Lonely Planet Globe Tripper iPhone and iPad App
Bored in line at the post office and need some interactive wanderlust? There's an app for that. Want to ogle some peripatetic pictures or bone up on world cultures while waiting out a flight delay? There's an app for that, too.
The fine folks at Lonely Planet have just released Globe Tripper, a travel trivia game for iPad ($2.99) and iPhone ($1.99). The app lets you travel the globe virtually, answering questions about culture, geography, current events, and language. Challenge friends by posting your stellar scores on Facebook and Twitter. If the thrill of competition isn't enough to get you hooked, the breathtaking photographs will be. Game on!
