If you think that you will resort to penny-pinching by gifting free apps, least to say you will be missing out on a lot. Productive travel apps are every travellers delight. Moreover, these apps are affordable and are a great value for money. Presenting you the top 5 apps to drool over this fall and beyond:
1. FlightTrack 5 app: Exclusively for the flyers, the FlightTrack 5 app allows you to check flight schedules, locate terminals, predict flight delays based on warnings issued by airports, etc. This app allows you to travel hassle free and keeps you out of your flying pet peeves.
Available for $4.99 on Android and Apple.
2. Tripit: This clever little app turns your smartphone into a pocket-sized PA. Just forward all your flight, hotel and car rental reservations to Tripit and it creates a digital itinerary for your trip that you can print out for yourself or share. A must download for business travellers.
Available on IOS and Android, free
3. Word Lens: As the name suggest, this app is extremely helpful to those who aren’t familiar with the language of a particular place. But, it only works for written or printed form and not for conversational activities. For instance, if you walk into a restaurant and check the menu card only to find out that you don’t know what’s written over there, this app will help you out then and there. All you need to do is click a pic via your phone and and the app will supply a translation. Word Lens currently works on printed Spanish, French, Italian, German, and Portuguese and is adding new languages often (it doesn’t work with handwritten notes, by the way).
Available for $4.99 on Android and free on Apple; translation packs on Apple cost $4.99.
4. Foodspotting: Exclusively for foodies, this app gives you user-generated restaurant recommendations for whichever city you are in. Just open it up, search for whatever dish you fancy at that moment and it shows all the best places to find it, but within a certain radius.
iOS and Android, free
5. JetLag Genie
Jet lag is a drag for any traveller. But here’s an app that can minimize the annoying effects of Jrt lag to a significant extent. Pop your travel dates, destination and usual bedtime into this app and it comes back with personalised alarm clocks to soften the time-lag blow.
So, which is your favourite travel app?
