The only app I will ever need for travel

I only downloaded one city that I already have to book guide. The fact that I can see in the app everything that is in the book is very helpful. The information is very clear and complex. The navigation thru the tabs is smooth and fast. I am very impressed. I love it. This might be the only app I need for traveling. Congratulations on a good job. Please don't change it, is perfect.

Complete Solution

I absolutely love this app. It has everything one could need for travel. The map function is excellent and works well with the gps on the phone. The sights listed are all very fun. The app layout is clean and the app itself is very responsive. Couldn't ask for more with a travel app.

Favorite travel app

Awesome features to pin locations you like on a map as well as filter all lonely planet recommended items.
