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.

You can find more information in the application thread.
