NYCGO.com selected Treasure Walks New York as a favorite app in the NYC attractions category. The Treasure Walks New York app for iPhone offers users an interactive guide to explore Central Park, 5th Ave, Time Square and the Brooklyn Bridge. The app offers 3 great walking tours; embedded in each tour is a scavenger hunt.
Answer the challenges by finding a monument, a date, a special place. Questions are answered by text or by taking a picture. The app tracks your position along the tour route so you really can’t get lost. If you miss a clue the app will even tell you to go back and look again.
If you want to take the challenge to the next step you can compete with other users to score the most points in the fastest time. If you just want to follow the walking tour skip the questions and amble carelessly.
When your walk is finished upload your tour to Facebook, it’s like sending a postcard to your friends.
