Travel iPhone Apps :: 2010 Guide

This installment of Travel iPhone Apps is a special edition given the 2010 Winter Olympics are only 4 days away!   Since many people will travel to Vancouver in person or vicariously through their TVs, 3 billion viewers are expected to watch the 2010 Olympics.  With this in mind, I thought the 2010Guide would be a worthwhile and timely app to feature! Released just days before the games begin Feb. 12, the 2010Guide iPhone app is more than just an "official spectator guide", rather a multi-faceted tool everyone from anywhere can use.  I have downloaded the app and it's bound to be my go-to, hand-held Olympic info hub.
