By now, you’ve likely heard of the massive travel disruptions caused by the eruptions of EyjafjallajÃ¶kull (apparently pronounced “ay-yah-FYAH’-plah-yer-kuh-duhl“)Â in Iceland. Seeing how countless travelers have been stranded across European cities, one of the leading travel guide publishers have decided help iDevice users make the best of the situation. Dubbed “Volcano Relief Sale”, Lonely Planet have offered 13 of their popular City Guide apps as free downloads until April 22nd (until 11:59 PM GMT). Some of the cities include: London, Paris, Moscow, Rome and Vienna.
Not only are these travel guide apps fully optimized for the iPhone/iPod Touch, they also come with pre-installed maps and are designed for offline use (users can plot their locations right on the interactive map to see what’s around them). Normally priced at $15.99, this kind gesture is an extremely sweet deal for those who are currently stuck in one of these cities or are planning on a European vacation in the future. Â Personally, I’d download them all while they’re free. Maybe the apps will even inspire you to visit some of these cities one day. Complete list of the City Guide apps after the break!!
