Who has time to read an entire guidebook? This app can help quickly plan your day.
Name: Lonely Planet: Make My Day
Available: iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Requires iOS8 or later, and Android
Cost: The app is free, with limited content for six cities; additional content is $2.99 per city or $4.99 for all cities.
What it does: It's a super-simple app that lets you create your own "Morning, Afternoon and Evening" itinerary for Barcelona, Spain; London; New York City; Paris; San Francisco; and Tokyo.
What's hot: The Make My Day app, a companion to new Lonely Planet guidebooks of the same name, provides a powerful quick hit or "best of" what to do in the world's great cities. You get 13 choices per section of the day with the full version unlocked. Each individual attraction, such as Les Catacombs or the Eiffel Tower, has a description, website info, hours, admission fee, a map and a recommended place to eat nearby. The relatively short list of choices is key for someone who's seeing the city for the first time and has only a couple of days to visit.
