Spring break is here and many of us are traveling. We highly recommend some of our favorite mobile apps below. Many of them are available for Android, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry platforms, but all of them are available on Apple’s iOS devices.
Trip Planning and Management
With these apps, you can book flights and hotels, manage your itinerary and more!
Some of the most recognizable travel booking apps are Orbitz, Priceline, Booking.com, Expedia, and Travelocity.
TripIt (free) saves all your trip details in one convenient place. All you have to do is forward your reservation emails to your TripIt account, and it automatically adds them to your itinerary.
Yelp and TripAdvisor’s app (free) provides you with millions of user reviews of restaurants, hotels, and sights.
Smart Traveler (free), from the US State Department, includes basic information on each country, plus travel advisories. Smart Traveler provides you with travel alerts, travel warnings, maps, U.S. embassy locations, and more.
If you are traveling abroad Word Lens is the app for you! With Word Lens, you can aim your smartphone’s camera at a sign in a foreign language, and Word Lens will instantly translate it for you (available for Spanish, French, German, and Italian)!
