From the first page of each Module, travelers can easily access hundreds of entries through the app’s touch-sensitive list of Categories. Divided into two parts, The City and Places of Interest, users can quickly look up any detail, or browse through individual Categories. The City includes the following Categories: General Information, Eat and Drink, Getting There, Entertainment, Fun Facts, Where to Stay, and Tours.

Places of Interest includes the following Categories: All Places, Favorite Places, Accommodations, Bars and Cafes, Beauty and Spas, Entertainment Venues, Museums and Galleries, Nightclubs, Outdoor Activities, Practical Information, Restaurants, and Shopping.

Events, compiled up until July 2013, can be filtered into three different listings: Today, Within the Next 3 Days, or Within the Next 30 Days.
