Check the best iPhone and iPad apps for travel and vacation .
If you are planning to go on holiday or on a longer trip you have to be ready.
How? With useful apps.
We have prepared for you a top of the most useful Apple apps for journeys/trips.
The first place is taken by Tripit, a free app that can organize the trip that you want to take effortlessly.
For a trip you need a lot of reservations, accommodation arrangements and other things that require phone or e-mail confirmation.
Whether you want to go to Disneyland or to Hong Kong, Tripit will hold and sort all documents coming via email by date and time. Moreover, the application can monitor the time your plane takes off and you can get alerts when there is a vacancy and send e-mails to your travel partners/friends.
The second place in the top 5 of useful apps for a trip is the Skype app.
It is particularly useful when you travel to an area where there is no coverage or signal or to a country that doesn’t have international calls (policy).
Skype will no doubt save you a lot of money. All you have to do is be in an area that has Wi-Fi connection and download the app for iOS, and then you can make free calls and solve any problem that you may encounter.
The third place is occupied by Offmaps 2 which is a convenient app used to download maps that can be employed/utilized without being connected to the internet.
Certainly, the app is not free of charge: any map that you download costs approx. a dollar. Offmaps 2 is suitable for travelers that do not want to pay a fortune on mobile data connection and because they can keep on their iPhone only the maps that are necessary for their current trip.
We have included this one in the top 5 most useful iOS apps for travels due to the low price of the maps and the efficient functionality in the offline mode.
On the 4th place is Flightaware, a simple app that does exactly what its name suggests: it monitors flights and sends notifications according to your requirements.
You can set alerts, find out about flight delays, changes at the boarding gates, mainly any detail related to air travel /travelling by plane.
The 5th place is held by Boingo Wi-Fi finder, the app that will help you find the hidden Hot Spot Wi-Fi signals.
The connections are rendered according to colours: the green ones represent strong, quality signals, the yellow ones are good/trusted signals and the red ones are weak/untrusted signals.
A Wi-Fi connection is more than necessary in any trip and Boingo Wi-Fi Finder helps us to get a stable signal and have quality Internet access on our trips.
