Iphone Walks Apps and Some Walks


A couple of interesting 'apps' have been drawn to my attention.

City Stories Walks is in its early stages but it aims to 'take you on a physical journey through a story, in your own time at your own pace

There are three FREE ways to take the walk -  iphone, mp3 or a pdf printout.   It currently only has 1 walk, but the 3 different methods make this an interesting approach.

The Museum of London has launched an augmented reality app which allows you to see old pictures of selected places in London as you walk around.
