Testing the London Street Art Tours app with Nexus 7

I’ve been testing out the London Street Art Tours app recently and using a Nexus 7, it’s been a pleasure to try it out.

The app features street art locations, mapped out across various areas of the city of London. Using custom markers, the interface allows you to navigate around town using maps for areas, detailing pieces all over the city by both local and international street artists from Banksy to Sweet Toof, Robbo to C215.

Using the GPS and 3G connection I was able to pinpoint various pieces in my local area of Bethnal Green/Hackney Wick whilst out and about – I could then find out a bit more about the artist.

To gain access to more of the maps, you do have to pay, so this may not be for everyone, but it does extend the activity of the app itself. There is also another version of the app which includes some other city maps, including Bristol.
