Au revoir mon ami


We are planning a trip to Paris and London this summer, so I have my iPad loaded with Speakeasy French ($1.99 in the Apps Store). I think I'll be able to say Plus le vin s'il vous plaît. Unfortunately, I haven't found an app that will teach us to speak Brit. 

Some of the other apps we are counting on:

Lonely Planet guides (free)  has condensed versions of the full guidebooks for London, Paris, Rome, New York City and Las Vegas.

oMaps ($1.99) lets you download a store full street maps for major cities or regions. Like Google maps, the oMaps show hotels, restaurants and attractions and they let you all a pinpoint for locations that you choose. Having the map offline means you can use them when you're out or range of the Internet or when you want to avoid roaming charges.

Lately we don't go anywhere without TripAdvisor. Like the website, the free mobile versions deliver profiles and reviews of hotels, restaurants and tourist attractions and so far, they've never steered us wrong.
