Travel Tech: Gay Amsterdam in an iPhone App

Loaded with up-to-date sight-seeing info, handy Google Maps and all the photos you'll need to spot your next stop, the only thing that might keep travelers from tossing their paper guidebooks is expensive international data transfer rates. (AT&T has tips and packages on this).
Our favorite feature on the Amsterdam Mobile Guide, of course, is that it's organized to help travelers narrow down their choices. Rather than standing on street corner scrolling through hundreds of activities, restaurants, and bars you don't want, the Mobile Guide groups To-Do List items by, for example, Gay and Lesbian, Nightlife, Architecture, and so on.
On that note, another handy feature of this iPhone app is that you can also organize your trip hotspots by how long you are staying with 8-, 48, or 72-hour itinerary suggestions,
