Ratings and Reviews
Paris, Tokyo, Cape Town, Buenos Aires—Lonely Planet’s travel guides cover an incredible range of cities worldwide. The publisher’s awesome app offers dozens of guides free, and they’re all crammed full of insider knowledge and trustworthy tips. Get the expert lowdown on local hotels, restaurants, shops, museums, and highlights every visitor should know about. Learning about attractions near your current location is super-handy, and the offline maps are detailed and easy to use.
Good Content (especially rating places) and great for offline
The two best things: eat places (that rarely miss a recommendation) and offline feature.
Some more insight on when places have been reviewed could be good.
Definitely a must-have travel app
