Most travel apps can point you towards a budget hotel or tell you the way to the airport. Yet only Phaidon's Architecture Travel Guide - available now for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch - can tell you where you'll find the most important new buildings, wherever you may be in the world. From innovative Ethiopian tree houses through to Malibu's glass-skinned mansions, by way of galleries, offices, stations and flagship stores, you'll never be without something to gawp at admiringly.

You can browse through 1500 buildings from 840 different practices by location, project, and type; you can filter by region, practice and type, or scroll about on an interactive map; you can also recommend projects to friends via Facebook, Twitter, email and text - and you can bookmark your favourite buildings.

Each entry has pictures and an explanatory text written by Phaidon's panel of experts, as well as accessibility information and a map pinpoint. The app, which is currently on offer priced at £2.49, $3.99 and €3.59, has won plaudits from great architects such as Richard Meier, who described it as "a must-have for architecture students and professionals alike"; and from The Sunday Times, whose reviewer said that "the scale of this work, and the accessibility of its design, is such that is deserves a wider audience."
