But, when I hear about all these cool apps for the iPhone (save the annoying there's an app for that commercials) as they relate to travel- I'll admit, I have a little pang of jealousy.
If I had an iPhone, that is.
1. Probably the most talked about app is the Metro Paris Subway. This app offers complete maps of the Paris subway system, RER and bus lines, with schedules and the ability to find the closest Metro station to your location. It rocks!
3. Speaking of guidebooks, another big name is Frommer's. They also have a Paris app, which claims to cover only the BEST of the entire City of Light, from hotels to restaurants and all the activities in between.
4. Paris 3D app is just what you'd think it would be – Paris, in 3D. By all accounts, it is a pretty cool app with stunning graphics that allows you to see and visit Paris' best scenes and buildings. You can even find restaurants! And it offers more local info than Google Maps.
Price: Free for a limited time. Then $1.99
5. Paris 2Go app is a high-quality searchable map and guide for Paris, with in-depth historical facts, data, trivia and over 600 articles. Note that this one doesn't include hotel, restaurant or event info.
