza Suprema is the best there in Manhattan. try the authors lists for cool item to do in the app.
Crashes often
by Pamrx on 2012/06/20 02:37
Not helpful if I can't use it. Disappointing.
A must!
by Annfhg on 2012/06/10 23:19
I've been to NYC many times and this app has finally allowed me to leave the big guide book at home. With all The info on my phone I was able to explore to my heart's content. Well Done!!
Wonderful app
by Brianmidd on 2012/06/10 20:54
I have never bothered to review an app before, but I wanted to express my appreciation for this wonderfully designed app. I was traveling to NYC with my wife in May 2012 and was concerned because I had never been there before. This app was like my own personal tour guide, helping navigate the urban jungle. My favorite part is that you can submit the author your own questions, which he will answer in the app or by email. Well done! My only gripe is that the app crashed a few times on my iPhone 4. No problems though on my iPad 2.
Highly Recommended
by 2New2NYC on 2012/05/28 03:25
My daughter and I are visiting NYC next month. I'm so glad to have found this app. It is full of robust, current content with web links, maps, money-saving advice, hot picks, do's and dont's, and more. GPS will come in handy on walking tours. Lots of photos, transportation advice, etc., etc. This app is very intuitive and simple to use with search feature, browse attractions by area of town, and reviews. This is better than any paper guide. Time and money-saving tips makes this app worth every penny.
Best NYC App of All!!!
by mikelr610 on 2012/05/20 15:41
I'm from TX and visit NYC pretty regularly. This is absolutely the best NYC app of the many I've downloaded with great information and helps in finding the best locations to go to. Even better is the personal resonse available in the comments section. If you viusit NYC and don't use this exensively, you're missing out.
Great app, one of the best I've downloaded
by Traveler6898 on 2012/05/11 00:47
It's my first time trying out a guidebook app and I loved this one. I lived in NYC and have family in the area (not in the city though) and this is by far the best guidebook I have used. I'm usually partial to the lonely planet but this beats it hands down. I used it on my iPad and it's much better than using a book. I didn't even have 3G and I still found it useful. Not too much text, subway connections to every destination -- just the essentials for a quick trip (I did a one day trip with this book). Though, this leads me to my only gripe. It's not obvious, but you really might want to have 3G while using it. I wasn't able to find very much free wifi in the city. Quite a few links are links to websites. Also, a lot of pictures (any pictures?) aren't fully downloaded as part of the package install.
A great help!
by Chicagorex on 2012/05/09 13:29
My wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary by spending 3 nights in Times Square at the Doubletree Hilton. This application combined with web research really helped narrow down the options. We ended our evenings at the R Lounge in Times Square as the guide suggests. We would have never known that the R Lounge was in The Renaissance hotel across the street without this app. Other highlights were The Halal guys street cart, Soup Man, Flat Iron district. The ability to have favorites with all the addresses, info, phone numbers available proved to be invaluable. Thankfully, I had this app about 1 week before we went. I had time to research. Think of it this way, if you spend 4 to 5 dollars on this app and it saves you a wasted cab ride, you've already paid for the app with 1/2 of a cab fare! We visited the 911 memorial, got on Letterman, Empire State Building tour, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Central Park - We love NY! The application allows you to comment and give observations to help fellow travelers. Jeffrey is very responsive. I am not suggesting this is the only resource your need for planning a trip to NYC - do your homework. We knew exactly what restaurants we were going to as we are foodies, but the app helped us know what things to see along the way and helped us plan our itinerary accordingly! This app is a no brainer.

