Rough Guides World Lens iPad App

The high quality images found in the Rough Guides World Lens app make it a great app for all iPad users wanting to take advantage of the large iPad screen. The Rough Guides World Lens app contains over one hundred high-resolution images of attractions around the world. Each picture includes a caption describing the scene.

Rough Guides World Lens is a great resource to fully bring out the potential of the iPad screen.

The pictures are a great source of background and lock screen images for your iPad. Each photo is shot to fit the display of the iPad so there is no need to worry about cropping the images to fit landscape mode.  There are over one hundred images to choose from and they represent landmarks from all over the world. Rough Guides also frequently updates the photo library so that there are always new and fun images to browse.

A great function of the app is how it provides a world map with pins denoting where photographs have been taken. Having the world map allows you to also a user to choose where they would like to learn about culture, celebrations and other attractions throughout the world.

Each photograph is also a part of region-specific travel guides made by Rough Guides. These guides can be purchased separately from the app through their website.

Available for free at the Apple AppStore:
