What good is an iPhone if it can’t take you to Paris?! Or an iPad that can’t take you on a stroll through Montmartre? I love having you vicariously tag along with me in Paris and I’m beginning to feel like you might really have a thing for this city. So I have a hunch you might like this brand new iPhone and iPad application I’ve come across. From the talented team behind the beautiful coffee table book Paris in Color, comes a new digital book combining fine art photography and minimalist video into visual stories of Paris neighborhoods. With every new volume, the Paris Journal will take you on a tour of a different neighbourhood in Paris, down hidden passages, through private gates and into boulangeries that look so good you can almost smell the buttery croissants.
The idea is to take a virtual walk through Paris whenever you want, at the touch of a button. The Paris Journal’s first volume, available to download now, will take you around the irresistible neighbourhood of Montmartre, the way a local would know their way around. While you save up for the real trip, this charming little app could be the perfect handheld substitute.
A free preview version and the full version (for $3.99) are available to download now. Versions available for Kindle, Galaxy and Android will be available soon.
