usual high standard of content; e version has very poor search/index facility
on 4 January 2013
I like lonely planet guides and this content was to the usual high standard. However this was my first purchase of a LP guide in electronic format and I was very disappointed. It was very hard to find one's way around the e version. Although better on an i pad than a kindle, the search facility is very poor. Even something simple like hotels in luxor is impossible. I cannot understand why the usual paper index is not replicated. the content section at the front is very high level. On the kindle the maps, a key useful feature, are almost unreadable. Obviously there are no pictures on the kindle and the whole presentation is very unappealing. This is better on an ipad, but none of the maps have any interactive features and when expanded to make them readable, they become grainy. The links to the internet seem very slow. The book needs a complete redesign to make it useable as an e guide. Surely this is not difficult.
