This guide is designed for optimal navigation on eReaders, smartphones, and other mobile electronic devices. It is indexed alphabetically and by category, making it easier to access individual articles. Articles feature information about attractions, landmarks, districts, transportation, cultural venues, dining, history and much more. Addresses, telephones, hours of operation and admissions information are included. The guide is complemented by clearly marked maps that are linked to city attractions. An interlinked phrasebook as well as a pronunciation guide are included.
This travel guide also features an itinerary with our suggestions for your travel route. Itineraries include links to individual attraction articles.
NEW FEATURE: The attraction articles now include links to Google Maps. On a dedicated electronic reader with a slow connection and a primitive browser, Google Maps will display the attraction on the map along with metro stations, roads, and nearby attractions. On an internet-enabled device such as the iPhone and the iPad, Google Maps will even show you the route from your current location to the attraction you want to go to.

Travel Barcelona and Catalonia, Spain Review
This eBook has proven to be an extremely useful guide. The hyperlinks are especially useful as it allows for easy navigation. Believe that the producers of this book have made more efforts to make it iPad friendly than other samples that I have tested out and I am truly satisfied with my purchase. I look forward to continue to learn from the vast content as well as the ease of use during my trip to Barcelona.
