This app is really great. It shows the top places to go and where to eat. I use it mostly to find restaurants because I've tried many of their recommended places and they are always fantastic. I choose a restaurant and then click on the map and it have the option to take me directly to Google maps and see options of transportation and time to get there. Of course it doesn't have all the cities that you may want to visit but the updates are always adding more places. Keep traveling!!!
My partner and I are doing 10 weeks travelling Canada and America. We forgot to get a sim so have no Internet out here. Anytime we found WiFi we would download everything we could. It has saved our skin and shown us so many sides of cities that aren't on the brochures. An immense app and definitely using again!
Very lacking app. There are no guides available nearly every city I have searched for, like major cities! You then have the option of filling out a long request form for a city you'd like to see a guide for. I got tired of filling out forms, and never finding anything, so I deleted the app eventually. Still seems like a work in progress. Potential.
Tried briefly. Seems good. Free food from trusted source. Keep it up. Find a model for premium users to pay a fee. What I lack from good apps like trip advisor and foursquare is good detailed local context, and tips on local interest (walks, historic sites) harder to find.
The Lonely Planet app can't replace their awesome guidebooks but this is just right for a long weekend trip to find out what to do and see; where to eat and drink. Looking forward to taking this with me on my travels.
I use lonely planet books for years. The books are my personal bibles. Everything I ever needed for a travel, I found in the books. I am so happy an app version is available now.
