Lonely Planet

Though physical guidebooks—with on-the-ground reviews, updated regularly—remain the backbone of Lonely Planet, the 45-year-old publisher is finding fresh ways to feed its content to a new generation of travelers. Since the company was acquired by NC2 Media from BBC Worldwide in 2013, Lonely Planet has rolled out both a Guides app, which offers downloadable directories for 200 cities around the world, and the Trips app, which helps users turn their travel photos, videos, and destination advice into slick, shareable mobile guides. The company has also launched its own video platform, and collaborates with partners such as 23andMe on content.
