Lonely Planet has announced a series of new country guide iOS app. Starting with Italy, Ireland, France, Spain, Australia and Costa Rica, Lonely Planet says that they are the first of their kind from an expert travel guide publisher.
The new guide apps contain expert content and recommendations and detailed maps for the entire country which work entirely offline so there are no roaming or data fees. The offline maps allow users to view the entire country, and then zoom in to a particular region, city, neighbourhood or street.
The Lonely Planet country guide apps are available for $10.49 each from the App Store or as in-app purchases within the Lonely Planet Travel Guides App [App Store].
