What's New

We've implemented:
- a brand new and improved structure for the user profile page - you can now see who is following you and easily navigate between your guides
- a global city search function - you can now search for any city in the world as we've opened the app up to cities beyond our 57 official GuidePal city guides.

We're also creating high-quality themed mini-guides from local experts - 'Top 10 Eats in NYC', 'Budget Stockholm, 'Top 5 Bars in Barcelona' etc.

Plus - we have improved the location services and notifications - you can now determine the settings of these functions within our app.

And various bug fixes and performance improvements.
