Lonely Planet app for Windows Phone in development

More good new for you travelers out there, especially if you're fans of Lonely Planet. Evidently, they're in the midst of making a Windows Phone app just for you and your globe trotting ways.

Hi James,

Our developers are currently working on creating apps for Windows phones. I can't give you a date that they'll be available (because we're not sure!) but it is happening should be ready later in the year.

No word on release date/time frame, but at least according to their customer support, it seems to be happening. Fingers crossed.

Thanks, James A., for the tip!

Lonely Planet app for Windows Phone in development


This is good news of course, now I just wish TripAdvisor would get cracking on a proper Windows Phone 7 app with Metro UI, and not just the same app ported from Apple devices.

That would be awesome, I use their books all the time while overseas. Too bad Sprint doesn't have a device that works outside of the US. *sigh*
