CityAdvisor v1.3 Beta Available
The popular CityAdvisor application by x_sliver has recently received a major update, bringing the build version up to 1.3. CityAdvisor is an online app resource designed to provide the most useful information and efficient directions when visiting a city for the first time.
The new beta version adds completely rebuilt engines among other minor additions including scrollbars for station and map selection and improved tourist attraction data. The bundled personal map creator has also been updated to accompany its sister application.
Since we last wrote about it, the CityAdvisor app has been revised several times. Its compatibility with Windows Mobile 6.5.3-6.5.5 is now considerably stronger than before, while the app now fully supports German language translation and will simulate peak times more effectively.
You can find more information in the application thread.
