Today I just wanted to say a big thank you to the Travel desk at the Independent for running a review of Seasonal Cities recently. Rather appropriately, the app is completely independent, which we think is important.

‘In 2015, you could also ditch the guide book for something technological. The latest supplier of non-printed mini-break information is Seasonal Cities ( – a smartphone app which made its debut in the autumn. It gives daily suggestions on how to experience a city (museums, restaurants, excursions) based on the weather forecast – and currently covers 11 of them, including Barcelona, Berlin, Rome, Paris, Tokyo and Moscow. New content is supplied for each of the four seasons (79p per season, per city)’.
