Lonely Planet has created the Globe Tripper App, a travel trivia game for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch where players virtually navigate the world, testing their knowledge and solving puzzles along the way.
Lonely Planet’s Globe Tripper App is the first game from the world’s leading travel content provider and was developed with BBC Worldwide’s Digital Entertainment and Games division. The purpose of the game is for users to test their knowledge of world cultures, history, geography, current events and language through a series of questions from the travel experts at Lonely Planet.
Lonely Planet’s Globe Tripper App is priced at £1.19 (iPhone and iPod touch) and £1.79 (iPad) and can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store.

Welcome to a new country
9th July saw South Sudan become the world’s newest nation. Celebrations took place in the new capital of Juba. This will be a destination for the completists, but the birth of a new country is always a noteworthy event. South Sudan’s birth may, however, turn out to be more noteworthy than it at first appears. The country’s big draw is wildlife, in particular that found at Badingilo National Park, home to an enormous annual migration of gazelle, antelope and other large animals. For now, it’s almost completely tourist-free.
Lonely Planet Magazine July
This month’s magazine includes BBC correspondent Fergal Keane in Beijing, the most beautiful train journeys in Europe and cut-out and keep guides to Brighton, Alentejo, West Cornwall, Umbria, Bucharest and Hong Kong
