Top Five iPhone/iPad Apps for Your Next Trip to Paris

Top Five iPhone Apps for ParisThanks to the increase in iPhone/iPad users and proliferation of Apple-friendly travel apps, it is now possible to leave those heavy guidebooks and pesky printed pages at home.

Here are my suggestions (listed in no particular order) for apps to make your next trip to Paris easier and more enjoyable.
