What's New in Version 1.1
Having seen so many 5 star reviews of this app I thought this would be pretty good. However I've just been to Paris and Bangkok and this is actually pretty useless!
The Paris map/sights doesn't even include the Eiffel Tower!
No transport/subway maps, most 'sights' are ATMs, and the 'useful phrases' doesn't have 'hello' or 'thanks' - just 50 ways to tell someone that you've lost you're credit card!
So much info & so easy to use!
What a great app ... a whole range of cities in 1 app ... with maps, phrases & event info.
Nice work Lonely Planet :)
Thank you, Visa and Lonely Planet!
I haven't bought any of the other LP apps yet, but if they're anything like this, I will!
