Travel guides for iphone
Modality has begun releasing Frommer's line of travel guides for the iPhone and iPod touch. The 2008 editions of Frommer's for New York, Paris, San Francisco and London are available for download from the App Store. Additional cities will be added later this year. Guides include travel tips, hotel and restaurant reviews, interactive maps, web links, phone numbers and other location-based travel information.
The information contained in the iPhone version will be the same as in the print version. Users can navigate through the guide using the touch screen interface. The information is stored in the application, not requiring an internet connection to use once it has been downloaded. Frommer's Travel Guides are available from Appple's App Store for $10.