Great ap everything was just as you said it would be. I would recommend it for any NY visitor!
Apple of my eye!
by Fire@Will on 2012/04/12 17:28
I just spent a week in NYC with my wife and two kids (ages 6&8) and used this app almost exclusively. It is an invaluable resource in the city and worth every penny. The app is much easier to use while on the streets than a guide book. It is intuitive and has a great interface. I particularly liked the interactive map feature that allows you to see attractions near your current location. We found several "hidden gems" that we would have otherwise missed. Great job, and highly recommended!!
Keeps Crashing (iPad and iPhone)
by Fmario20 on 2012/04/06 13:29
The App looks great but I can't go 3 min without crashing. I tried it in my 3rd gen iPad and 4s with same results!! If this doesn't change then it is a great useless App!
Loved it!!!
by kristiv2 on 2012/03/30 16:07
This app acted as our tour guide around Manhattan. It was so helpful to be able to check the map feature to see what was nearby. The extra info listed helped us to feel like we knew a bit about various places even down to discovering that the best rated public restroom was nearby when we were at Bryant Park. This app is like having a local in my pocket!!
Must Have Before You Go!
by Leah114 on 2012/03/19 22:43
I am leaving for NYC in a week and was feeling a bit overwhelmed trying to figure out what I wanted to see, and where it was located, and how I was going to get there. Just bought this app last night and my apprehension is gone! It is absolutely wonderful....so easy to navigate and the descriptions are very thorough. Looking at your pictures has given me some great ideas for my own picture-taking! Every time I thought I had a question I was able to navigate somewhere and find the answer. You did a great job and I highly recommend this to anyone going to NYC. My only other recommendation is that you buy this app early enough so that you have time to really look at it. This is totally worth the price and then some! Thanks! NYC here I come!
Awesome!
by Ltgreat on 2012/02/22 15:42
Well worth the money. Makes the city easy for those who have never been.
Wow
by Christian196 on 2012/01/29 04:38
I never review apps but I was so impressed with this one I felt it was a disservice not to. I just spent the whole day in the city (probably about my 15th time here) and this app simplified everything immensely. Need a place to eat? This'll do it. Need an idea for what to do? This app will do that too. Shopping, transportation, food, entertainment and even under the radar places most apps miss are all found Here. My favorite part is that it practically acts as a gps. It shows where you need to go on the map and updates as you walk so you're always sure you're on the right track. Of you get one app, make it this one. So worth it.
Worth the money...
by Bobby_D on 2011/12/29 04:48
I used this application extensively on my first trip to NYC. I too purchased other applications but I inevitably fell back on this one. I found that all the information was complete, reliable, and very current. Price? $4.99 initially seemed steep, but I now consider it a "drop in the bucket" after a day in the city!
Awesome app!!!
by Jeannie Hopkins on 2011/12/21 16:14
This is by far the best app for anyone traveling to NYC...I bought four apps the same day to research NYC and plan out my up coming trip...This app has everything u could need.Awesome now can't wait for my trip with my family on Christmas...
Not impressed
by Dageper on 2011/12/19 00:00
It is ok but need a searh feature
Fantastic
by Jay Al on 2011/12/09 12:30
I spent the last four days on vacation in NYC with my family...This app saved my life. You can easily navigate the city with the map feature and it allows you to see the places that you don't want to miss (that might be right around the corner)...Highly recommend this app for people visiting NYC and a little scared to go it alone....This app is like having your own tour guide...
OUTSTANDING!
