Readers, Applications, eBooks.... Le Petit Futé is a must on the nomadic market.

After the digital guides that can be browsed on iPhone/iPad (Readers), Le Petit Futé launched its first interactive application for Apple smartphones in September 2010 in France. Since then, aware of the importance of these new nomadic media, Le Petit Futé has constantly developed its digital offer on all available OSs.
Thus, at the beginning of 2013, Le Petit Futé offered more than 1,500 applications on 6 different OSs (iOS, Androïd, Windows, Bada, Palm, Blackberry) and had more than 12 million downloads.
In parallel and as from 2011, Le Petit Futé would invest in the still innovative but most promising field: the eBook (a digital book with multiple functionalities that can be consulted on tablets and other readers but also on a computer via a specific reading software, and whose purchase price is approximately 45% cheaper for Le Petit Futé than its paper equivalent).
Today, Le Petit Futé offers more than 1200 digital guides and more than 3,000 eBooks available from more than 50 retailers in France and around the world.
Le Petit Futé is currently the number one seller of tourist and practical eBooks in France and throughout the French-speaking market. 2014 saw the birth of the "smart eBooks", a hard copy of these digital guides, sold in all libraries.
