If you're always on the go and own an iPhone or iPod touch, you could surely use a talking tour guide - especially when said tour guide knows some 230,000 by heart! As the developers put it, “It's like having a professional tour guide always by your side.” That's HearPlanet for you, and it's free to download this week only.
According to the folks at HearPlanet, the application with the same name turns your iPhone into a travel guide, with audio tours of over 230,000 locations. Normally, HearPlanet is $3.99, but the spirit of Macworld got to the app's vendors, rendering them highly generous for the week.
