Summer is almost here, and I am pretty sure you’re gearing up for some road time! I don’t know about you, but I am hearing about solo travel more and more. Truth be told, I am going to embark on a solo trip pretty soon, and I am a bit anxious about it. If you have got the iPhone, though, you’ll be happy to know that there cool apps that will do away with the need for a real travel buddy. Check them out.
So why is this app cool? Well, if you’re going to another country, you’ll be trying to avoid using 3G (or even EDGE). Roaming charges are outrageous, aren’t they? So your best bet is to look for Wi-Fi hotspots! With this app, you can find information on Wi-Fi access points in more than 140 countries. No need to walk around waving your iPhone – just check the app and go where you need to go.
If you’re like me, you might have some problems keeping track of your itinerary and other travel details. That’s why I always did best when there was someone with me to pay attention to these things. With TripIt, you can input all the data that you need – and then forget about it. You can store information and access it offline; you can even access maps and directions so you won’t get lost!
This app, I can surely use. Say you find yourself in some street. You don’t know anything about your surroundings. Use this app and find information on practically everything there is in the area – gas stations, ATMs, stores, and more. You can also get maps and directions.
All these apps are FREE. Now all I need is an iPhone.
