Conflict of interest disclosure: Lonely Planet provided a free copy of Make My Day for the purposes of the review.
Lonely Planet’s new format that mixes and matches to create a perfect day really works well, in that it visually shows 3 pages on a larger page with each a choice, so you can create a morning, afternoon, and evening adventure, and notes help where nearby restaurants are, how long it takes to get to the next spot on your day, and it can all be on their free App called Make My Day. Since you’re purchased the book, it adds more content to the App, and we all like to swipe to move to a new page, so that’s exactly how this works, great, huh!
The maps, diagrams, photos are first quality too, and it only costs $9.99 for the books – Tokyo, Paris, San Francisco, New York, Barcelona, London, and a new group coming out in Fall 2015 will cover Amsterdam, Sydney, Berlin, Washington, DC, Rome, and Hong Kong. The App is iPhone or Android, free, and if you want to purchase the content for a volume, it’s only $2.99 for one and $4.99 for all.
I liked the ease of it’s flipping and discovering sights, the photos helped explain what was there. I learned enough to make a place to my list or not. Perfect. I loved the series.
