A new iPhone app has just been launched which allows you to explore cities around the world through the medium of short fiction. You can either read or download the audio version of each story, and stories can be searched for by genre, by location, or by length. So if you have, say, 15 mins to listen to something, you just flick through to those stories in that section.
Once you’ve chosen a story, you can read a blurb about the author, and, if you choose the audio version of the story, you’ll also get an interactive map of the story’s setting, allowing you to explore the area.
