Get to the heart of a destination with Lonely Planet on your mobile device. Packed with tips and advice from on-the-ground experts, our city guides app is the ultimate resource before and during a trip.
Lonely Planet’s guides feature a Nearby button, which is a cool feature. Tap it, and the app shows you places to eat, sights, entertainment, shopping, and places to stay right near your current location. You can also filter these options to reduce or limit findings. Searches within any of the apps will comb through the table of contents, the book itself, and the Nearby feature.
For places to eat, places to stay, shopping, sights, and entertainment, you get a brief description along with an address, phone number, what metro or bus to take, and, in some cases, the cost. You are also given the distance in kilometers, which, of course, doesn’t help a typical American like me. Sometimes Lonely Planet’s apps will include links to the iPhone’s e-mail, telephone, or Web browser functions.
You can use the Lonely Planet apps to map out any hotel, restaurant, point-of-interest, or entertainment entry or to view your current location. But the apps won’t figure out directions for you.

This one is pretty straightforward. I love the simple interface of this app when I need a quick conversion. I also particularly love how I can stack up my currencies in one single frame.
