The Best Travel Mobile Apps

The Best Travel Mobile Apps

Traveling has become more complicated as the world has become more complicated. A great way to make travel a little bit easier is to know which mobile apps are most helpful for anyone going on vacation or a business trip.

Tripit is a handy mobile app that offers both a free version and a paid version. The app tracks a user’s airline miles and alerts them if there is a delay in their scheduled flight. All the user has to do is forward emails such as their airfare confirmation, bus or hotel reservations and more. Tripit then organizes all of these emails and makes it easier to access them by organizing an itinerary for the user to follow. It also gives people the ability to share their travel itinerary with anyone they choose.

GateGuru is an app that provides users with a map of whatever airport they are flying into. The app neatly organizes information such as which services, shops and restaurants are near which gates. This helps users maximize their time in the airport between flights. GateGuru works with airports in Canada and the U.S.

iTalk Lite is a very unique app that lets users record the sounds they hear in their surroundings, such as street performances, birds singing, waves crashing against the shore and any other sound they would like to capture.

Hopstop is a great app for those who rely on public transportation when they travel. All a user has to do is plug in where they are and where they want to go and the app will provide them with the bus and/or train routes for cities such as Paris, San Francisco and New York.

These travel apps can be a person’s best friend while trying to navigate an unfamiliar town.
