We found fantastic restaurants and bars around any area we were at each day, used the maps to navigate, and any information could be found quickly and easily.
The prices were not accurate although this is May 2010 edition and we went to Barcelona in July, but I suppose it is very difficult to follow the soaring prices of the touristic attractions.
Utter rubbish, stick to the paper version.
P.S. 5 stars to Amazon for the no-quibble refund.
Elsewhere, the book is not as easily navigable as it should be. The writing is second to none and only once has a Time Out restaurant guide really let me down (in Madrid as it happens)but the strap line on the cover "Eat Drink Shop Sleep Explore Enjoy" has begun to grate as to the perceived importance of exploring a city. Indeed, the lack of a proper index is increasingly infuriating.
As I said, I would still recommend taking the guide - just be aware of the issues with the maps and, if you are so inclined, consider using in tandem with another guide. Meanwhile, I hope the publishers will remedy the faults by the next edition.
