What a great app! This app isn't as in-depth as one of their books, but there's still plenty of information. It's especially great for anyone who is visiting the city for a week or two and wants to know what there is to see. You can easily add attractions to your favorites. And the guide is available offline too! They need a few more places in Indonesia though!! Bali especially deserves a guide!
Content is great. Interface is weak. Specific issues: 1) home grown map interface isn't as good as Google maps (current location isn't displayed even when maps knows location); 2) guide search interface is poor, and worse in low bandwidth settings; 3) ui behaves oddly on tablet. Small suggestion: Call the app Lonely Planet -- "Guide" is a meaningless generic name that doesn't maximize your brand.
Seems like a good app, but according to Google play there are in app purchases. I've yet to find any information within the app that isn't freely available? Has it been mislabelled in the play store or is there content somewhere within the app that I'll eventually have to pay for?
I love the content - great tips and insights that are sure to be helpful to frequent travellers and first time visitors. But i cant log into my account! Whenever i try, it crashes. What a shame, because i cant access features like bookmarking locations i like.
Its a great app with great content. Travelling a lot, I couldnt ask for better information. However, for android it lacks the neighborhood description which ios provides and which I found really interesting. Also its been a while since the last city was added. Waiting impatiently :-)
It's a great app and people who love the books which are amazing should definitely get it. This is kind of app that is needed more and it's great to see The Lonely Planet name on it. I do agree with some of the other feedback, that the interface needs to be more responsive and to work more fluidly especially when your in the middle of a city and on the sideblock and need things to work fast. Definitely keep the price options/value of places as it's a great indicator of what you want to do and how to plan things out. It's great to have it and would recommend.
