Whether your latest adventure takes you to a new and unexplored city, or a whole different continent, your phone has more uses than just keeping in touch with family and friends.
Downloadable apps, many of them free, allow you do so many things, and with technology constantly improving, the abilities of apps just keeps increasing. There’s a wealth of apps designed to aid the adventurous traveler, and not just map based ones. Many provide guides around the more salubrious parts of town, or the secret areas that only locals know about, and some apps can even put you in touch with those locals (however, remember to stay safe). Apps, then, can really enhance your travel experience, making the adventure more personalized and interesting.
Map based apps are a must when it comes to exploring new places. Offering the ability to track around cities, and rural areas, discovering the best routes, many include satellite imaging, real-time traffic alerts and more.
This reliable, usable and very functional app has been guiding travelers for years, and it’s still as popular as ever. With satellite, street maps, interactive 360° and real time traffic reports, the route planning function has multiple options allowing for travel by foot, train, car and plane.
Getting Around Apps
For getting around in safety, Uber is a good option. Allowing you to connect with a local driver, they will pick you up and take you to your desired destination. Uber uses pricing accountability, meaning you always know where you stand, and a follow up reference service to ensure good practice.
Our phones have become so much more useful than mere communication devices, and making your travel adventures easy, safe and more enjoyable is a great use of their technology.
