6 Must Have iPhone Travel Apps


The world is changing. Phones that were earlier only used for talking or texting are now serving several other purposes. The introduction of iPhones and Android devices has completely revolutionized the world.

iPhone was among the first devices to start having such applications. It has its own application store (iTunes) that has thousands of different applications, including travelling apps. Given below are six such travelling apps that are a must have for every traveler.

HearPlanet

This application only costs $5.99 to get on your iPhone. Its main purpose is to tell you about the great attractions around you. It doesn’t matter where you go, this travelling app will be your local guide telling you about the best destinations in the city you are in. The application also has the play loud feature that will help you decide your destination based on Wikipedia descriptions.

World Customs & Cultures

This application is available for free on the application store. The application is your guide that will tell you about the customs and tradition of the place you are traveling to. If you are at a new place and don’t know how to behave in a certain situation, you can seek help from this app. It will tell you about the greetings, communication style, and law and order of the region.

    Thanks for taking the time to post these great travel apps, Anirudh. My position at DISH requires that I travel all over the word, so I always have an eye out for travel apps to make life in the air a little easier. HearPlanet and Flight Track Pro are both new to me; I will give them a shot next time I leave town. I would like to recommend an app that I never leave home without. It’s the DISH Remote Access app, and I can use it to stream live TV or DVR recordings from my Hopper DVR to my phone anywhere I can get 3g, 4g or WIFI. It really helps to pass the inevitable flight delay, but I use it every day to watch my Denver local news shows when I am out of town.
