I'm fed up with having to carry so much with me every time I visit a city, so I've started using mobile travel guides rather than lugging books and maps around all the time.

This Palm-based guide to Paris is based on the popular Dorling Kindersley book on the city of love. After installing both the travel application and the Paris pack you'll be presented with a series of icons representing different sections of the guide, such as Highlights, Around Town, Metro guide, and Street Index.

Although the icon-based navigation isn't quite as intuitive as the more traditional one-screen menu-style interface, one tap on any of the images will take you to that particular section. Once you start using the guide you'll be bowled over by how much data and useful information is in here, from quirky facts about the Louvre to details of some of the best hidden cafes in the streets of the French capital.

What I particularly like about the DK Eyewitness Top 10 Travel Guide & Map series is the inclusion of a huge database of top ten lists for the city, and the Paris version is no different. So, if you want to find out the ten best Da Vinci paintings to see, or are wondering what are the top walks to do, then look no further.

Another thing worth mentioning is the street and metro maps included in the guide, which are first rate, as they allow you to search for the quickest route between two places. Be sure to check the prices for the trains though, because those in the guide could be out of date.

If you want to discover Paris without having to carry a lot with you, this represents the perfect way.

From the Sacre Coeur to the Arc de Triomphe, your holiday to Paris starts from the moment you open your guide, plus you get Paris maps and transport maps. Discover the best cafe terraces, unmissable museums and galleries, loveliest parks and gardens, best areas to shop or browse, unforgettable shows and live music venues, most fun places for children, and best restaurants to suit every budget and much more.

With included maps and transport map this is your guide to the 10 best of everything that Paris offer. Whatever you plan to do - whether you are traveling first class or on a limited budget - make sure you experience the best of Paris. This quick reference guide turns your mobile phone in your travel companion and source of information.
