Travel technology company ButlerTech has launched a new app.
The CityButler destination guide includes handpicked recommendations for hotels, restaurants, spas, shops and attractions among other features.
The app allows users to easily navigate and book activities or services in the chosen city and utilises geo-location for this.
On selecting a category, the user can view ratings of each business as well as reviews of their services.
Mike Mazza, chief executive and founder of ButlerTech, said: “Every business, attraction, tour operator, retailer or service provider that features on the CityButler app has been handpicked by our local experts to ensure each traveller can plan and enjoy the best possible city experience.
“Should any user need help or additional advice during their city stay, there is also a support chat section to message one of our assistants. Travellers can now rely on one single app for everything they might need during their city visit.”
Users can also tailor the app to their interests by selecting a calendar of relevant events or by browsing the top picks in the city to bookmark interests and create a ‘favourites’ list.
CityButler features eight cities for launch – London, Manchester, Bangkok, Melbourne, Pattaya, Phuket, Singapore and Sydney.
Further destinations in Asia, Europe and the USA are to be added in the coming months including Hong Kong, Manila, Kuala Lumpur, Milan, Rome and Chiang Mai.
ButlerTech aims to populate the app with 100 worldwide destinations within its first year of inception.
Following launch, CityButler will enhance the app by offering additional services including online bill payments, insurance purchases and daily deals.
CityButler is now free to download in the App Store and is available to use on desktop. The Android and tablet versions will be available by the end 2016.
