Apple Offers Free Redeem Codes for AirPano's Virtual City Book App

by

The official Apple Store app is currently offering free redeem codes for AirPano's City Book app, which lets iOS users explore bird's-eye view panoramas of 10 famous cities from around the world.

Each high-resolution cityscape consists of multiple connected spherical photo panoramas that users can rotate and zoom 360 degrees via touch or by physically moving their iPhone or iPad in the direction they want to look.


Tapping a circled dot on the skyline transports the user to another area of the city map, which can include views from the air, from the ground, and sometimes from inside famous landmarks, such as St Peter's Basilica in Rome. Alternatively, users can scroll horizontally through a panel of the various views at the bottom of the screen to skip between locales more quickly.

Cities contained in the book include New York, Paris, Barcelona, Dubai, Amsterdam, Singapore, Rome, Shanghai, Buenos Aires, and Moscow, with a short city guide accompanying each. The locations are best viewed on Retina iPads.


The AirPano team is a group of Russian enthusiasts, specializing in taking high-resolution aerial panoramas from helicopters, airplanes, blimps, hot-air balloons and drones. AirPano's panoramas are frequently published in leading journals and have earned multiple international photo awards. AirPano's Travel Book is available as an in-app purchase, with the Wonder Book listed as "coming soon".


To get the $2.99 app for free, download and open the Apple Store app, scroll down the Discover pane and then tap the Featured App "Exclusively for you". A link to the App Store should appear with the redeem code already filled in, allowing users to download AirPano City Book at no cost.

Note: MR forum members running iOS 11 beta couldn't get the redeem code to work.

Update article please, it doesn't seem to work on iOS 11 as many have said here.




And yes, it doesn't work on my iOS 11 either.

Should we be qualifying every app-related article with 'doesn't work with iOS 11'? Seems a bit premature, to be honest. The public beta isn't even out yet. Plus I don't fancy bricking my iPhone again trying to find out. :D

Hm, it's just a few letters, and you won't getting all the messages above that it doesn't work on iOS 11 beta.

Okay, I'll add a note, but other warnings may have to be retrospective until the PB is released. Installing iOS 11 crashed one of my devices and made the other practically unusable, both requiring a rollback. Your mileage may vary, but that's the risk of running unsupported version 1 betas, I guess. Some devices come off worse than others.

Luckily there are more fortunate folks here by the looks of it. Thanks for letting us know! :)

how did you get it? There is no "just for you" or "discover pane" anywhere I can find.

You have to use the Apple Store app (not the App Store) to get it.
