I received an e-mail from Fodor’s announcing that their mobile apps for the iPhone and iPad would now be free. When planning a trip and traveling, 95% of the time I go with a Lonely
Planet guide but for free I figured these apps might be worth a look (or a download).
The apps are only available for six cities so far:
(download each travel guide by clicking on the links)
I’ve actually visited all six of the cities that the apps are available for and don’t plan to visit them again in the near future. However, since I live in Brooklyn I thought that the NYC travel guide might be fun to check out.
I downloaded the NYC Travel Guide App and feel that for free it is a very nice and useful tool. It can be used to find out information and recommendations for dining, places to stay, shopping and sights. You can also book hotels, make restaurant reservations and buy concert and theater tickets.
Another nice feature is the option to download an offline map and also view a subway map.
