There are travelers who like to have everything under control, who plan every stage of their trip and don’t leave the slightest detail to chance. And then there are those who indulge in adventure and the unexpected, who plan nothing and know nothing about the what, how or when. Both are valid—great travelers at the end of the day. Here we have put together a list of ‘the best APPS for travelers’; no matter what type of traveler you are, surely one or two of these will come in handy!
· Google Maps: A must—life would not be the same without it! What can we say about this app that you don’t already know?
· Google Translate: Still in the Google camp. When travelling it often occurs that we don’t speak the language. That’s why it is a good idea to use a translation program. Google will surely be helpful here.
· Tripadvisor: This is another travel app that we often use, both when travelling and on a day-to-day basis! We use it whenever we want to find out about a restaurant or hotel. And it has a good integrated GPS to take you to your destination without getting lost.
· TravelSafe Pro: This is very useful when travelling. It gives you offline information on emergency services in the destination country. It gives you addresses and phone numbers of your embassy, consulate, ambulances, firemen, police… so that you can call in the event of an emergency by simply clicking.
· Postagram: Are you one of those people who send postcards and appreciate receiving them? Surely you’ve noticed that nice postcards are a scarce commodity in many places. Postagram is the solution: you can send postcards (on paper or virtual) with a picture chosen from your Facebook, Instagram or directly from your cell phone.
· SkyScanner: How can you find the cheapest flights and connections? SkyScanner is one of the best flight aggregators and their app looks nice and is easy to use. You can add a widget showing you the cheapest price to your destination, keeping you abreast of the best offers.
· Tiempo en Vivo (Weather Live): This weather app shows you the weather in real time in your city and in any city in the world. It also gives you long-term weather forecasts.
· Flight Track 5: This mobile application gives you real time information on the status of your flight, so you can find out if it is cancelled or delayed and it even tells you your boarding gate. And you can follow the flight route at all times.
Surely you’ll find some of these are quite interesting.
