What’s New In Version 2
The second version of the XLR8R Scion City Guide app is completely redesigned and simplified. With fewer screens to navigate, and more intuitive access to the information contained within, new features include:
- New planning view, where the user can create a plan while browsing information. Plans can be shared with friends via Facebook, Twitter and email directly from your phone.
- Browse listings by tabbed categories, both in a list and map view.
- Filter results with a pop-up screen that allows the user to narrow by distance from current location, day of the week and time of day.
A collaborative effort in a long tradition of forward-thinking projects undertaken by XLR8R and Scion, the City Guide allows users to navigate editorial picks for the coolest bars, restaurants, cafés, galleries, shops, record stores and unique spots, with supporting descriptions, locations, photographs and more. We've even selected the best one-off music and art events for each city, including Scion racing and lifestyle events.
Inspired by XLR8R magazine's annual City Guide print editions, the City Guide application features hundreds of hand-selected locations and events.. The City Guide is a discriminating resource for planning a trip or just figuring out what to do tonight, filling in the cultural gaps left behind by mainstream guides.
Once you've installed the City Guide app, just choose a city, what you'd like to do and when you'd like to do it, and an extensive list of XLR8R's favorite shopping, eating and music-related activities will be at your fingertips. You can also view picks on a scalable map and create a shareable plan from your selections.
An excellent tool for urban exploration, tap into culture with the XLR8R Scion City Guide.

No events in Boston...
Miami/Ft. Lauderdale? Now all we need is the scion radio app!
Finally available for android! Xlr8r knows what's up. If they are so right on about the recommendations in my area, I can trust them elsewhere.
XLR8R is known for super discerning musical and cultural insights, this app is a city by city guide for the best stuff. Had it on iPhone before.
