Our Touch, your Travels…


Guidebooks for the mobile age

TouchScreenTravels publish quality independent travel apps that combine the opinionated and informed writing of traditional guidebooks with the benefits of smartphones and tablets.

The TEXT is written by professional travel writers to be informative, engaging and to-the-point while the interface is IMAGE-LED, so the apps are beautifully organised and illustrated. We also use tech to allow you to tag favourites, easily find locations, click on websites, search text and much more – but try never to lose simple user-friendliness.

Our content comes at travel planning from every direction: they discuss trip ESSENTIALS; introduce key PLACES in a destination; suggest ITINERARIES; and sort sights and activities by key INTERESTS. We're also determined you won't go hungry, so always suggest great and convenient places to EAT & DRINK too.


“Your app was invaluable in allowing me to make the maximum use of my time and see a wide variety of fantastic sites. I never once had to open the guide book that I also took along. I highly recommend your app to everyone… Thank you!”
