omfg been waiting for them to actually make this kind of app for years. Looks like it works exactly how it should work. As someone who travels almost exclusively with LP, carrying about the book (or part of the book - i tear out relevant pages) is generally cumbersome. This is AMAZING at first glance. Wish I had it in asia a few weeks ago. Wow. Nice work LP! Finally!

also looks like there's an android version available. @eriktorenburg @rrhoover you guys might want to change subtitle to "on your phone" and add https://play.google.com/store/ap... for android link

@mulligan "omfg been waiting for them to actually make this kind of app for years." Me too. Me too. @mmccroskey & @bradhaynes, I was contemplating building a native app very similar to this a couple years ago while working on @ohheyworld, and selling it to LP. Or, building it for LP as a consulting project. I think I actually did try to connect with a business development person, but never made any real progress. I knew what the product should be, but didn't have anyway to get the data. Congrats!

Legend has it Steve Jobs carried a Lonely Planet Guide when he traveled to India.

Love the offline maps mode --- so useful in different cities where cell signal is iffy.

@samir_doshi Glad you like it! And as @bradhaynes said, a big request from customers. Please let us know how it works for you if you get a chance to try it!
Just downloaded and grabbed maps for a few cities. Looks amazing.
