Headed to Austin, TX? Our friends at Lonely Planet just informed us about a special app you can download for SXSW.  

Even if you spend most of your time at the festival venues, you’ll want to take advantage of everything Austin has to offer. With Lonely Planet’s location aware app, you’ll know the best place to grab a late-night meal at the end of your night and be able to find the strongest cup of coffee nearby. And after the festival is over, you’ll want to experience the great BBQ and other highlights that make Austin a true Texan charmer.