by roadrunn3r on 2011/11/27 12:30
Super informative app for the tourist in NYC. Used this app to plan out our trip everyday as we went to the sites we had wanted to see. First time traveler to NYC and it was a great tool.
Great app but crashes & drains battery
by martinsuchy on 2011/11/22 19:19
I just spent 18 days in NYC and used this app every day. The app itself works great. Besides the list feature which i used all the time, I especially like the map & filter feature that tells you attractions/sites around you and shows you pictures so you know what you're looking for. The comments/descriptions and links to nearby sites are very helpful and accurate and sometimes very funny. Content-wise & functionality I give this app 5+ stars. It's really good. However, the app crashes ALL the time. Sometimes during frequent use it crashes once a minute!!! It reboots itself quickly but you have to navigate where you left off. It's annoying but workable. Additionally, it drains the battery very fast even if not in active use. If it just sits in the background my battery was completely depleted in about 6 to 8 hrs without any use of the phone! You have to shut the app down by deleting it from the cache if you are not using it in order to preserve your battery. Again, it's annoying but you can do the cache cleanup to save your battery. Finally, the update released yesterday (November 21) did not install and prevented all other updates from installing (my phone had 9 updates to install yesterday). Today I removed this NYC app and the other 8 apps updated successfully. I did not reinstall this NYC app today so I cannot tell you whether the latest update fixed the crashing and battery problems. Due to frequent crashes/reboots and excessive battery usage while running the app in the background I give this app 0 stars so on average the app gets 2.5 stars from me (5 stars for content and functionality each, and 0 stars for stability and battery usage). I would advice the content author to find new iPhone programmers and develop a whole new app. My phone is iPhone 3GS with iOS 5.0.1
Extremely disappointed
by 12 String Rebel on 2011/11/11 15:39
Maybe NYC is just too big for a little app, but I found this one worthless.
Pretty good - nice map!
by Astro Turf on 2011/10/24 04:36
I like the feature to locate yourself on the map and just see what's around you. Plenty of photos, but only short descriptions of each place. I think they need to be about twice as long. It is also crashing A LOT. Pretty much all the time. I guess it has to do with iOS5 since no one else complained yet and the other reviews are older. Otherwise it's fun to use!
Love this app
by CaliforniaExpert on 2011/09/08 01:41
New York City is fast-paced and fabulous, and this app brings the city to life in vivid detail. The author's writing is witty and fun, and he clearly has a loyal fan base. Unlike paperback guidebooks, this app is interactive. So if you have a question about an entry, it's usually answered the same day! How cool is that?
Not worth 5 bucks
by Joe Wen on 2011/08/27 18:41
In my opinion
Are You Ready?
by JBnRB on 2011/08/21 22:37
Live in CT. Been to the city a million times… Bought this app for a NY visit with my Girl from DE… Honest to goodness, if you go to NY…get this app whatever you think your experience with the city is.……
Outstanding!
by bawebb on 2011/07/17 18:13
Just got back from NY with 14y old son. 1st time ever to Big Apple. Had this app, the NYC pass app and the subway app. Everything worked flawlessly. I highly recommend them all.
Solid travel guide to New York City
by Trumeister on 2011/07/10 14:29
This app is full of useful info. There are numerous ways of slicing and dicing the info but my favorite is the map that shows where every attraction is. You can drill down on each and see details on each as well as checking out the photos. It isn't a hotel or food guide but it doesn't claim to be. My only feedback is I'd like to see a few more of the lesser known sights as well. But it covers the major sights well.

