To thoroughly research for her book Great Australian Pubs, author Lee Mylne called at more than 100 watering holes around Australia.

And off the back of the book, the Great Australian Pubs app is now available for iPhone and iPad. It includes more pubs than in the book, which was published by Explore Australia.

Using the device's GPS, the app lets users know which pubs are near them, some of their history and a bit about their services.

The app is $5.49 for iPad and $4.49 for iPhone from the App Store.
