Toursphere Tours of Boston

5/30/2012 10:08:00 PM
Got an email recently about a mobile app company called Toursphere that provides tours of Boston that you can pull up on your phone.  I'm listening to the Boston Public Garden one right now.  Pretty informative (and free) for out of towners that want to walk around Boston on their own and not have to read a tour book.

Mobile app platform TourSphere has put together a list of free mobile apps here in Boston (or a day trip away) that provide users with great multimedia tours of historical sites, gardens, and cities. The tours, which just need a mobile device (smartphone, iPad, etc.) to access, provide visitors with maps, supplementary multimedia materials, and other information, and they're great for bringing places to life for the kids.