Best money I ever spent!
by stackman67 on 2011/06/18 12:36
The app is awesome, and was invaluable for our NYC trip. Even better than the app is the author and his support of the app. He will help you with any questions you have about NYC, he definitely goes the extra mile. Buying this app was the best money I ever spent.

Very Nice App...I actually used it the whole week while in NY...very helpful...can't go wrong...GET IT !!!
Awesome and essential app!
by D J C K on 2011/04/28 02:03
This and KickMap are mandatory for any newbie headed to NYC. You will def get your money out of it and discover things you wouldn't have on your own! Great job! C
Excellent resource for getting around NYC
by Pmcgill2970 on 2013/04/07 12:23
This app is a "must have" for New York. References exist for virtually everything - sightseeing, dining, museums, etc. A nice feature is the ability to go directly to a map and directions on how to get somewhere. The only downgrade I have is not for content, but the fact that the app badgers you for a rating every time you open it, until you give it one. I don't think it is fair to give a rating until you have a chance to use it. Otherwise, it works well, and has excellent content!
Excellent App!
by Najola51 on 2019/04/01 07:11
I got this app a year ago, when I was going with my husband to NYC. We’d been before, and wanted to see and experience sites, food, etc. that we hadn’t seen before. This app provided lots of information on choices, locations, costs, and more. I’ve acquired several NYC apps, but this one is the best. The developer is very responsive to questions and technical assistance. Prior comments indicated problems with the app, but neither of us has experienced any technical issue. Both of us highly recommend this app to any NYC travelers!
What’s up?
by Rufus622 on 2018/05/20 22:41
I wonder what this app would be like if it would actually open.
Well Worth Paying For
by TulareGuy559 on 2013/11/23 13:34
I rarely write reviews, but this app is too good not to acknowledge it. I would give it 4.5 stars, in reality. The author does a fabulous job of describing locations - his own words and reviews, not from a Wiki or other source (at least to my knowledge). I'd had a number of other NYC apps, each with limited coverage, hard to navigate interface, etc; I wish I'd just bought this from the beginning, as it made researching what we wanted to do in NY a breeze. I particularly like how I can save locations to my favorites and then see my favorites on the map; with a place as vast as NYC, strategically hitting places you want to see by neighborhood is an absolute must, so this app has become my only "go to" for exploring (with a little Yelp and Google Maps of course). The recent update seems to have solved some minor stability issues (it could crash occasionally) and the offline content downloads. Extremely minor interface glitches sometimes come up, but are not at all a detraction. My only wish list for this (and why I knocked it down a half star) is that I'd love to save my favorites to multiple devices. I do my research on my iPad, but then am exploring the city on my iPhone; I wish I could synchronize across my devices so I don't have to save a favorite twice. Otherwise, this is well worth the $5, particularly because you can ask the author questions - its like having a tour guide on standby!
A great help!
by Chicagorex on 2012/05/09 13:29
My wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary by spending 3 nights in Times Square at the Doubletree Hilton. This application combined with web research really helped narrow down the options. We ended our evenings at the R Lounge in Times Square as the guide suggests. We would have never known that the R Lounge was in The Renaissance hotel across the street without this app. Other highlights were The Halal guys street cart, Soup Man, Flat Iron district. The ability to have favorites with all the addresses, info, phone numbers available proved to be invaluable. Thankfully, I had this app about 1 week before we went. I had time to research.

The application allows you to comment and give observations to help fellow travelers. Jeffrey is very responsive.

We knew exactly what restaurants we were going to as we are foodies, but the app helped us know what things to see along the way and helped us plan our itinerary accordingly! This app is a no brainer.

Great app, one of the best I've downloaded
by Traveler6898 on 2012/05/11 00:47
It's my first time trying out a guidebook app and I loved this one. I lived in NYC and have family in the area (not in the city though) and this is by far the best guidebook I have used. I'm usually partial to the lonely planet but this beats it hands down. I used it on my iPad and it's much better than using a book. I didn't even have 3G and I still found it useful. Not too much text, subway connections to every destination -- just the essentials for a quick trip (I did a one day trip with this book). Though, this leads me to my only gripe. It's not obvious, but you really might want to have 3G while using it. I wasn't able to find very much free wifi in the city. Quite a few links are links to websites. Also, a lot of pictures (any pictures?) aren't fully downloaded as part of the package install.
Definitely worth the money!
by New York Visitor on 2012/08/21 00:29
Very helpful guide! We also bought the standard tour books, but we referred to this almost exclusively. The advice seemed much more practical than the typical guidebook (you get the real "insider's view"). It's arranged alphabetically by key topics, which is helpful when your looking items up in real time. It maps out each site and even estimates cab fare (it's not exact of course but gives a good ballpark estimate). Also identifies nearby subway stops to help you plan your next steps. You can even leave questions for the author, who responds back quickly. All this is topped off by a good sense of humor.
Wow

by Sandjjy on 2012/09/18 23:06
This app was so useful on our trip to New York! I used it the entire time we were there. I don't know how we would have gotten around without it! It points out fun things to do and helps you plan the trip efficiently so you get to see everything you planned along with some extra places I wouldn't have thought off. We checked off every single thing on our to do list! The map and directions were also really useful in helping us find our way around. It's definitely a must if you're going to New York! The only thing that it needs work on is that it does tend to crash at times.
The Best $5 I've ever spent
by Sarah Richter on 2014/01/16 08:18
I can't imagine my trip to New York without this app! I started using it months before my trip to plan what I wanted to do. The author lists and describes dozens upon dozens of New York landmarks, both major and minor, restaurants, areas, and activities. You can favorite the ones you are interested in, and you can view them on a map. This was so helpful in planning our itinerary. My Facebook friends were astonished at how much I was able see and do in 3 days (and during Hercules, the blizzard!) and I credit this app with helping us see and learn so much. Well worth the $5!
Apple of my eye!

