Last year I wrote about my favorite travel apps to take on vacation, and while I still love and use most of those apps, I realize that in this day and age, apps come and go at a fairly quick rate. Here are some of my new favorite travel apps that have landed on my radar this year. Hopefully, you will love them as much as I do.
Field Trip works with Google to send you personalized alerts when something of interest is near your location. It includes a photo, historical facts, and pinpoints the location on Google Maps for you. You can set your favorites and also set it to notify you when are near points of interest. Similar to a virtual tour guide, this is a fun app to have along when you are visiting an unfamiliar city, teaching travelers new facts along the way.
This app allows you to do a few different things. You can find both free and public wi-fi that is near your current location, you can search for free and public wi-fi hotspots anywhere in the world, and you can download an offline database for finding public wi-fi when not online. This is super handy when traveling and in my daily life.
