WHAT Lonely Planet Country Guides Apps

AVAILABLE FOR iPhone, iPod Touch, $10

WHAT IT DOES Get thousands of recommendations for places to eat, sleep and sightsee. Lonely Planet's guides to Italy, Ireland, Australia, France, Spain and Costa Rica are the first to become apps. The entire app is available offline, so there are no data or roaming fees. It was designed for travelers already on the road, so you can tap into cultural sites and walking tours mapped to a specific neighborhood. Those who plan to use it for a future trip might find it tough if they don't know where they want to go first. Head for the "Highlights" and "Regional Itinerary" sections for inspiration before specifics, such as where to sleep or eat.
