“Travellers stuck in unfamiliar places need access to practical information as well as suggestions on what to do whilst stranded”, said Tom Hall, Lonely Planet Travel Editor, in a Press Release 19 April 2010. “That’s why we’re giving away iPhone city guides to major affected destinations.”
The 13 guides will be free until Thursday, 22 April from the iTunes app store. You can access them via the links below:
The cities included are:
Be careful how you download the guides. Most city guide from Lonely Planet is about 20 megabytes in size. It could cost you much if you use for example 3G or Edge. And it can be far more expensive than buying the book versions of the guides (most of them cost around 7.5 – 8.75 EUR - Euro).
Find yourself an open wireless network and download the city guides without worrying about money. Burger King and several other chain restaurants are safe places to use free Internet connection.
