TripAdvisor City Guides offer convenient, offline-accessible smartphone access
to a wealth of detailed destination information, including traveler reviews on
hotels, restaurants and attractions.

The Mobile City Guides apps are automatically synced with the freshest
TripAdvisor content available, so users can access the latest traveler reviews
and opinions on the go. Additionally, the Mobile City Guides offer insider
tips that can be viewed on the app without a data connection. Access to
offline information is particularly useful for travelers abroad, who can
download the apps before they go, sparing them from expensive roaming charges.

"Travelers need easily accessible travel information to guide them around the
cities they visit and the TripAdvisor City Guides allow users to access
TripAdvisor content on the go, upload photos and reviews, and gain insider
tips of each city – all while offline, free of expensive roaming charges,"
said Nathan Clapton, vice president of Mobile Partnerships at TripAdvisor. "We
are excited to bring 10 new Brazilian cities into our app portfolio,
completing availability for all 12 host cities to ultimately help all soccer
fans make the most of their trip to Brazil."

TripAdvisor Mobile City Guides apps are currently available for a total of 92
destinations (including these 10 new cities). The Mobile City Guides are
available worldwide in English for free in the Google Play store for Android
devices and shortly in the Apple App store, as is the free TripAdvisor app. To
date, more than 100 million people have downloaded the various TripAdvisor
apps across all platforms.
