Al's Apps

Al the Albatross planned to scour the city of Glasgow to find out lots and lots of information about Glasgow, its culture and attractions, restaurants and bars, and transport around the city.

So instead, Al presents a short list of useful phone apps for Ambassadors and Con-Goers from near and far.
