Frommer's Travel Guides Come To the iTunes App Store

Frommer's Travel Guides Come To the iTunes App Store

I absolutely love travel books — they provide you with useful tips, suggestions and maps for popular destination spots around the globe. But what I don't love is lugging these heavy books around while I'm trying to admire the Champs-Elysées or while trekking across the Sahara Desert.

That's why I was thrilled to learn that Frommer's is going digital by offering iPhone and iPod touch apps available for purchase from the App Store in iTunes for $9.99. So maybe they aren't free, which would be nice, but you'd spend the same amount on a book and this way you don't get stuck carrying a heavy book during your travels!

To get the app, just click on the travel category in the App Store and you'll find the 2008 editions of Frommer's London, New York, San Francisco and Paris.

I used this on my Windows Mobile phone a couple of years ago for a trip that I took to the Florida Keys. It was great. And, it was free! I downloaded it from my local library's website.

This would make the iphone the perfect travel companion if you can only switch sim cards on the iphone while you travel so you don't end up with astronomical roaming charges with the ONE service provider you're stuck with...

the key is to move out of the flow of sidewalk traffic so you don't get pummeled while looking up your destination on your phone!

Geek, I can relate to this. I visited NYC a few years ago and I carried that brick, I mean book with me and it was a nightmare. Now sweet relief. I'm totally purchasing this.