Highly Recommended
by 2New2NYC on 2012/05/28 03:25
My daughter and I are visiting NYC next month. I'm so glad to have found this app. It is full of robust, current content with web links, maps, money-saving advice, hot picks, do's and dont's, and more. GPS will come in handy on walking tours. Lots of photos, transportation advice, etc., etc. This app is very intuitive and simple to use with search feature, browse attractions by area of town, and reviews. This is better than any paper guide. Time and money-saving tips makes this app worth every penny.
A Must!!
by zachb1974 on 2013/08/27 21:32
This was my NYC go to app! Everything you need is here. I spent three weeks in the city and I would refer to this app multiple times a day. This app includes popular destinations as well as other spots around the city that may not have been on your itinerary. Certain reputable restaurants and shops are also profiled. Also included are directions to each place. Extremely user friendly and highly recommended - though I had downloaded other NYC apps, I always went back to this one!
Great NYC trip planning and information on everything about the city
by Deppfan1655 on 2013/03/12 03:14
This app really helped me plan and enjoy my trip to NYC. I've been to the city multiple times, but having an instant on-the-go reference guide made me feel more comfortable walking around the city without needing a local New Yorker to lead the way. A must have if you're visiting the city for the first time or the fifteenth. It even provides information on how to navigate the city's massive and very confusing mass transit system. Great app!
Wonderful app
by Brianmidd on 2012/06/10 20:54
I have never bothered to review an app before, but I wanted to express my appreciation for this wonderfully designed app. I was traveling to NYC with my wife in May 2012 and was concerned because I had never been there before. This app was like my own personal tour guide, helping navigate the urban jungle. My favorite part is that you can submit the author your own questions, which he will answer in the app or by email. Well done! My only gripe is that the app crashed a few times on my iPhone 4. No problems though on my iPad 2.

