Lonely Planet Helps Stranded Travellers with Free iPhone City Guides


With snow and freezing weather continuing to disrupt holiday plans across Europe, Lonely Planet has made 13 of its European iPhone City Guides free to travellers.

“We know that travellers who might be stuck in unfamiliar places over Christmas will need access to practical information as well as suggestions on what to do while they’re stranded,” said Shawn Low, Lonely Planet’s Asia-Pacific Travel Editor. “That’s why we’re giving away our iPhone City Guides to many of the European destinations impacted by the snow chaos.”

The 13 guides will be free in the iTunes App Store for 48 hours until 3pm, Thursday 23 December 2010 (NZDT).

The cities available are:

• Amsterdam
• Berlin
• Copenhagen
• Dublin
• London
• Moscow
• Munich
• Paris
• Prague
• St Petersburg
• Stockholm
• Vienna
• Warsaw

Lonely Planet has also made its Compass City Guides for Android available for US$0.99c in the Android Marketplace for a limited time.
