Whether you want to check the weather at your destination, book a hotel room, or find free WiFi, these travel apps are sure to make your trip easier than you expected.
1. TripIt: This app stores data about your trip, including hotel bookings for hotels in Dubai, itineraries, and flight details. Once you forward your confirmation e-mails from travel vendors to a TripIt address, the app will automatically create your itinerary. You can also access the app offline. Aside from your travel plans, you can also find information like maps, weather conditions and directions. With the paid version, you can even get flight information in real time. There is also a flight finder, a feature for choosing the best seat, and a way to track your travel reward points.
2. AccuWeather: The only thing worse than not being able to take a vacation is taking that vacation but being stuck inside due to bad weather. AccuWeather will keep you up-to-date with the latest weather information for any place in the world, in real time. You can get weather reports for up to 15 days ahead of time to help plan your trip.
3. WayGo Translator and Dictionary: Traveling abroad is great, but making the most of your trip can be difficult when you do not speak the language. If you cannot communicate on your own, WayGo is there to help. This translator and dictionary can be accessed offline, which is extremely helpful when you do not have WiFi near you. One great feature is that when you put the phone’s camera over text, the text will be instantly translated. It will also help you pronounce foreign words. If you are traveling with others, you can also share translations via email, SMS or social media.
Sure, traveling without gadgets is great, but having useful apps at your fingertips can save you a lot of trouble during your trip. From knowing when to carry an umbrella to figuring out directions when you are lost in a foreign country, the apps can help fix major travel problems.