by ByteAssassin on 2012/07/04 16:32
I went on a trip to New York with my daughter, and this app pointed out a lot of things that you do for free and things that you could see that were at little cost. I thought the layout and content was so useful I bout the Las Vegas app too. I have been thrilled with the suggestions. I also love the author's choices for the top things to do, and I hunted down dozens of the best pizza places and I agree Pizza Suprema is the best there in Manhattan. try the authors lists for cool item to do in the app.
Great app... even for the Native New Yorker
by RobertJ999 on 2016/01/10 02:06
I purchased this app years ago and it's still my "go to" when visiting NYC, which is often. Great info on where to go, what to see and what to do... and the content is up to date. When I had an issue that the app would not open for me, Jeffery had the problem resolved in no time. So customer service gets an A+ as well. This app is a must for anyone who wants to get the most out of their NYC visit.
Great App!!!
by HCQ22 on 2012/07/25 18:40
I considered not getting this app because I figured the free ones would get me the same info... I'm so glad I ended up getting it! We used it for our 1st trip to NYC and it was extremely helpful! I loved the ability to look up things by their proximity to where we were! Also, the hints which subway/bus lines to take were lifesavers an made getting between attractions so easy! I will be recommending this to any friend who visits NYC!!
Best guide to NYC
by D in CT on 2012/07/09 22:27
I've used lots of guidebooks over the years, but this app is by the far the best and most convenient. I've seen more cool stuff in NYC over last 3 days using this app than I have in over 20 years of living within commuting distance of the city. Lots of great insider tips and convenient links to websites for schedules and tickets. Easy to navigate with lots of suggestions to maximize your sightseeing experience - both for first-timers, and seasoned New Yorkers.
THE best NYC app out there, period.
by TravelMagic on 2010/10/08 03:04
As an ex-New Yorker, I wanted an app for reference when I come back to visit with friends and family. This app is superb with tight writing, great helpful tips and all the practical info you need to have an awesome trip. In fact it's honestly one of the best travel apps I've ever bought. The author is a real travel expert who updates the info frequently. What more could you ask for? Buy it. New update runs flawlessly!
GREAT NYC trip app!!
by Izooks on 2010/08/11 11:31
I'm in NY right now and this app is great and works flawless! My wife before we left made a big map of NY and plotted all the places we wanted to go, this app does that plus gives you directions from where you are along with the information of your destination! If your planning a trip to NY and need info of what to do or places to see this is a must get app. Thanks to the developer for putting together an inexpensive tour guide app.
Fabulous app to navigate NYC for newbees and oldies
by Karlarxcy on 2013/09/01 10:33
Haven't been back to NY in many years. Wanted to visit some old haunts and new sites. This app helped me lay out my week, choose sites wisely and efficiently navigate the city. Found out about this app at Chelsea Market and downloaded it on recommendation card at Fat Witch, Chelsea Market. Almost hesitated when I saw the purchase price but well worth the investment. Thanks for this honest evaluation of city sites. Well done!
Awesome App
by Swister3 on 2014/06/03 01:51
I am so happy I paid for and downloaded this app! It was worth every penny. It was very detailed and informative. I was able to plan out our entire trip to NYC with this app. We loved all the must do's and also the restaurant/eating suggestions. Great tips on planes/trains/cabs too. Excellent app and very well done. It was like having a friend give us tips on everything for our visit to the city. Highly recommend.
Fantastic
by Jay Al on 2011/12/09 12:30
I spent the last four days on vacation in NYC with my family...This app saved my life. You can easily navigate the city with the map feature and it allows you to see the places that you don't want to miss (that might be right around the corner)...Highly recommend this app for people visiting NYC and a little scared to go it alone....This app is like having your own tour guide...
Good but not comprehensive
by lliz77 on 2010/11/21 20:39
This is not a complete guidebook. It only gives you information about a limited number of shops, restaurants etc. However, the info it gives is excellent. I've lived in new york for 20 years and learned lots of new and interesting and practical suggestions from this app. But if five dollars is a lot to you, buy a frommers guide book or go to a tourism website for more complete info.
Invaluable!
by erikocc on 2014/11/12 00:19
This app was fantastic in prepping for our trip, getting to know all kinds of little details and secrets about NYC. We also used it throughout the trip, looking at the map to see if he had any notes about where we were at. Thanks for all the effort put into it! Wish there was this kind of easy sensical guide for every city without all the fluff!!
Loved it!!!
by kristiv2 on 2012/03/30 16:07
This app acted as our tour guide around Manhattan. It was so helpful to be able to check the map feature to see what was nearby. The extra info listed helped us to feel like we knew a bit about various places even down to discovering that the best rated public restroom was nearby when we were at Bryant Park. This app is like having a local in my pocket!!
Great!
by The Lost Traveler on 2013/06/23 14:39
I have never been to New York, and this app gave me some great places to go that I would have never known about. Great advise, tips, and the distance from your location and how to get there feature was a plus. It did shut down a couple times, but I had no problems bringing it back up and getting from it what I needed. A must for the New York traveler
Great app!
by Flaminia Chapman- Rome Insider on 2011/04/21 08:57
There is so much info packed into this app- the 5$ price tag is a bargain. I especially love the Trip planning section, with helpful tips on tours, airports, free wifi locations, events, etc. The map feature is handy and will help you get around the city in a flash. Even though I lived in NY for a year after college, this app will help me find new places- can't wait to go next week!
Pretty good - nice map!
by Astro Turf on 2011/10/24 04:36
I like the feature to locate yourself on the map and just see what's around you. Plenty of photos, but only short descriptions of each place. I think they need to be about twice as long. It is also crashing A LOT. Pretty much all the time. I guess it has to do with iOS5 since no one else complained yet and the other reviews are older. Otherwise it's fun to use!
Live like a local
by FunkyDogMom on 2010/06/03 14:55
I've lived in NYC for 8 months and this app has been awesome. It helped me discover new hole-in-the-wall restaurants like Miss Mamie's Spoonbread Too and rediscover old faithfuls like Sylvia's (totally right about Mamie's mac-n-cheese!). Print guides are so often out of date - this one just keeps getting better. And I love the map directions - especially in NYC, having a pocket navigator is dreamy!
NYC State of Mind
by Superlos on 2010/08/23 04:02
I downloaded this app a week before I went to NYC on vacation and it was my guide every step of the way. Just enough info about all the major tourist spots and some not so touristy spots. Nice slideshows for every destination included and the maps feature never let me get lost! If you've never been to NYC and are looking for a nice tour guide, this is the one!
Awesome App! All you need
by Nutaskeet on 2014/07/10 20:45
Love this app! Has EVERYTHING! The only thing I would add is the ability to bookmark certain places and things that I just learned about rather than having to browse through all to find it again if I even remember it. Ability to bookmark would have put it over the top! But still the most comprehensive and worth the money!

