If there’s any time that mobile apps have the potential to truly shine it’s while we travel. Whether for business or pleasure, being away from home can be stressful. Now is the time to stay informed and connected, yet most of our usual methods are out of reach. Well-designed travel apps can fill that gap and provide a seamless travel experience.
FlightStats, for example, keeps travelers up to date on their flight times, delays, and airport conditions. FlightBoard does the same in real time, which can be handy if you’ve got a good connection. GateGuru is a wonderful helper between connections, listing important locations in the terminal including showers, restaurants, and WiFi availability.
For parents, there’s Mom Maps, which helps to steer families travelling to kid-friendly establishments, while AroundMe also provides information about nearby locales (though it’s not family-focused). These are only a few of the many apps which can make your travelling experience easier, less stressful, and more fun.
