Here's the ultimate list of travel apps, my personal favourite being the Lonely Planet one. We are so lucky to live in this magical age of wires and reed switches; I don't know what I'd do without GPS.
A Tripatini member has posted a question in Ask A Travel Pro about opinions re mobile e-guidebooks vs. traditional guidebooks. If you'd like to offer your two cents please click this hyperlink.
Health-minded travelers might want to take a look at this past week's Read of the Week: Travel iClinic by Dr. iSeb, by Tripatini member Dr. Sebastian Kalwij.
I just uploaded the free Landmark West! Walking Tour by New York City's Upper West Side preservation group, Landmark West. It's not an audio tour -- you have to read the texts -- but it's exceptionally chock full of architectural details, from the highly informative to the amusingly anecdotal.
Each site is clearly described by address, architect, date of construction, style and type of structure, façade material and landmark status, followed by a short contextual essay as to the building's significance. One may also choose additional sidebars at will to learn some "fun facts", architect bios, explanation of architectural styles, history of the particular street location, etc.
A very convenient self-guided tour of one of the city's most architecturally rich neighborhoods. Just please please please be mindful not to read and walk at the same time. :)
The app is free.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.
Requires OS 4.0 or later.
