I recently downloaded a great new app from HotelsCombined that has made my life so much easier when it comes to booking hotels. All I need to do is open up the app and search for hotels in my destination, use the filters to get exactly the hotel I need and then book – it’s that simple. Being able to look at a long list of hotels and compare the prices takes all of the stress out of planning a trip abroad. It then got me to thinking about the other travel apps that I can’t travel without. There are now 4 on my list, one of which is the HotlesCombined app, here are the other 3:
YELP – this application if pronounced sounds almost alike to the sound a donkey makes. It is a very good to go app because it comes in handy as an online guide through the metropolis of any city and directory for important contact information as well as comprehensive reviews on local restaurants, shops, bars and other business establishments that will help you during your stay. It also helps to narrow your searches based on distance, hours, price and you can even get to share your thoughts about the services rendered to you on the usual social networks even as you take a cue from the experiences of others.
GOOGLE TRANSLATE – I’ll describe this as remarkably cool and efficient for me. It is a very useful app that affords the user correct translations on the go between 80 different languages. That is quite a number wouldn’t you agree?
It allows you to listen to translations out loud on your mobile phone and can even pick the words as you type them on screen. And it’s even trendy because you can get to star your favorite words and phrases for offline use.
And lastly XE CURRENCY – you shouldn’t even bother to board any flight without this application handy. It stands out for me as a very accurate currency conversion application since it uses live currency rates. And unlike most currency conversion applications, it is free and its user interface is equally outstanding.
These 4 apps have greatly helped my travels and made them smoother even as they have left my phone smarter and the exciting thing is they are completely free for downloads.
