Dorling Kindersley has made its top 10 bestselling Eyewitness travel guides available for download onto a Apple iPhone or iPod Touch.
Priced £4.99, users will be able to browse sights, places to eat and things to do. The 10 destinations covered are: New York City, London, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Paris, Rome, Dubai, Barcelona, Cancun and Bangkok.

Users can also access a "favourites" tool and currency converter. Tom Hall, head of digital licensing for DK Publishing, said: "We are delighted to be launching DK's Top 10 guides for iPhone and iPod Touch users.
"The series is hugely successful in print, and the clear, structured format of its content lends itself perfectly to digital platforms in this manner. iPhone offers a user-friendly, streamlined route into our trusted content, providing travellers with exactly what they need to know, right when they need to know it."
The application was developed with software developer Coolgorilla.
