Our Ten Favourite Travel Apps
With more people now choosing to travel with their smartphones and iPads it is no surprise to find that travel apps are highly in demand. The following are 10 of the best ones to make your trips more enjoyable.
One of the most important aspects of any trip is that of knowing how much everything costs. By having this popular currency convertor handy you can work out how much everything costs in pounds right away.
Knowing where you are and how to get around is pretty important too. Google Maps will give you detailed views of just about anywhere in the world. If you don’t have a mobile device to take away you then you could look at the good value iPads at Littlewoods and then make this one of the first apps you add on.
If you are going to be staying in hostels on your travels then this app will help you find a room wherever you are and for a good price.
The language barrier is another potential problem which your mobile device can help you overcome, thanks to this reliable translator. There are also language learning applications available if you want to learn the language well before you go.
You won’t want to miss out on great food while you are away. The beauty of the Foodspotting app is that you can search for specific dishes as well as for local restaurants in general.
If there is one thing every Brit needs to know when they are on holiday it is what the weather is going to be like. Hopefully it will be sun and high temperatures all the way for you. Unless you are going skiing, that is.
Long flights can leave you feeling horribly jet lagged, which can make you lose a day or so from the time in which you can enjoy the destination. This app asks for the details of your trip and then gives you personalised alarm clocks which have been designed to wake you at the ideal time. It is a simple idea but it could help you get more out of any long trips you make and feel a lot better as well.
Perfect World Clock
Sticking with clocks for a few minutes more, this world clock app will make sure that you don’t get confused even when you are hopping from one country to another on your travels.
Planning on going camping in the UK or mainland Europe? This little app will let you find out all about the campsites you could be interested in staying in.
Finally, you will want to make the most of your phone or iPad by checking for Wi-Fi hotspots wherever you take it. This app does this for and makes sure that you get the greatest possible use out of your mobile device. If you don’t yet have one to use then a quick visit to the Littlewoods online site will sort you out in no time.
