Cell phones are no more only about ‘communication’ and hold great importance in the daily life of every human-being. From studying to playing games; smart phones have been helping us at every stage of life.
And what if we tell you that there are applications which may help you during your wanderlust? Yes, we are not lying. If you are a fan of wanderlust then you must always keep these applications installed in your device.
Well, here are top 5 applications which will make travelling both; fun and easy for you:
Google Trips is basically a compiler that scans through your trip-related info with the assistance of Google services. Just like your flight and hotel bookings often show up on Google Now, Google trips extracts that information from Gmail. Apart from that, it uses Google's already robust Maps to show you nearby attractions and restaurants. It has a feature that gives you an itinerary for the day if you wish to. This neat app will ensure that you never land in any trouble and is also very reliable.
Easy Currency Converter
As straightforward as its name, Easy Currency converter gets the job done and you can rely on for currency conversions. It updates whenever you are connected and allows you to save numerous currencies offline. All you need to do is select currencies, start your favourites and save for offline. The only drawback seems to be the UI which is by and large primitive. But that's only on Android. Functionality comes over aesthetics here. And don't worry, it has added Bitcoin as well!
This should be your go-to app for affordable flights, car rentals, and hotels. It is an all-in-one for your transport and accommodation needs. It has the most affordable time and flights listed in neat lists. For the adventurer in you, the app can surprise you whenever you type “Everywhere" in the search. It comes up with the cheapest travels to destinations around the world. Added benefits: it has its own frequent flyer miles program and has no additional fees. It is also smart enough to show you cheaper routes to cities which have multiple airports. For last minute trips, this app should be your first stop.
One of the best things to bring back from any trip you take to a foreign land is the culture and language of the place. Duolingo allows you to learn new languages on the go for free. This app has been a trusted one for many users to learn the basics of any, among a host of popular languages. It is fun, has a net UI, and uses visual, audio and textual aid to help you get a good grip on the language. What's more, you can practice what you learn while travelling, and impress the locals with your knowledge of the same.
Learning a new language is not easy and while you may know the basics, it is still a foreign language to you. Finding yourself in a new land with little connection may be your idea of a perfect holiday, but sometimes you need to navigate through signs and text which you don't understand to reach a destination or even interact with locals. Google Translate, a long and withstanding service from Google, will come to your rescue. You can translate and make the local you're speaking to, listen to the audio. No need to fret about the accent and the pronunciation
