NYC Essential Guide

#1 Travel App for the Big Apple

nyc essential guide

NYC Essential Guide is a iPhone travel guide that helps visitors gain insights to the Big Apple. Its a user friendly app for tourists offering over 400 listings along with top places to visit. It allows users to plan their trip and make the most of their time in NYC.


Our goal was to revamp and redo the entire iPhone app and provide a much better user experience to the end user. We worked with the client to create fresh UX & UI Designs for the iPhone App that appeals to the target audience who were mostly international travelers in their mid 40s - 60s. We created a simple, intuitive and clean user interface in line with the current iOS design trends.

We took care of the complete architecture of the backend system and the native iPhone app programming. For better content delivery and performance we used Node.js and MongoDB as the backend technology.
