Travelling all over the world is getting simpler by the day mainly because of the plethora of free and paid-for apps that allow us to track flights, book hotels, see weather forecasts and connect to our loved ones while travelling. If you are about to travel to another country either for business or pleasure, here are my recommendations for the top 4 travel-ready apps for your smartphone or tablet PC:
This amazing app helps you make an informed decision about your next travel destination anywhere in the world. TourWrist is the recipient of several awards at the top technology events. In essence, TourWrist allows its users to upload and publish panorama shots of different locations. By adding this handy app to your iPhone or android smartphone you can explore more than 30,000 tours in 360 degrees from the comfort of your home.
WeatherPro is the ultimate when it comes to offering you the best 24/7 weather forecast. This amazing app is available for different platforms and keeps you updated on weather changes in more than 2 million locations. There is no wonder why WeatherPro is Europe’s most popular paid-for app. Yes, you heard it right, this app is not free but a small price is nothing compared to how much it promises to enrich your travel experience.
HotelTonight is a fantastic smartphone app for frequent travelers. Whether you are a last minute traveler or frequently get simply stranded on an airport due to unexpected delays in your flight, HotelTonight is designed to help you find the best and most affordable hotel room in a city where you are a complete stranger. Sounds like the perfect backup plan for your travel thrills!
This smartphone app available for iOS, Android and Windows OS is a must-have for all travelers who wish to track flights and learn about arrival and departure timings of different flights. FlightTrack Pro even highlights the closest gates and terminals so you can get out of the airport without wasting any time. Since I happen to be a control freak, FlightTrack Pro is one of my all-time favorite apps as it helps me feel in control of my travel plans even when I’m onboard an airplane that is coasting thousands of feet up in the air.
