It is free to download and comes pre-loaded with one free tour, the Women of Glasgow route, which explores the impact of the city's "female pioneers". 

Other routes, which cost money to download, include Dark Glasgow, which takes walkers from Queen Street through a graveyard and the High Court, ending at the Glasgow Humane Society in Glasgow Green.

A street art tour takes app users around Glasgow's graffiti highlights and the music tour shows off the best of the city's rich musical history. 

It is funded by the tourism group Experience Glasgow and was developed by the firm Open Pass Scotland, which is hoping to launch a pass for attractions in the city for one price, which it says will save visitors money.
