13 Lonely Planet European Travel Guide iPhone/iPod apps for FREE

Found 19th Apr 2010Made hot 20th Apr 2010
In response to the widespread chaos caused by the eruption of Icelands Eyjafjallajokull volcano, Lonely Planet is offering 13 of its European iPhone guides free.

Travellers stuck in unfamiliar places need access to practical information as well as suggestions on what to do whilst stranded, said Tom Hall, Lonely Planet Travel Editor. Thats why were giving away iPhone city guides to major affected destinations.

The 13 guides will be free until Thursday, 22 April from the iTunes app store. You can access them via the links below.

The cities included are:



any good??

:whistling: Outstanding Deal... great guides and worth downloading ... well spotted just downloaded them FOC .... gratis... free... happy happy

Thanks H+R

Cheers, heat and rep added :thumbsup:

These are normally $15.99 each, which should translate to £9.49.

Worth downloading them all now on the off-chance that you'll use them in the future.

Some of the reviews aren't too favourable, but I guess that's based on the rather high normal price.

As RickyL7 said the original price was around $15.99 for some or even more in other cases.
The guides look really informative to me and offline maps are a plus.

These apps are getting terrible reviews on the AppStore. Ah well, guess you can't complain if it's free!

Any sort of guide is useful in my oppinion. And a free guide, unless it's for the wrong place, can't be bad.

Can't beat Lonely Planet guides imo - but the actual books. Heat added anyway as useful for some

Vancouver also included
"The sights" version whatever that means...

All of these applications are a bit clunky, but if you're stuck in a city with nowhere to eat, I'm sure they will be very handy.

Very nice.

normal price £9.49 each which seems steep although frees an absolute steal

all are over 20mb so I will have to download them at home on the wifi

great deal

Downloading some now. Nice spot. heat added....

what about the poor folks stuck in Manchester? they still have to pay! ;-)

great spot OP - many thanks :thumbsup:

Shame this had to be posted as a Freebie - I reckon most people (like me) only check the deals, I only searched in Freebies after seeing it on MSE and wanting to check it was posted here. If they'd been 1p each and posted in Deals I reckon this would have been sky-high!

Heat and Rep, these are usually near a tenner I think. Worthwhile having as they will hopefully update and become more comprehensive in the future.

great deal. thanks


These still seem to be available for free and there was a bug with some apps where the images didn't show properly but they have fixed that.
