London24 today proudly launches a fantastic new FREE app offering the ultimate mobile city guide combining more than 30 specialist mini-apps in one place.

Location-based, real-time and really useful - our app contains a wealth of information at your fingertips whenever you need it.

Archant, publisher of London24.com, has partnered with MyCityWay to provide this discovery tool which will help locals, tourists and business travellers alike.

The mini-apps within MyCityWayLondon24 lets you check up-to-the minute traffic feeds with live camera images of London's busiest road intersections.

You can also locate the nearest parking spot, or simply find a list of the places nearby where you can get a coffee.

Within the app, you can find out what's showing at the nearest cinema, discover concerts or special events, go shopping nearby and connect with others to share tips about places and events.

Not only can you find things on your doorstep you never knew existed, you will also never get stuck again if you're in a part of London you're unfamiliar with and looking for the nearest cashpoint, wireless hotspot or place to grab something to eat.

Paul Hood, digital director for Archant London, said: "We are very excited to be able to offer a free-of-charge urban discovery tool, enabling residents, tourists and business travellers to navigate, explore and enjoy London in unprecedented ways.

"It is a natural extension of our London24 digital brand and the Archant core mission to serve London residents, commuters and tourists with helpful and relevant information."
