Rick Steves Audio Europe™

Rick Steves Audio Europe™


This app organizes the vast and varied library of Rick Steves’ audio content into geographic-specific playlists so that travelers can enjoy ready access to the information that relates specifically to their travel plans. Many tracks provide general cultural and sightseeing information gleaned from his public radio program, Travel with Rick Steves. Other tracks are self-guided tours to great sights and historic walks. While we travel there’s lots of down time, and this application can both entertain and teach. Rick Steves Audio Europe will hopefully make your European travels more meaningful and more fun.

Features:

• The app downloads and stores audio files on your device. No Wi-Fi or cellphone connection is required to listen. (You will need a connection if you choose to add audio tracks later.)
• Handy maps (PDF) that complement the self-guided audio tours can be viewed on your device or printed from any computer.
• The audio content originates from Rick Steves guidebooks and the Travel with Rick Steves public radio program. Self-guided tours are excerpted from Rick Steves country and city guidebooks.
• Rick Steves Audio Europe is a work in progress. New audio tracks will be added and existing tracks updated as necessary.
Requirements:

• Android OS 1.6 or higher.
• A Wi-Fi or cellphone connection is required to download audio files.

Recent changes:
• Fixed an crash issue that occasionally occured on the player.
• Fixed an issue where audio would, in some cases, not pause when receiving a phone call
• Chapter titles are now displayed in the title bar in audio tours

Cheesy but awesome Okay, the jokes are cheesy. But the audio tour of the archeological museum in Greece, in concert with the exhibits, gave me my first solid understanding of the history of Greek culture. It really did make the museum come alive, and I'm grateful.

Crashes It crashes as soon as I try to download a podcast. An earlier version worked great on our trip to Prague. The walking tour was super. I hope the bugs get fixed soon.
