Android Assistance: The Best Smartphone Apps According to Today’s Top Travel Experts
Applications that can help you on your travels are a great addition to your supplies. Whether you’re travel to another country, or just taking a day-trip upstate, the apps that developers have created can help you out in nearly anyway you can think of.
The Android app library is stacked with helpful apps for travelers of all kinds. They can help you find places to stay, give you directions one getting to your destination, and more. And since you’ll probably be carrying your smartphone around with you anyway, there’s really no excuse not to have some of them. Here are a few of the better apps that travel experts like.
This app has become more popular in the last year or so. It offers users places to stay at affordable rates so they don’t have to worry about finding hotel rooms in their budget.
Airbnb works like this: people who own homes will rent out their house or maybe just a room for a fee. Users search through the listings in the area they will be staying and make a deal with the owners. It takes the middleman and guess work out of finding places to stay, and the length of time you can rent varies.
This app has had some trouble with city and state governments in the last few months, so make sure to see if it’s available in the area you want to stay in. You can sign up for free and the app will also help you find the best bars and restaurants in the area.
Weather Live Free
This free Android weather app will keep you up-to-date on all of the weather information anywhere in the world so you’re always prepared.
The app is easy to use and it even has a widget built-in, so you can get all of the information you need quickly. The app will give you the current temperature and the “feels like” temperature so you can dress accordingly. It also has the wind speed, the humidity levels and the possible precipitation for the next 24 hours.
You can also use the seven-day forecast and the up-to-the-minute weather radar so you can know what to expect at any time.
If you don’t already have this helpful app on your phone, you should download it immediately. This GPS app can help solve all of your travel problems if you are driving.
The app will automatically find and recalculate so that you will have the quickest route to your final destination. It will also inform you of any road closures or traffic jams ahead and suggest alternate routes, which you can accept or deny. Google Maps even helps you explore your area so you can find gas, groceries or entertainment venues quickly and easily. The best part is, the app is free!
Try downloading these apps before your next adventure. They will help take the stress out of traveling so you can focus on fun.
