FourEyesUp's geeky guide to London finds its way to iPhone

Described as a Swiss Army knife for techie travellers, FourEyesUp has launched its London Guide for iPhone.

The app boasts, amongst other things, a geek shopping guide covering “London’s best technology, photography, comic book and home entertainment stores”, along with listing high-tech hotels and London-based technology events and attractions. These cover categories such as science museums and computer sightseeing, tagged to highlight the work of science and technology icons, such as Charles Darwin, Michael Faraday, Guglielmo Marconi, Alan Turing or John Logie Baird.

There’s a more practical element to what I’d describe as a sort of Lonely Planet guide for nerds. The app also provides info and advice for travellers wanting to buy a mobile phone, 3G dongle or need access to free WiFi — and, for those that don’t want a holiday from Twitter and the like, FourEyesUp’s London Guide highlights (some of) London’s “best” bloggers and Tweeters. TechCrunch Europe editor Mike Butcher is listed but it appears that I (@sohear) am not. An oversight, perhaps!

And as you’d expect, the iPhone app employs GPS to make the London Guide location-aware to enable users to pinpoint sites of interest. It’s available for an introductory price of £0.59/€0.79/$0.99 from the iTunes App Store.
