5 essential travel apps

iphoneapps

No doubt that there are a lot of things involved in the process of planning, booking and implementing your desire to travel, into reality. Luckily nowadays we live in a very advanced world, the recent explosion of "apps" have created an easier way of being able to carry out everyday tasks and decisions. Here I have listed my top 5 essential travel apps that will make planning your trip a lot easier.

Yelp

Got that hardcore craving for a muffin? Though don't know where to get one from? It always happens, maybe not always with muffins, though we all get the urge to eat. Yelp is a great way of finding what sort of food you are looking for. It also gives you a list of what's on a specific menu at bars and restaurants. Once you have used yelp to find what you want to eat and where, use the app - Open table to make reservations or bookings.

whatsapp

Whats App

We all need to keep in touch with family and friends whilst we are travelling, we want to share our experiences and special moments that reflect on the time we're having whilst travelling. Whats App is a great way to stay in touch with others, share your photos, videos and landmarks using wi-fi or 3G networks.

Weather Pro

When planning a trip it's always good to scope out what the weather will be like. weather pro is the best app for accurate, seven day forecasts and weather reports in over two million locations worldwide.

Jet Lag Genie

Want to beat jet lag whilst travelling? It can take up a lot of your time and energy adjusting your body clock to your new surroundings, no one wants to arrive at their destination filled with a cloudy tired headspace. The jet lag genie app allows you to improve this.

Just by entering your flight times and destination, the app will generate the best times to sleep, eat, expose yourself to sunlight etc... All of these custom factors contribute into the reduction of your jet lag.

Travel Safe Pro

Safety is a must when travelling, especially when you are in a foreign place. You may have your travel insurance though it is handy to have the correct information on what you would do or who you would seek help from in an emergency.

Travel safe pro gives you information on all emergency services around the world, it allows quick access in case of an emergency whilst travelling overseas and includes a speed dial function, contact numbers for the police, medical and fire services, also the embassy for the travellers country... C'mon guys how many travelers have you heard losing their passports! This app is great.
