Essential Apps for Travel

Some of us might be the tiniest bit dependent on technology, and for certain among us, having Google maps with a built-in "you are here" has been life-changing. Here are some of our favorite apps for traveling.
  • Flight Update Pro: Provides flight status, gate numbers, Google Map flight tracking, and FAA alerts.
  • Babelingo Translated Phrases: An 11-language phrasebook for easy communication when you’re abroad.
  • Recommended Kid Games: Keeps kids amused during long plane rides.
  • Currency: Provides up-to-date exchange rates and a currency converter. 
  • Word Lens:  An augmented reality app that translates in real time and space.
  • TripAdvisor:  Take a "virtual walk" through your destination and get interactive hotel reviews along with restaurant and activity recommendations. 
(Be sure to check out our tips on avoiding roaming fees when traveling abroad.)
