If you're a Serious Eater and you've planned to go to Paris anytime soon, you simply should not get on a plane until you've downloaded David Lebovitz's guide to the best bakeries, chocolate shops, and confectioners in the City of Lights.

Whether you're looking for ice cream, pastry, macarons, or hot chocolate, you'll want David's recommendations—he has personally visited each spot to sample their wares. (Tough job, right?)

Each listing has color photos and opening hours, a phone number, link to website (where applicable) and a location map, which you don't need to be connected to the internet to use, plus notes and descriptions of the specialties of each shop.

You can get more info about the app here on David's blog, and download it for $4.99 from the iTunes app store. Or...

Win It!
