This guide is a general guide of New York with cultural connotation. JSGuide has no business purpose, doesn't sell anything and has no connection with the businesses quoted. The guide presents short articles on each sight. If it does not replace site visits, but it has the ambition to give a clear idea of the city of New York you are visiting or you live in and its history, during your walk.
If you choose to download it, to optimize its use, it is helpful to read the following recommendations, for the 3 ways to use the guide: sightseeing preparation, sightseeing, album.
- MAP LOCATION
If GPS is On and you are in New York City, the map will center on your location; the icon that figures the user is green. At contrary, when it is red, location is Off; in this case, the map of New York will center on the spot or in the middle of the itinerary you are viewing. During the preparation of the visit you can disable the location.
- SIGHTSEEING, 2 MODES: PRESET ITINERARIES OR NEARBY
You can use the itineraries in New York. The application is flexible and you can avoid monuments or take a reverse way. For an accurate selection, browse all the cards of the tour and watch the map. For more flexibility, use the concept of proximity. You go in New York in an interesting place and you ask the list of the sights nearby. Call a sight-card and browse all the others to make your choice. If you call the map of New York you see also all the sights near your location.
- TECHNICAL ASPECTS
You can use tablet or smartphone. Visiting in New York, use the voice synthesis to read the cards (activated by pressing the speaker icon at the bottom of the cards). You can then use a headset, or simply put your smartphone near your ear, as in a phone call.
We recommend to fix the screen in portrait mode.
The audio function uses voice synthesis function of your smartphone. In the most common case this function exists in your device and is enabled. Otherwise, it must be enabled (Settings / Language / Text-to-speech / Preferred engine) and in some rare case a download is necessary (eg Google text to speech). If the engine is missing, you are notified.
