Planning your holidays? Here are some apps you really should try this summer, because life's just too complicated to live without apps! ;)
This is an app that helps you stay on top of your holiday plans. Forward your hotel, airline, and car rental confirmation emails and your itinerary will be instantly available in the app, along with maps and directions. You can even access your itinerary offline.
If you have issues with foreign languages, this app is great because it not only shows translations but also pronounces phrases, grouped into categories such as greetings, transportation and eating. This can really be a lifesaver when you find yourself in an area where nobody speaks the language(s) you do.
TimeOut – Discover your City
A great directory of things you can do when traveling around the world. It covers restaurants, events, bars, attractions, and arts and entertainment in more than 50 cities. This app also allows you to book concert tickets and restaurants. It is your perfect travel assistant, helping you discover new things and sights while abroad.
Even though this is already a “retro” app, Foursquare is still a great guide to find the best places to eat, drink, party or shop, with recommendations from friends and other people. Use Foursquare and access more than 75 million short tips from local experts.
Rick Steves' Audio Europe™
This is a unique app because it has a big library of audio tours for your European travel. With this app you’ll get Rick’s guided walking tours of many of Europe’s museums and sights, as well as hundreds of tracks from his radio show covering travel tips and cultural insights. No Wi-Fi connection is required to listen to the tracks – you can download them before the trip.
BringFido is a service for pet lovers. You can visit the site or use the app to locate the nearest dog parks and pet-friendly hotels for your furry friends in more than 10,000 cities worldwide. You can also use it for information about pet stores, veterinarians, doggie day care facilities and more.
This is a very useful app for travelers. Just enter your itinerary and the app will recommend restaurants, gas stations, resting spots, point of interests, accommodations and more. The app can also give you an estimate of how much money you can expect to pay for gas.
If you like to document your travels, this is the app for you. It is an “automatic travel journal” which automatically maps routes, checks you into places you visit and uses your photos to create your own digital travel journal that you can use to re-live and share your adventures.
