MONTREAL, June 21 /PRNewswire/ - mTrip Travel Guides for iPhone & iPod Touch hit the App store today with nine US and European city guides. Just like a personal tour guide, mTrip is there for you from planning your itinerary to guiding you around the entire city and describing tourist attractions, restaurants, hotels and more to you.

"Travel preparation, sightseeing and trip sharing are completely re-defined with the arrival of travel applications. With this first series of city guides, we have brought together expert content, travelers feedback and the latest technologies available on the market," says Frederic de Pardieu, CEO and Founder of mTrip. "We want travelers to remain stress-free, enjoy discovering new attractions and almost forget that they are even using a guide," says de Pardieu.


- AUTOMATED ITINERARY PLANNER - With its exclusive technology mTrip offers an automated trip planner.

All expert content is provided by Falk CIS, one of Europe's leading travel content providers. The user-generated content is provided by travelers, updated daily for free and available directly on iPhone and iPod Touch.
