Câmbio Legal is an iOS and Android app released this month by the Brazilian Central Bank to enable tourists to find the nearest currency exchange desk authorized by the instituition. The tool covers 12,000 exchange desks across the entire country and lists address, phone number, opening hours and the services available, such as money exchange and ATMs.
If you happen to stop by São Paulo, the biggest city in Brazil, during your Confederations Cup visit, SP Mobile is a useful app. The tool was developed by local agency WebTraffic for the São Paulo Tourism Board (SPTuris) and offers information on hotels and restaurants, city parks, clubbing and cultural attractions as well as useful telephone numbers, tourist information services and maps.
Rio de Janeiro Trip Advisor Guide
Another good app to be used in conjunction with the Host Cities G4R guide (also mentioned in this article) is the Rio De Janeiro Trip Advisor Guide. It includes in-depth info on restaurants, attractions, hotels, as well as the website's trademark user reviews. The beauty of this app is that a live data connection is not necessary as everything is stored on the user’s device after the initial update.