At this point I'm only making plans to visit NYC, have not had the opportunity to use it "on site." This App allows the user to save attractions of their own interest, and then view those interests on a map, so that plans can be made. I will update my review (and probably give this App all five stars) after my visit.
Was great, now not so much

I got this app in 2013 and used it extensively when my daughter and I were in NYC for a week, and again in 2014. Since then, I haven't returned to NYC, and I haven't touched it. Now, I'm planning a return trip, and started it up again. It either doesn't like my iPad 2 or it's full of bugs, because it sure doesn't look or work the same as it used to. Very sad. The info in this app is some of the best, and most useful. But if I can't get pages to load, what good is it?

I used this application extensively on my first trip to NYC. I too purchased other applications but I inevitably fell back on this one. I found that all the information was complete, reliable, and very current. Price? $4.99 initially seemed steep, but I now consider it a "drop in the bucket" after a day in the city!
Best NYC App of All!!!
by mikelr610 on 2012/05/20 15:41
I'm from TX and visit NYC pretty regularly. This is absolutely the best NYC app of the many I've downloaded with great information and helps in finding the best locations to go to. Even better is the personal resonse available in the comments section. If you viusit NYC and don't use this exensively, you're missing out.
Very helpful

I love this app! I haven't been on my trip yet but I come to this app everytime I'm trying to plan. It has so much information. It's honest and factual. Not only that the author personally answers any questions you may have. I was hesitant to purchase it because of the price but I am Very glad I did!!
Great App! Great service!

Got this app to plan our first family trip to NYC. Great tips and easy to use and navigate. Best thing about it is the fantastic customer service - Jeffrey is quick to answer any questions you might have - like having a very knowledgeable friend in NYC! Definitely recommend!
Amazing app!

This app is great and when I saw it in the store I was like mehh but then I actually got to see it and it is really a fantastic app! The pictures are really nice and the map helps a lot and the descriptions are really cool. I was thinking though, you should make one of these apps for a ton of different cities too!
Good App!!

NEVER been to NYC and this app was great when I used the distance feature and made my way through the city. The different locations that were listed to see was enough for a few days. Only problem is that the Map Application didnt work. (But I'm also using a 1st Gen iPhone).... Overall, good app to buy!
My Guide in my hand

Jeffrey did a stellar job on this app. Being an airport geek, I love the detailed information he gives on the airport. Plus it always tells me how far away I am from the airport. Love that. The app is a great companion for any trip to New York, as such, I'd recommend it. It's like having my own guide in my hand.
Quick and easy way to discover the gems of NYC

Dude just buy it
by TasMN on 2010/11/20 04:56
Spent 3 days in NYC with my 10 yr old son and used this app tons--it is great. And the guy who made it listens to comments and continues to improve info and advice. Seriously, we found some cheap eats and other cool stuff we would have missed otherwise
Love it
by Smtwn on 2013/02/01 14:45
Organized very well. Love the subway routings for each entry. Really like the fact that there are out of the way places mentioned. This will be my 4th trip to NY and I feel more confident in exploring new places because of the guidance this app gives.
Best money I ever spent!

The app is awesome, and was invaluable for our NYC trip. Even better than the app is the author and his support of the app. He will help you with any questions you have about NYC, he definitely goes the extra mile. Buying this app was the best money I ever spent.
