Lonely Planet Travel Guides

 

Description

"Lonely Planet guidebooks are, quite simply, like no others." New York Times

*FREE San Francisco City Guide and Mexican Spanish Phrasebook*

Start your Lonely Planet app library by downloading the Lonely Planet Travel Guides app that can store your Lonely Planet City Guides and Phrasebooks in a single application. Each time you travel to a new destination, browse our current list of more than 75 titles available through this application and download the City Guides and Phrasebooks you need to make travel that little bit easier.

How does it work?

EASY BROWSING: Flip through a list of titles, or scroll across a globe to choose your destination.

EASY DOWNLOADING: Just click on the title you want; iTunes and your app will do the rest.

EASY TRAVELLING: In one of the world’s great cities: we’ve included the San Francisco City Guide in the LP App for free!

What LP travel guides can I download with the LP App?

As of right now, you can purchase 75 titles through this app, including 58 City Guides and 17 Phrasebooks. And that’s in addition to the *FREE* San Francisco City Guide and Mexican Spanish Phrasebook apps that come with this application

· easy to use - swipe to scroll through a full table of contents, dip into sections, and turn pages with a flick of your finger

· offline maps – there’s no need to go online to access our detailed street maps, fully retooled for the iPhone with location awareness, multi-touch controls, full-colour styling and six-level zoom

· tons to see and do – choose how to search through hundreds of geo-coded points-of-interest (POIs) – by proximity, category, preferences or favourites – then just tap to visit the website, or place a direct call

· text search – whether you’re into ‘live music' or ‘fine dining’, every article and POI in your guidebook is text-searchable

· location-based navigation – plot your location in real time on our interactive maps, exploring back streets and hidden treasures with no danger of losing your way

· worth a thousand words – if you need some inspiration, just thumb through images taken by our award-winning photographers

· personalisation – tailor your City Guide to your tastes by tagging the best POIs as ‘favorites’

· money saving – forget roaming costs: our apps are designed for offline use, and only take up the room of an average album on your iPhone/iPod

Note: This application is currently only able to purchase and store version 1.x of our City Guides . These guides still provide great Lonely Planet content, just with an older interface. *Coming soon* this application will be upgraded to enable in-app purchase and updates to the current range of Lonely Planet guides where available.

What's New in Version 3.1.2

In-app purchasing and storage of Lonely Planet City Guides and Phrasebooks.

Lonely planet losing touch - DO NOT BUY

:
DO NOT BUY THIS APP, OR ANY GUIDES. THEY ARE INCOMPLETE RIP-OFFS AND JUST A DUMP OF THE PAPER GUIDES (POORLY EDITED, OUTDATED AND FULL OF ERRORS)

I downloaded the Lonely Planet app, and decided to purchase the Istanbul guide. Bad move. On both counts.

The Lonely Planet app is poorly written, with impossible to delete content (let me archive it on my desktop and keep it off my handheld if I don't need it!!!), but that could be forgiven for a fantastic guide. Alas, that is not the case.

The Istanbul guide is a lousy dump of the paper guide onto an 'electronic' format. Think of digital maps before google and mapquest. Zero interactivity, horrific navigation, missing landmarks, hotels, restaurants, etc. The 'city map' is offered as a street map that works with GPS. With my iPhone 3GS, I couldn't get a GPS lock 80% of the time, in open areas. Forget about trying to determine whether your cabbie is ripping you off or kidnapping you. The map is useless in a car (even when held under the windowpane).

We ended up using my wife's paper book guide (D&K) who was more than happy to rub my 'modern digital guide' in my face.

#FAIL

Garbage

:
Excuses why they can't put the individual city guides in the main app should be overcome. Poor implementation.

2/5 stars

Not very useful

:
It's nice to be able to pull up all their products in one place, but why they can't support apps you bought separately is beyond me.
