Download my Florence smartphone city guide app for free!

[UPDATE: If you’re reading this now, you’ve missed the free download period. However, my Florence app is now selling for the nominal price of US$2.99, quite the bargain considering that the content could keep you busy sightseeing and happily eating for a couple weeks. If you download and enjoy the app, please rate it. For iPhone. For Android. Thanks!]

As part of the promotional blitz for my brand new, red-hot Florence Explorer app (For iPhone | For Android), I’m making it free for anyone to download today and tomorrow (June 21st and 22nd).

Feel free to share this freebie information with anyone (read: everyone) you know that’s armed with one of these devices. After Wednesday, the app will cost a mere US$2.99.

As many of you already know, I spent the better part of March, April and May researching and writing this app, including two solid weeks on the streets of Florence. My guide features dozens of the city’s best sights and activities, as well as over 120 eating & drinking options and over 40 sleeping options. My exhaustive work is being published by Sutro Media, who have developed a dynamic, user-friendly travel app platform and have already built a massive catalogue of travel apps for destinations in the US. My Florence app is among their first guides on a growing list of destinations outside the US.

And now for a humble request:

Being that iTunes/Android Market popularity/sales are largely fueled by user ratings and reviews, I would deeply appreciate a brief review of the app after you’ve had a chance to play with it. If you hated the app, you are encouraged to omit this step.

I did this gig for royalties only, expenses right out of my pocket, so every download (after Wednesday) means I get a little closer to recouping those expenses and, someday, paying for a fraction of my food, rent and wine.

Thank you in advance for any tweets, links and/or other help you can provide.
