Most smartphone and tablet travel apps available on the market are designed to completely immerse you into the local culture, but a new travel app conceived by developer Kate Ray takes a different and more honest approach.

This particular smartphone app takes advantage of New Yorkers' famed tendency to explain other cities and neighborhoods through a New York lens -- for example, a New Yorker traveling through Berlin might compare Mitte to SoHo or Kreuzberg to WIlliamsburg. That being the case, this travel app can help you locate the Williamsburg equivalent in whatever city you're in, or on the other hand could even help you locate neighborhoods that you'd be better off avoiding.

Ultimately, this app is a way for admittedly self-centered New Yorkers to better understand other cities that they might find themselves in.
